   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
jcos (1841) - Maryland, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle on November 8th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a clear gold with some bubbles and faint white head.
Aroma: Aroma of bready malt.
Taste: Light bitterness, some bready malt but not overbearing.
Palate:Light body, faint fizz.

Summary: Taste really passed my expectation of the nose. Often times pilsners have a really poor syrupy stale malty taste. This does not, which I give it credit for. However, it’s still just missing something from being good.

berkshirejohn (6285) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2017
<33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A pale straw pour with a billowing white head that settles quickly; grassy hop aroma; bready body with a light grassy bitterness; and little in the way of a finish except a honeyed sweetness. A drinkable, but very ordinary pils.

Luneylane (101) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JAN 22, 2017
A bottle from Citysuper in the basement of Sogo at Zhongxiao Fuxing, drunk at home. Aroma: grassy hops. Appearance: pale amber, slightly hazy, minimal head. Palate: light-bodied, rather thin texture, soft carbonation. Reassuringly bitter at the end, but doesn’t hang around. Taste: medium bitter, though not sure about ’Hop King’. Hops do predominate. A respectable pilsner-type, but nothing remarkable.

Bamsen78 (5202) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2017
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops, with some malty notes. Sweetish, estery and malty flavour with bitter notes of hops. Estery and mildly bitter aftertaste. Drinkable but nothing special. Remarkably well-preserved despite being 16 months past the BBD.
