hawthorne00 (3802) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle. Deep gold with a white head. Aroma of oranges, grapefruit and grain, some spices. Crackery pale malt, lots of citrus flavours, some spices at the bitter finish. Pretty tasty although the fruity hops are rather more than a garnish.

A floral and fruity pilsen. A real pleasure for a palate. Pale amber color and small head. Really easy to drink because no bitterness or hoppyness on beer.

Did a cat piss ip my nostril overnight? All these Danish beers today are stinky with cat piss. And crystal-malt-like sticky plasticky grains. Pale, brief head, some lacing. Very simple lagery taste, sticky malts, plasticky. Finish does at least have some nice bitter hoppiness, makes the teeth seem metallic. Underwhelming hoppy lager, only vaguely better than tasteless macro shit. Would avoid again.

(Keg at Kuikka, 20140411) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had cats pee, fruitiness and hint of grain. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, mango, grass, malts and bitterness. Afteraste was fruity, sweet and bitter. A yet another Danish so called lager with cats pee aroma but here the taste was rather good.

McNeillR (2296) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2014
Light goldenish with a decent filmy head. Lemony plain crisps nose. Firm peppery sweetness. Flowing quench into a creamy maltiness. Decent peppery carbonation throughout, even 40 minutes later when I was playing catchup. Finish is a lasting lemony earnestness.
We had this last year, Im sure. A brilliant Pilsner by any stretch.

edsspoon (892) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2014
Pours amber and hazy, with a slightly off-white head that remains for quite a while. Lots of citrus and hop aroma, slight maltiness and sweetness. Has a dry, light, spicy and mineral taste with lots of citrus hops.

Hazy amber beer, good white head. Nice hoppy nose - peaches and oranges. Palate starts soft but turns minerally crisp and sharp. Pale malt, somewhat dry and mildly creamy. Fairly light hops and nith that bitter. Peaches, mellow fresh orange and a touch of grass. Finishes crisp and dry. Really nice Pilsner, one day they will all be made this way!
