2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can... Hazy yellow pour with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Decent retention. The nose presents cereal grains, and musky and citrusy hops. Medium-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is citrusy, grainy, biscuit-sweet and lightly bitter. The malt and hops are disjointed. Not really bittersweet. More like bitter, and then lightly sweet. Finishes bittersweet in the finish and then there is a lingering, mildly bitter component.

I like this much better than the ratings. On tap at 28 Springs. Thanks so much Casey. Pours a light golden clear yellow. Hoppy aroma, almost Pale Aleish. Slight sweetness. Nice, flavorful beer. Very nice.

Nice, well-rounded pilsner with a distinct long bitterness. Pleasant thick and foamy texture. Somewhat sweet to start.

Cloudy golden pour with a frothy white head. Tangy on the palate. Grain, hops, pineapple, pine and orange peel. I had this in Wetherspoons in Blackrock. Great fridge filler range of beers.

The beer is fruity, moderately bitter with aromas of wet grains and some little esters like apricot. Watery and refreshing. Nice stuff for a lager but a suspicious Pilsner. Nothing amazing.

Can at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Gold with a moderate white head and a light fizz. Tropical notes up front, apricot and suchlike, followed by a light grassiness. Pleasant but not overwhelming sweetness. An atypical pilsener with a distinct American influence, and all the better for it.
