3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a cloudy golden color. The head is a two finger white shade. Texturing is more frothy than creamy, with a floater in the middle suggesting a good hop profile. Plenty of lacing is left on the glass, too, also suggesting a good hop profile.
S: This seems to be loaded with a few ’Merican hops, which is a welcoming presence. They provide notes of grapefruit, apricot, and grass. There also seems to be a vegetal note hidden in there that I don’t like too much - evoking green bell peppers. Otherwise, solid.
T: It takes a bit of time for the hop profile (and the welcoming bitterness) to hit the palate, but when it does, it introduces notes of apricot, pine, grapefruit, and maybe some nettle. Not much malt presence - a good thing. Only the vegetal hints of bell pepper keep this from being great.
M: This has a crisp bite to it, along with a dry finish. Pleasantly bitter on the palate, too. Moderate carbonation does a good job of quashing any potential for a syrupy texture.
O: A really solid pilsner. The price point ($11/4 pack) only seems cheap in comparison to other Evil Twin brews - taking that out of consideration, this is actually pretty damn expensive. Shame about that price, because this is up there with both Sunshine Pils and Prima Pils in my opinion.
Tap @ Ølhus København, Helsinki, 08/07/17. Pours a clear golden with a small, white head. Aroma is some grain and grass, some citrus. Taste follows along the same lines. Good quaffer, if overpriced. Just as it says on the tin. Steffan (87) - WALES - JUL 9, 2017
Pale amber in colour, smallish head, medium to soft carbonation. Slight bitterness in the hops and medium maltiness, medium body. Refreshing. Excellent subtlety of a great pilsner. Best non Czech or non German pils I’ve ever tried. ebone1988 (1926) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Can from Merchants. Aroma is wonderful, citrus, pine, wheat, floral, slightly earthy, very nice. Appearance is darker golden, off white head, cloudy. Taste is pine, earthy, some malt bitterness, citrus, orange peel, very hoppy, very good. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, pine and malty aftertaste. Overall, it may not be as traditional as you’d like, but damn does it drink nice. Bebum (993) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Medium body, little flavor, refreshing, clean finish.
Bitter, dry, crisp.
Characterless hop flavor.
Refreshing but not much more.

Tap @ Himmergit. Golden amber, not much head. Boiled sweet aroma. Cereal resin flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Not bad for this style of beer.
