330 ml bottle bought at Wiselect’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during The 14th Hong Kong Food Festival.
Looks: Clear golden colour; Less than one-quarter finger head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Fair sticky lacing and barely notable slight carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant Pils malt, with candied fruits, lychee, rambutan, light grapefruits, wood, honey, floral, light spices, bread, lemon and grass.
Taste: Close to medium sweet Pils malt, with lychee, grapefruits, tropical fruits, strong floral, honey, light biscuits, strong lemon, strong bitter hops and sharp grass.
Body: Close to light body. Dry and slick palate.
Mouth Feel: Quite solid Pils maltyness in a thin but slick background. Strong fruity hops dominates as in lychee, strong tropical fruits and fair grapefruits. Strong floral with honey-ish sweetness, light bready with strong lemon to round. Very nice!
Hoppiness: Candied fruits, lychee, rambutan, light grapefruits, wood, floral, spices, lemon and grass in nose. Lychee, grapefruits, tropical fruits, strong floral, strong lemon and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, high astringent sweet-bitter finish.
After Taste: Dry. Fruity, grassy and strong bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one is much more than a Pale Lager - a dry-hopped Pilsener to be precise, with solid Pils maltyness, very strong hoppiness in nice sweet tropical fruit aroma and taste, and topped with strong German hop bitterness. Only a lack of carbo holds it back somewhat but overall, a well-interpreted, very hoppy and sessionable Pils. Recommended!
Malty as required by the style but balanced with hops giving extra aroma to the overall impression. Very special. VamboladeTolly (1937) - Tartu, ESTONIA - APR 12, 2016

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2016 Clear golden with a small white and bubbly head. Aroma is floral, fruity and malty, very rich for a lager. Taste is where you understand that this is not an industrial lager: malts, hints of lemon, dry hops. Medium bitter, rich, medium bodied. A pretty good lager. hughhaug (13) - West Bromwich, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2016

Pleasant fruity light hops initially, but a nice light bready graininess too - real barley there. Taste is amazingly soapy, in a bad way, and extremely medicinal. Otherwise watery palate, and the chemicals and soap make it harsh. Finish messy, a hodge-podge of beer ingredients, ulimately ill-integrated and unsatisfying. Don’t like so much soap.
Bottled. A hazy yellow beer with a beige head. Thenaroma has notes of malt, straw, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, and hops, leading to a bitter finish.
