An okay pilsener. Pours golden, thick white head. Cascade hops give it a mild bitter grassy hop character. Tried with Natalya and Paul in Maastricht in 2016.

nephirem (246) - CROATIA - JUL 12, 2016
Pours clear golden color with medium, short lasting soapy looking white head that leaves some nice lacing. Nose is your typical pilsner but with a bit more hops to it. Medium body with soft carbonation. Watery texture. Starts of sweet, ends a bit on the bitter side. Lovely balanced and refreshing. Aroma of malts, yeast, hops. A bit grassy and herbal. Overall, nice one. Really good beer for what it is. Very refreshing.

On tap. Pale malt aroma, with honey and a bit of sourness. Crisp and bitter taste, with a corn-like sweet layer underneath. Drinkable.
