Tom303 (66) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Dark amber, lovely sweet malt and fruity aroma with taste to follow and perfect balance of rich bitter sweet flavours. Quite sweet and fruity for a pilsner, but good balance overall pilsners. Really good lager.

50cl bottle thanks to John Brash. Appearance - a darker golden than expected. Decent head retention. Nose - cornflakes with just a hint of green beans. Taste - more green beans and pale malt but just a touch of cardboard, though Iím not sure itís an off taste. Itís more like a note that culminates from the combination of hops and malt. Palate - light to medium bodied with a long dry finish. Overall - not bad, quite solid really.

TomL79 (9) - Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2012 does not count
It has all the characteristics of a good czech lager. That rich, malty, fruity aroma. The dark gold colour. It packs a hell of a punch on the palate and goes down a treat.

Bottle (500ml from Fenwick, Newcastle, UK):
Hoppy to begin with, there is a definite yeast aroma and some lager malts. There is some background fruits and a fair amount of orange coming through with a little spice thrown in for good measure.
A bright orange tainted amber colour that looks quite lively with plenty of bubbles rising to the surface. There is a foamy white head on top that is about two fingers width tall that manages to stay for a good few minutes then only starts to reduce in size as I start to drink it.
Starting out with slightly too much yeast and floral hops. There is a good citrus flavour in there with some orange and spice. I could also detect some biscuit malts and it is all rounded off with a medium amount of bitter.
Medium in body with a citrus tang around the middle and a bitter finish together with mild carbonation for a pilsner making it probably moderate overall.

I wasnít a huge fan to begin with but once it settled down I began to enjoy it, although there was an almost skunky flavour lingering on and again throughout that stopped it from scoring higher. Good but not a memorable one or one that Iíd seek out again.

dantheman278 (1358) - SCOTLAND - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle at Handmade Burger Co. Pale golden, thin white head. Light musty hop nose, some white pepper, wet grass. Soft sweet bready malt, touch of oddly saisony funk, juicy sweet lemon, dry in the finish with some sweaty sourness. Meh.

BeerViking (2071) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2011
500ml bottle, chilled as suggested on the label, pours a hazy orange-gold with a very thin lacy head. A little bread and orange juice on the nose, crisp and hoppy with a malty body eventually coming through, along with a metallic tang. A little toffee and something ever so faintly fruity eventually appearing, along with a sharp bitter finish.

Previously lost notes from GBBF 2006. Golden coloured. Sweet and malty. Smooth feeling in the mouth. Itís good but unremarkable.

MadIndian (2305) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Thanks SJ. Cloudy / orange pour with medium white head. Aroma of mild hop, some caramel and grain. Taste of mild hop, caramel, honey and somenotes of fruit.
