Golden with a white head. Aroma is full of earthy hops, fruits, toasty malts. Medium, crisp body. Flavor is cereal grains, earthy hops, light fruit. Finish is long and bitter. On the hoppier end for a Pils. Very nice.

Can to pils glass - Cloudy light yellow color with a small head. I didn’t like it on first sip because it seemed to have a metal taste to it but that went away. Seems fairly hoppy for a pils and yes, it’s dry on the finish.

Can from trade with Brian. Snifter at home. Pours a clear gold with a one finger white head. Some lacing. Aroma is bread, cereal, whole grains, hay. The taste is solid grains, bread, cheerios, grass and alfalfa. Light body and moderate carb. Slight bitter ending. Very nice pils.

oliodnb (275) - ITALY - JUL 22, 2014
Clear pale yellow, thick white head. Aroma is malts and noble hops, typical pils. Light refreshing malty taste with a nice hoppy bitterness. Light lemon and grassy touch. Only bad thing is a faint soapy aftertaste. Interesting beer.

JDBaker11058 (1242) - Maryland, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Appearance: clear medium gold, with a creamy bright white head. Aroma: grassy, peppery hops over grains and a hint of corn. Taste: hoppy up front, with grass, pepper, and delicate floral notes, over a firm but restrained malt backbone reminiscent of toasted white bread. Finish: light lemon bitterness, with lingering notes of saltine crackers and mineral water. Notes: Slick, with a full but lightly prickly palate. On the bitter side for a pils, but not to the level, say, of Victory’s Prima Pils. Not bad. Quite drinkable.

Palme (3284) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
0.355l can brought home from Mikkeller & Friends. This is a cloudy almost yellow-ish golden one with a small white top. It also has lots of tiny floaters floating about in the glass. Nice nose. It has a nice little hoppy punch but I think the dominating factor here is hay and hamster food/sawdust/grains. Melody fruity with a nice amount of yeast as well. Quite nice. The taste has a good amount of yeast also. The melony kind. In the mouth it feels light oily and it’s softly carbonated with those small prickling bubbles. Is this a pilsner? It tastes more like a hybrid of a Belgian ale, lager and heffe. Mildly fruit bitter with old grass in the finish. A little metallic grainy tail in the aftertaste. Not a huge favorite but nice as a different one. 15.01.2014

One of the better pilsners out there. Dry and malty with a malty finish. Smells unpleasant and pours light yellow. Had at home ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
