3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle brown, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours nice golden, perfectly clear body texture, carbonation of the body is weak, head is initially medium, quickly decreasing to small, foamy to frothy and quite firm as it lasts in a small size for a long time. There are quite nice lacing traces.
Aroma: Nice deep malty aroma, accents of raw and slightly toasted malt, notes of juice and fresh mead, honey, gentle notes of citrusy, orangy oriented and truffle or coocoo candy like hoppy top of quite noble quality, slightly winy, white wine grapes, perfume accents of hops.
Flavour: The perfumy and slighty alcoholic at front, in its hoppy profile reminding good quality Polish Premium Lagers, nice honest, sweety malty background with whipped cream, milk, again what is strickingly interesting is its untypical hoppy profile as for a Pilsener, it’s totally different from a Classic German Pilsener hoppy profile. Finish duration is medium.
Palate: Body is light, texture is rather wattery, carbonation on palate is moderate, finish feel is slighty astringent and slighty alcoholic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Vienna, 2006. Bright, golden yellow. Not so large head. Good malt aroma, slightly sweet, with hops as well. Rather complicated flavor. Strong hops and pretty strong malt. A tinge of sweetness more than balanced by hop bitterness. Medium body, high carbonation. Flavors of grass, fruit. Slightly bitter and also malty finish. Good beer, not overly exciting, but few faults.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(swing top bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a medium sized foamy white head. Fresh aroma: slightly sweet grainy malty nose with a touch of citrus and herbal hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Soft malty and subtle fruity base with a light but aromatic hops-character; a bit slim but clean and refreshing fruity and herbal hoppy finish. Nice one (05.08.08).
