3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a clear pale color with an average to large frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Moderate grass hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet dry finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Appealing aroma of malt and floral hops. Clear straw amber color with a generous 1" rocky white head, strips of lace. Taste is clear light malt that adds floral hops and carbonation on the swallow, all parts moving neatly through a short finish. A thirst quenching pilsner, better than most.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Weihenstephaner pub in Tbilisi (40 cl / 5.50 GEL). Near clear pale golden; head bright white, beautiful, soft, fluffy. Excellent retention, fantastic lacing! Bubbling still after a while. This is a 5/5! Nose... at first it feels like sniffing a handful of noble hop pellets... it just seems so raw and grassy, I almost get the feeling this beer is meant for cows to eat. The citrusy-rhubarby raw sourness-bitterness is overwhelming - I am not a fan but I’m terribly intrigued. Taste is kinda similar with the raw, grassy hoppiness very much present, but it also has a palate-scraping grainy sidenote. Palate on the dry side, slightly sticky on the roof of the mouth, grainy, thick but not heavy, carbonation active. A strange, raw Pilsener, I’ve never had anything like this before. Could not help but feel intrigued, and I did enjoy contemplating on it - that calls for extra points, doesn’t it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It’s a crystal clear golden beer with a finger-thick, dense, off-white head leaving cute lacings. The aroma has a little touch of pale malts, with a nice fruityness, some grass and pine cones and a faint citrusy touch. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a pleasant carbonation level, semi-dry on the palate. Grains, fruityness, some sweetness and a nice, balancing bitterness in the flavor, with some grassy, piney and faintly peppery hints in the finish. This is what a pilsner should taste, far from the bland industrial lagers claiming to be a pilsner. Moreish. 141207

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Buona birra, in linea con lo stile che però mi è stata servita ad una temperatura non adatta. Aroma di fieno e lievemente citrico, in blocco miele d’acacia, pane croccante e finale erbaceo secco, quanto amaro immediato. Le pilsner rimangono ottime birre, ma aspettavo meglio.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bue sur place en fût): Des zestes citronnés et un déploiement herbacé habite cette pilsener surprenante. Sa corpulence accentue le côté mielleux et son fini assez sec, la buvabilité.
