3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Clear gold with a lasting white head. Lacks aroma, mildly citrusy with some slight grainy malt. Flavour is a balance of honey clean malts and a citric slightly flowery hop finish. Very mellow, and less hoppy than I expect for a Pilsener. Still a pleasant beer though.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light yellow, small white head. Citrusy aroma. Fresh straw like taste, refreshing. Light on the tongue. Almost a white wine vinegar taste in here as well. Started on quite nice, but I found it a little bland and watery as it finished (this was a pretty old bottle too mind you). Not bad though, and a rare treat, thanks.

Bottled @ Kō 2005: Yellow coloured. Clear. Off white head. Sweet, malty and fruity aroma. Yeast, spice(Corriander), light soap, banana and grape in the flavour. Is medium bitter in the end, and has a medium body, giving a nice long duration on the palate.

This is a welcome change to the usual procession of strong ales in this stable of beers. Good presentation in the glass although a little hazy for the style. There is a strong presence of herbaceous hop aroma somewhat like a Jever Pils. The flavour is dry and clean with a slight back palate of sourness that does not detract from the overall enjoyment of this beer.

Hazy golden colour with a white head. Malty aroma with a nice sweetness and a balanced hoppyness. Flavor starts malty then becomes bitter and dry.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery in Amsterdam. Cardboard/glue aroma. Slightly hazey appearance, with a persistent thin head and thick lacing. Flavoursome Pilsener, with a real herby, medicinal quality - faintly reminiscent of chloraseptic throatspray. Solid in the mouth. Despite the above description, I enjoyed this - quite engaging and still refreshing.

Unpilsenerlike large head, that stays for a while. Starts very common but ends up into a sour-bitter finish. Excellent pilsener, pretty fullbodied.
