3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed 12/23/2012. 11.2 oz bottle into a pilsner glass.
A: Pours a medium straw color with great clarity. The head is a two finger white color with nice retention. The head retains more strongly away from the glass, creating a ’floater’...usually a sign of a hoppy beer. Intrigued!
S: Very well hopped, which I always like. Tons of grassy, zesty noble hops overpower - in a good way - the pale malts.
T: Light malt sweetness gives way to pure grassy hop goodness. Simple, but it works here. The only real complaint I have is that the finish isn’t quite as balanced as I like. As such, it’s a bit less drinkable than it could be. Having said that, it grows on me.
M: The carbonation grants this a coarse, tingly sensation on the palate. It’s not entirely bone dry on the finish, either. If anything, it’s more a pils to savor, rather than one to chug.
O: I feel that pilsners - when they’re done well - provide a great example of simple refreshment in lieu of water. This is one I feel that stacks up nicely. It strikes a middle ground between the intensity of Prima Pils and the delicacy of Pilsner Urquell.

C’est une de mes pils favorites. Elle a une robe claire, une mousse légère. Elle a comme toute bonne pils, un équilibre entre le malt et le houblon. Le mieux est de la boire sur une terasse. Ce n’est que du bonheur.

4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pint bottle with date code of 7164 which means (unless I am mistaken, PLEASE let me be mistaken) this beer was bottled sometime in April 2014.
That’s right. Triangle Wine of Morrisville, N.C. sold me a beer that’s almost nine months old at full price. Well this happens with imports but hopefully not generally to this extent.
Into a Sam Smith Nonic!
A: Light brassy gold color with turbulent carbonation producing a prodigious rocky head of tight white. Excellent retention and lacing
S: Grassy hops on the front of the nose, with a wisp of white bread following. Great smell.
T: Much like the nose, the taste hits the tongue with grassy straw hop notes. Finishes with a balance of bready notes of more sourdough than white. Pretty dry. Delicious.
M: These people are the masters of body, carbonation and mouthfeel. Light silky body with relentless but gentle carbonation. The mouthfeel of this is directly on par with champagne. Excellent.
O: The embodiment of elegance in a beer. Simple, expertly executed and a hallmark of the style.
NOTE: If anyone notices that I have misread the date code please let me know and I will immediately retract my comment.
This beer is still excellent regardless of when it was bottled.

light yellow/gold with frothy white head. Honey-like aroma with light herbal notes. Malty with a hint of beeswax. Light bodied, crisp with a decent hop bitterness. Well balanced and refreshing. Outstanding Pilsner.

500ml bottle. 07.10.15. Pours a straw colour with a frothy white head and some delicate lace. Aroma of straw, grain, bread and sulphur. Mild sweetness and gentle bitterness. Light bodied, smooth, sticky mouthfeel and a semi dry finish. A pretty decent pilsner from a brewer better known for it’s wheat beers. 7.

Very mild and easy to drink. Would be good just about anytime. Lemony, bitter hop profile. Good thirst quencher without being too filling.
