Prima pilsner. Het bier is sinds kort in de retail verkrijgbaar. Geen idee of het marketingverhaal erachter op waarheid of op fantasie gebaseerd is, maar Swinckels drinkt lekker weg, en is goed op smaak voor een pilsner. Is zeker voor herhaling vatbaar.

Very nice, refreshing beer with just the right amount of fizz and delicious hops. I had it bottled and on draft and enjoyed it both times. Special mention for the beautiful flute it was served in. I will have many more.

Glas gedeeld door Inoven. Het is een heerlijk pilsner van de tap. Goud van kleur, volle schuimkraag en een lekker kruidige smaak, de nasmaak is snel weg.

Fresh and not pasteurized. Bottle design is very nice. Tastes like a regular pilsner, only bit softer and more bitter. Nice

11.2 ounce bottle - Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia. A fancy, albeit it clear bottle design.

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden body with a full inch of snow white suds. Thin layers of lacing on the descent.

Smell: Smells skunky immediately upon opening the bottle, though not overpowering, as it is in some cases. Given a moment to waft away, it reveals a faintly sweetish pils malt scent with wee notes of spice and citrus.

Taste: Lightly sweet, softly grainy pilsner maltiness. A few pleasant drops of honey water. Low lemony citrus quality. A hint of spicy, bitter herbs accompanied by some bitterness to balance. Soft, subtle, drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Moderate carbonation.

Overall: A beer that seems it’d be far, far better fresh at its source and preferably on tap, as these clear, ornate bottles won’t properly protect its contents within for long journeys.

Smell of malt and some herbs. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma of malt, citrus and some hoppiness. Aftertaste is sugary and slightly fruity. Lively carbonation.
