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 itd be far, far better fresh at its source and preferably on tap, as these clear, ornate bottles wont 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.

Bottle at a mexican restaurant, happy to see something else than Corona and Salitos Tequila. Poured into its original glass. Nice golden yellow colour with two fingers of white thick head on top of it. Lots of activity in the glass. Looks promising. Aroma of hops, nothing to write back home too though. Taste is much beter, nice bitterness even from the begining with lots of hops. Thin to medium on the body, average carbonation. After it was brought to my table, I checked for the brewer here, and when I saw Bavaria, in combination with the clear glass bottle, I was afraid it would be another boring pils, but I was pleasantly surprised. Quite good.
