4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hoppy aroma and flavor. Citrus. Pretty dark and cloudy for a pilsener. Just a bit thin, but with a long hopbitter finish. The definite Czech-type pilsener, brewed in Amsterdam. Highly recommended.

When this is a Pilsener, it must be absolutely one of the best pilseners.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 Taste has been explicitly described by the others. That this beer is actually a pilsener, i couldn’t imagine. Full of taste, delicious aroma. If this is truly a pilsener, it is a HELL of a pilsener!

Hoppy perfume aroma. Hazy, golden colour, good lace. Very hoppy and dry, light sweet, full. Long lasting finish. Probably the best pilsener I ever had.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy light peach/yellow with a thick 1/2’ creamy, pocky, tight white head. Massive carbonation. Quite a strange aroma. Horses ass, wool, sweet/tart candy and some citrus. Bubbly body, but not spritzy. Tastes like what the inside of a horse stable smells like, but I like it. Very tart, dry, herby and quenching. Lemony and spicy bitter hops. The aroma and taste will definately offend some, but I found it funky and incredibly drinkable. One question? How do they get that aroma and flavor in there, never mind I’d rather not know.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2006 Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately yeasty (horseblanket), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly malty (toasted grain), with a fairly strong note of band-aid, lesser note of lemon zest. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Strange for a "pilsner", no doubt, as it’s clearly a Brett-fermented brew and as a result very horsey and phenolic (you will be reminded of Orval). I wish the other components could keep up, which keeps it from being a hit (and yeah, it’s not close to style, but it is quite interesting).

Very good. Lots of hoppy dryness, and a citrus accent.
