3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle, clear gold colour, small white head. Aroma of Biscuit, grain, caramel with herbal and floral hops. Taste is a bit on the bitter side, though quite balanced, bitter finish, medium body, light carbonation. Very good and refreshing pilsener with some character and decent amount bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden with a decent head disappearing quite quickly. Leaves a bit of a lacing behind. Aromas of grassy hops and (bready?) malts. Hops aren’t quite as fresh as I was hoping. Taste is quite similar, well balanced. Carbonation suits the beer fine. Rather okay beer, not the best of pilseners, but not that far either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours completely clear golden with a medium-sized white head that starts to fade quickly. Aroma of hay, cereal, some herbal notes - pale, clean maltiness dominates with a little balancing hoppiness. Taste is malty and clean, as is required by this style. Hoppiness is light to medium; bitterness quite light to my taste. Light body with enough carbonation for an easily drinkable palate - very refreshing. Simple, drinkable pilsener that sets example for bigger breweries how to brew a simple but tasty beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2013 Aliased as "Rock More Beer" @ Viking Grace’s Rockmore pub. Clear pale golden colour with some head which disappears quite soon but leaves lacing on the glass. Aromas of fresh grassy hops, as well as grainy and sweet malts. Taste is also freshly grassy hoppy and bitter. The malt body is medium full and quite sweet, which is nice. Extra point for being organic.
Update: Fresher bottle has a buttery diacetyl aroma and less sweetness. This is a really good pilsner - refreshing, clean and aromatic.
