2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pilsner golden colour with a fluffy white head - good retention. Malty aroma with light honey and citrus notes. Fresh, spicy flavour of sweet malt with a crisp finish and a medium bitterness. Slightly oily in texture and light-bodied. Extremely quaffable, I’ll have no problems finishing those swing-top bottles I need for homebrewing!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Markus Madar Cafe Pub in Melk, Austria. This brew pours a clear dark yellow color with a thick off-white head that dimimishes slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit and malt primarily, with a touch of spiced hops. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, wheat and mildly spiced hops. The finish is clean and malty with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent Pilsener overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Swing top bottle. A clear blonde beer with a medium sized and fast disappearing white head. Decent aroma, malty with some grassy hops. The flavour is sweetish, a bit unbalanced, with not many hops, especially for a Pilsner. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, dry medium finish with light to medium bitterness. A bit watery and thin, but not undrinkable.

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.
