gnoff (7844) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle at a blind tasting at Haket during Gothenburg Beer Festival 2011. Sampled on Friday September 2, 2011
One of the four beers in the "Pale Lager" part of the beer judge part of the festival competition.
Scent is malt, sweet, sugar, some acidic notes of citrus. Clear, straw yellow color with a white head. Taste is fruity, soft, holds some bitterness. A bit thin mouthfeel with low co2.
Personally scored it 41/50 using the shbf old summing protocol and second place, with all 5 judges together it ended up in second place.

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2011
Sampled at Gothenburg Beer Festival 2011. September 2, 2011
Sweet and pretty weak aromas of creamy malt, czech hops and spices. Rather clean taste with some hop character left and bitterness left. For me another decent pils, not much more.

pavelociped (12) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 24, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2011 Virágozzék ezer (komló)virág! Melyeket mintha csípős, vadul zsibongó darazsak poroztak volna be... (Tudom, tudom, másképp megy ez.) A standard láger mimikri mögött egy IPÁ-san feltuningolt sör lelke lakik a lassan horpadó hab alatt. Ő a nehézlovasság a pilseniek csatasorában, nem egy egyszerű talpas huszita. * Let a thousand (hop)flowers bloom! Flowers which seem to have been pollinated by stingy, wild wasps... (I know though that this is not the way it works.) Beyond the mimicry of an average lager there dwells the soul of an IPA-style beer under the layers of slowly diminishing foam. This beer is definitely one of the heavy players in the league of pilsner type beers.

CarlJonas (212) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2011
If it looks, smells and tastes like beer, it’s probably a really good Bohemian Pilsner. Not much else to say about this. It’s like the beer equivalent to water, but in a good way.
