3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nearly clear gold pour with a 1 finger fluffy white head. Aroma of cereal, grassy hops, spicy hops, light floral hops, light breadiness and a sweet cooked fruit note that I can’t really put my finger on. Flavor is loaded with cereal, toast, and crusty bread up front, a little oily booziness right after that, honey, lots of spicy hops, some grassy hops vegetal notes, and distant fruity floral hops. Light to medium body with a creamy to oily entry, oily to dry finish and light, but sharp carbonation. Decent Pilsener, but I can’t really say that I enjoyed this too much, too heavy and oily, mixed with more booziness than it should have and some kinda weird vegetal notes. None of that is really that strong, but it’s enough to separate it from a really good Pils.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Fresh cut grass, mineral water, lemon, grains, and a spicy herbal note hit the nose on this one. It pours a murky orange yellow color with a medium thick, white head that leaves a moderate ring, a light surface dusting, and a very light, mostly runny lace. It’s taste is a medium bitter and sweet, well balanced, with a light sour. The creamy-oily texture is accompanied by a light, low, creamy carbonation with a medium full body. A sour and bitter citrus note finish it off with a bit of mineral rock and bread. The sour, bitter citrus lingers pretty heavily in the aftertaste, but it has a lemonade like refreshing quality to it.

Low lacing near-white head. Hazy brass colored body. Crisp pilsner malt aroma. Hint of freshly cut grass. Mid-bodied. Fairly sweet for a pilsner, yet very elegant and clean. Light toasted malts, hay/grass and a mild underlying bitterness. Drinks very good. [Draft at Mikkeller, Viktoriagade]
