2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Somewhat odd aroma, suprised because the head was pretty well lasting. Taste is like a watery hoppy brew with a slight tartness to the hops in the beer. Decent brew for a hot day, but it’s starting to cool down, so forget about this one for 6 months.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 Hoppy aroma with floral notes. Luckily, no skunkiness at all. Bready, hoppy taste with some flowery notes, but a harsh bitterness in the finish. If it weren´t for the strange bitterness, this beer would be an excellent Pilsner.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
1Pt. 6.3 fl. oz. Bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden yellow. A nice head initially formed then fell quickly to nothing. Aroma, well not much, hints of pale malts, some hot water bottle, and some very very metallic skunkiness. Flavor is mild, very dry, crisp, light malt, and somewhat of a dry bitter finish. Not bad. Mouth feel thin and tended to leave my mouth parched. Drinkability Low. Very very dry.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden body with a thin white head of small bubbles. That damn cheese smell that I can’t get over is still there. But I did get some faint sweet malts too. The cheesiness didnt persist in the taste, thankfully. Bitter, floral taste with a kick of sweet before a bitter finish. I am not sure if this beer should taste and smell like this, but I will for sure have to get it on tap to make sure. Overall, not too bad though.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a clear gold with a big white, creamy head. Powerfull horsey, floral, wet grass aroma wafts from the glass. Up close this turns into more complex floral and citrus notes with musty malts and some light caramel. The flavour carries through with the malt tones, finishing with a toasty, grainy note. Some pronounced buttery notes (brown butter) with nutty undertones also present with the herbaceous hop flavour in the middle. The bitterness is well balanced, and a good full mouthfeel and long palate. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden colored, big white lasting foam. Nice lace in glass. Good hoppy pils aroma, notes of caramel sweetness in there too. Mild sweetness comes up also in flavor, although ending is well hopped and dry. Good medium body, maybe some carbonation wouldn’t harm. About the 100th time that I have this, still I find something new every time. Excellent pilsner, something that other pils can be compared.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A fairly strong floral hop aroma is present. Pours to a golden color with a creamy white head, with moderate head retention. Has a bit of a sweet-malty flavor before the hops come charging in to dominate the flavor. Medium-light body. A lingering, bitter hop finish.
