4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very nice Pils. Light golden color, good head retention, nice bitter hops flavor. No perceptible aromatic hops, which I like. This is one of the few Pilseners made outside of Germany which really stands up well in the style. More character and hop taste than mainstream German PIlseners like Warsteiner, Beck´s and König. The only problem is that it is not well known outside of Austria and tends to stay on the shelf a long time. So finding a fresh bottle may be a problem.

500 ml bottle. Pours a yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of grains, fresh grassy hops and some herbs. Flavour of fresh herbal hops, grainy malts, bitterness and some mild citrus. Medium bodied. Surprisingly rich for a pils. Good and very quaffable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had a grassy hop character to it that I dug quite a bit more than the last pils. Also slight sweetness from the grain and corn(?) but a clean, crisp drink.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,5 liter can. Not bad at the start, after that it goes downhill. This one is a little too bitter for me.

0.5 l bottle form Alko. Quite nice head, light yellow colour, lots of bubbles. Taste has some hops or CO2 with malts. Interesting, it tastes like a dark lager. Quite nice Pilsener.
