A very nice Pilsner. Aroma is pure Pilsner, which surprised me because it seems to be a relatively ’cheap’ beer, I think I paid $9 for 1.3l. The flavour isn’t quite as deep as the aroma but makes up for its *slight* lack of depth with a very refreshing clean crispness. I think I’m going to be seeing more of this.
On tap at Sprig and Fern, Hardy St. Pours pale and a bit lifeless. Peach, lemon, little bitterness, quite sharp. Quite coarse texture. Not enough bitterness to deserve the pilsener tag in my opinion, with a fairly unimpressive pale lager a better description. Not great. 3fourths (9349) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 A rough beer that comes across as a pretender. Saccharine / rice cake and barley husk pale malt nose with little to no hop aroma and an off-putting notebook paper staleness. Mild notes of salty brine. Fizzy carbonation, rough and grating malt. Lack of esters shows it’s actually bottom-fermented but I would guess it only lagered for 2-3 weeks given it’s coarseness. Sweet and sour rice cake pale malt finish. Filtered gold with a short head. From draft. Ungstrup (37867) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2012
Bottled. A hazy yellow beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of straw and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and malt, leading to a bitter finish. beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 27, 2012
Clear straw colour with mid sized white head. Corn strach aroma. Very malt driven, mild hop flavour with smokey aftertaste.
