3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Hazy golden lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Good retention. The nose offers earthy, peppery hops overlying a thin layer of pale biscuity malt. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and busy carbonation. Well-balanced flavor. Sweet pale malts stabilized by herbal, peppery, spicy hop bitterness. Finishes crisp and bittersweet (more sweet than bitter). Beer temperature was about 65°F. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

On tap at FFF; dimpled mug seemed questionable, he head dissipated quickly. Frothy head from the tap initially. Subdued pils aromas. Florals and grains really. Subdued sums it up. It tastes quality, but simpler than id expect, honestly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2011 22 oz. bottle sent by lushawn- thanks a ton, Shawn! Pours a bright yellow-gold color with a small-medium white head that fizzes down to a film relatively quickly. Aroma of clean, grassy noble hops, bready and sweet pale malts, straw, sugar, and crackers. Flavor is just the same as the nose- bright, clean, refreshing, and just hoppy enough to make it interesting. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, grassy, bready mouthfeel. Dry finish. Really nice surprise, a pilsener with some character that still drinks so easily. Why aren’t more pilseners like this?

Have to agree with Craig here, but it’s really DRIED OUT. I need to have it in the US. Colour is golden copper-bronze, aroma is of spices, herbs and old socks. Taste is orange zest peal, grapefruit, spices, like a nice hot curry on the palate, hops are dried out, would have no clue how to label this beer’s style though but from taste it is like an old ale or a spiced ale. Really odd.

A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to the Cad.
Gold with a thin white head. Quite floral and bright. Interesting crisp hops. Faint metal and mineral notes. Slight yeast showing through. Not particularly pils like but nice enough.
