2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear, pale gold, with a generous, creamy white head.
Soft, flowery hop aroma, but with a crude, sweet malt background, reminiscent of some oversweetened budget beer.
Dryish, vaguely hoppy but bland lager flavor. Ditto for aftertaste.
Light bodied, clean mouthfeel, mild carbonation.
Awfully boring. A grave disappointment after getting my hopes up from their rather excellent schwartzbier...

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ OTTO Festival. Standard lager look. Sweet malts aroma. Flavor is like sweetened malts. Doesn’t really taste like pilsener.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smallish head, golden color. Bread and rubber in a bit too sharp aroma. Balanced, malty, buttery flavor. Very fresh and and drinkable. No unpleasant bitterness. Not the most original beer but good anyways. Will buy again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home, from Tbone, thanks! Strawberry blonde color. Slightly salty, malty aroma. Malty, buttery, salty sweetish flavor. Licorice and buttery notes in the aftertaste. Is this really a pilsener?

Bottle at chris_o’s smiths on, wheres my rochefort and the lube tasting. Alround rating: A fairly decent pilsner, balanced, quite drinkable if perhap lacking character.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught. Very pale, tiny white head. Almost no aroma. But the taste is good for a Finnish lager, altough it’s quite untasty as a whole.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris O’s Pre GBBF Tasting
Taking Ian’s logic even further this could also be translated as prick my star, which is even worse and possibly even funnier. Bright white topped pale gold affair with a hardware shop full of metal. Great name, fail beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Chris_o Pre GBBF Shindig 08. This gets extra points for being called Prickmeister, which in English is very, very funny in a schoolboy sort of way. It’s a classic gold colour with a thin white head. It’s ok, an ok lager. Bit tinny and metallic on the carbonation especially. Not great, but hey the name......
