Mandag i annen feb-15, den første på det som skulle vise seg å bli en kveld med bare gode (og til dels fremragende øl): klar strågul, lite skum. Lett bitterhet med akkurat passe sødme. Elegant.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Low carbonation and a daunting orange colour. Malty biscuit and salt and just a very nice all round pils. Hops are the main feature here. Well done.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.3%. Clear golden colour, moderate to low white head. Nice aroma of floral, grassy and herbal hops, some sweetish malts in the background. Medium sweet and malty flavour, followed by distinct herbal hops. A good pilsener indeed, but some European ones are better.
