Bottle@Home. Hmmm... hard to rate such a beer as it’s not my style at all. However for a Pils it’s actually very well brewed. So I did like it, but compared to beers I prefer it gets a low rating. Technically I would give it a 4.0.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas schaut das Elch-Bräu goldgelb und leicht trüb aus. Geruchlich ists hopfig und leicht getreidig. Der Antrunk ist leicht fruchtig-säuerlich und dezent hopfig. Fazit: Ein sehr feines, leckeres naturtrübes Pils, welches keine Wünsche offen lässt.

It’s light golden with a lot of tiny particles making it rather unclear and the head is white. The aroma has notes of malt, light cabbage and apple. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, fruit and the finish is dry and citrussy.
