wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle from Carringtons, Chorlton, shared with Slothez. Pallid yellow pour with a fading white head. Some grassy hop and citrus notes in the nose and flavour, alongside some biscuity malts. Crisp ,clean and easy drinking. Dryish finish. Not really my favourite style, but as pilseners go I suppose this is above average.

tdtm82 (668) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2011
Bottle; home, many thanks My Brewery Tap. Good which lacing, classic larger appearance, pale yellow. Aroma is citrus, banana, lemon, a nice hop bite. Taste is grass, honey, lemon, citrus, nice bitterness levels, banana, some toffee, a really pleasant grassy-citric bite and needs to be enjoyed by the session. Lovely beer and one I can’t wait to have on tap. Calling Euston Tap.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2011
[500ml bottle, The Bottle, York] Pours a hazy but vibrant lemon yellow with a inch-high fluffy white head that retains all the way down to the end. Decent level of carbonation. Aromas of bitter hop and a slight crisp sweetness, on the palate it comes across as a classic pilsner with some spicy hop and a touch of earthiness, brought together with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Really very good indeed [02032011]
