kraddel (7713) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2017
Tasted blindly, with Dr. Beer / Served in black glassware. smell has some faded hoparoma, notes of applejuicyness as soon as the scent leaves the nostrils. Like a very , very subtile sour-sweet combination (more tot he sweet side) that leaves lightning fast. Light malts with a touch of caramel. Some yeast, but not much at all. taste is very crisp, def a lager-type beer. Decently bitter, reasonably dry. Perhaps a bit higher in alcohol. Tastes a bit ‘cheap’ though. Unnatural bitterness.

MNAle (173) - Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2017
Poured from 500 ml can, so no light skunkiness. Good aroma typical of pilseners - pils malts, grassy hops, a touch of spice. Clear, bright gold with highly visible bubbles, white, bubbly head, receding quickly. The bright gold, nice level of carb bubbles topped by the white head is a great looking pils. The mouth feel is a bit thin, but that is expected. Initial taste is the spicy/grassy hops, balanced by malty sweetness, with a nice, clean bitter finish with just the right amount of bite. This is a wonderfully refreshing beer. A great pilsner.

0.5l bottle. Clear golden body with a white head. Aroma of grain, hay and bread with some floral notes. Taste of bread, hay and floral hops. Dry and refreshig. The finish is a tiny bit harsh, but all-in-all correct.
