Cask at Zeitgeist @ The Jolly Gardener. Aroma of grass, spice, malt and metal. Pours a golden coloured beer with a small white head and some carbonation. Taste is grassy with vanilla has a tangy sweet after taste. OK, but not all that.

0.5l can. Pours a clear golden with no head. Aroma is weird. It’s a mix of malt and hops, but reminds me of plastic. Not bad, just weird. Palate is fizzy and watery, but a little oily. The taste is very bitter, but also has a weird flavour to it, that would I put with the weird plastic flavour. I wonder if this is a bad batch? It went away after a few sips though, and the remaining flavour was quite nice.

Gold color with nice white head. Good sweet malt with a touch of hops on the nose and flavor. Not bad.

Miksu (5052) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2008
Draught at Uusi Apteekki, Turku. Golden color with creamy head. Sweetish, very malty aroma with some herbal hops. Fairly bitter and strongly malty flavor with grapefruity and herbal hops, perhaps a buttery note too. Strongly carbonated. Used to be a personal favourite but wasn’t so tasty this time.

Bottle from BevMo. Medium golden in color upon pouring. Slightly sweet fruity flavor with a bit of graininess. Fairly grainy with a little bit of a sweet flavor to it. The finish is pretty bitter.

Roli (406) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2008
500ml can. Small white head with blonde color. Grassy, bland and very watery. Maybe the bottled one is better, but the one I had barely tasted something...

Boa Pilsen. Coloração dourado, espuma branca e de boa formação. Cheiro de cereais e malte - bom. Amarga - bom equilíbrio. Leve especiarias. Retrogosto amargo, leve com boa drincabilidade.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Pours a bright, clear gold with some very attractive carbonation in the body and a decent snow white head. Some very nice white lacing as the glass gets lower. The aroma is of mostly straw with a bit of citrus, light bitter hops and mild malt sweetness. The flavor is classic pilsener - straw and grass with a clean, mild, and refreshing hop bite. There is also a hint of strange, earthy citrus in the flavor. The mouthfeel is light and foamy with a bit slight tingle of carbonation, very nicely balanced with the flavor. Overall a very solid brew (for a guy who enjoys a good pilsener), possibly my favorite example of the style.
