3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2016 Draught at Akkurat, 11/28/16.
Massive, massive amount of thick, incredibly well-retained, white head tops a lime-tinted, brass-gold body with a surprising amount of haze for a "filtered" product. Probably not filtered and probably the zwickel pils, but it’s listed as the pils on their board. Anyhow, not too important.
The nose is full of strong floral notes; fresh and botanical, with black pepper and tons of well-attenuated honey. Light lavender, even. Nelson who tried it remarked it was too soapy in the nose and while I hear that a lot, I never really get it. Perhaps that’s just a low perception of alkaloids for my palate? No idea. Anyways, I loved it and despite the haze, it seemed clean. No yeastiness or flaws.
In the mouth it’s very carbonated, malty and rich but decidedly well-attenuated with strong minerality on the end (sourdough and copper!). Hugely floral, with zesty lemon and black pepper-like hop notes, as well. Bitterness is pleasing and perhaps a bit strong, making it a bit much for its sessionable strength, but it’s not resinous or sour and it’s certainly delightful when you’re only having one glass of it.

Soft and gentle carbonated, medium bodied, smooth and crisp mouthfeel. Floral bitter taste, pleasantly grassy, butterscotch and white bread. Very drinkable!

Notevole al baso con note malate e floreali, di giusto corpo, in bocca é piena ed equilibrata con un finale gradevolmente luppolato. Ottima.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lasting light beige head. Tiny clowdiness in a light golden beer. Almost no aroma just a hint of pils malts. Sparkling and malty taste with a medium bitterness. Big drinkabillity.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Akkurat. Clear golden with a medium fully lasting white head and little lacing. Aroma is of cereals with a nice light sweetness, massive fresh grass presence and citrus notes. Taste is slightly sweet with fresh cereals and grass, light citrus and light bitterness. Light to medium body, but never thin. Pinpoint carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel. Crisp and clean. Extremely tasty with a nice depth for the stye. Amazingly drinkable and quenching. Awesome Pils! It wasn’t out of place along the great lambics with drank all night.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Akkurat. Clear blond pour with rich slab of frothy white head. Aroma is really perfumy, super floral, something like lavender, soft bready grainy notes, light dusty hop. Taste is as floral, lavender, light honey maltiness, soft bready malt, pretty malt forward for a pils, but clean while keeping a really nice level of complexity. Palate is light, with just right carbonation, light and fluffy. Really tasty.
