Hazy blond color; giant creamy head. Too light aroma, while the taste is much better, with a good malt line and a good (strong and partially aromatic) hopping. Long final as well. hotstuff (5139) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Bottle. Poured a medium sizedwhite head that was foamy with fine-medium sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The body was lightly carbonated and hazy with a pale yellow hue. The aroma was malty, sweet, fruity notes and somewhat grassy. The flavor was a little acidic tasting, somewhat bitter and some hoppiness. The mouthfeel was tingly. This beer’s lacing was fair. Not a beer that did a whole lot for me asfaras taste goes. Ungstrup (37208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 22, 2004
A very sweet aroma eminates from this beer with notes of fruit, berries, elderflower, and yeast. The color is orange and it has a huge head. The flavor is of lemon, elderflowers, honey, lemongrass, fresh hops, and with a rather bitter dry finish. ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - APR 7, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2005 33 cl bottle w/ swing-top cap; served in Krombacher flute.
Hazy golden colour; impressive head. Nice, juicy hop aroma. Full, extremely well-hopped and fresh taste w/ a long, firm finish. Very good drinkability. estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Golden body, medium head, mild German hops in the nose. Herbal flavor, with some finishing bitterness. Some hints of bready malt. Twice as expensive as Prima Pils, and not as complex or flavorful.

Pours with a two-finger white head that goes quickly and leaves a good lace. Light cloudy amber color. Good carbonation. Nose is non-existant. Starts sweet and finishes with a late hoppy kick. Light-medium bodied. $10 for a 2-pack of 330s with a glass.

Hazy, lemon meringue yellow, beautiful head and lace. Aroma dripping with saaz, floral and maybe some earthy hop aromas. Medium-light bodied, excellent pale/pilsner malts, slightly sweet matching and balancing the sharp but scrumpous hops that linger forever. Immensly flavorful for a pils, world class and the only thing approaching is prima IMHO. muzzlehatch (4950) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2004
UPDATED: APR 14, 2005 March 04: 33 cl bottle, from the gorgeous gift pack with Robertus (why can’t I get this in VT). Cloudy light golden, big soft fragile head, beautiful snowflake lacing in the glass. Very fresh, malty-grassy nose, nothing different really -- just archetypally good. Great flavor balance, with grassy fresh goodness, some light bready maltiness, and a powerful but not overbearing cedary hoppiness to finish; hints of black or raspberry I think as well. This is a very subtle refresher and probably won’t blow away the hopmeisters out there; I’m glad I have a 2nd one to try, as I wouldn’t be surprised to find that I’m underrating it. Wonderful. 7/5/8/5/17 4.2

April 2005 miraculously overflowing mellifluous floral honeysuckle freshest cut grass vanilla and subtle caramel in the nose...ending bitterness nearly consumes soft sweetness of the body, smoothness becomes rough....the best, the best.
Straw gold in colour with a delicate, offwhite head. Hops and malt roll around together on a freshly cut field of grass with hops winning out on the nose. First tastes illicit flavours of fresh bread, shortbread biscuit and ripe tree fruit followed by a delightful, balancing bitterness and warming alcohol. A full-bodied treat for the palate. The finish is dry and refreshing. beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2004
Well when I see a beer like this it automatically reminds me of too many of the pale swill that Molbatts foists on us here in Canada. Then a second longer look shows a greater clarity and depth of colour. Also, a wonderful floral, bready, piney, hoppy aroma belies my initial hasty visual appraisal. I'm drawn in to a smooth, slightly sweet turning lingeringly gently bitter pilsener. Really enjoyable.
