Slightly hazy, golden colour, white head. Aroma of American hops, citrus, ginger, malts, quite fresh. Fresh malty flavour, light bitter. Malty light bitter finish.
Refreshing pilsener, nicely done.

3/VI/2012 - on tap as "Big Sister One Shot" @ Moeder Lambic, Italian Beer Festival (2012-584)

Clear dark yellow to light orange beer, big creamy off-white head, little stable, pretty adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, peaches, bit of sugar, yeast, yoghurt touch. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: citrus, yeast, some dairy, grassy bitter hops, some grapefruit. Aftertaste: grassy hops, little bitter, not really dry, some spices. Not bad for a Pilsener.

JorisPPattyn (9882) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2012
Draught Towering, yellowish head over fully cloudy yellow to orangeish beer. Quite spiced wholemeal bread, bit peppery-gingery. Strange nose - certainly for a Pilsner??? Again this strange, very peppery, and quite hopped flavour - not C-hops, neither real big EU hops... special. I again seem to get an impression as if ginger was added. Medium bodied, quite slick, and a pappery texture. One that is in fact better than the sum of its parts. Just... a Pilsener, Bohemian at that?

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUN 2, 2012
On tap at Moeder Lambic. Straw body with big head. Sour nose. Taste is hoppy and bitter. Very interesting. Nice texture. Lots of hops in there and packs a punch. Well done.

sebletitje (9912) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2012
Draft @ Moeder Lambic Italian Beer Festival 12. Dore trouble col pais blanc/crmeux. Arme est houblonn et fleuri trs prenant et agrable, lger malt dans le style trs bohmien avec une pointe herbace et fleuri/citronn du Saaz. En bouche, profile pais houblon fleuri et rond de fleur. Le tout procure un profile malt riche et pais tout en conservant cette base de lager un peu beurre entre doux et amertume du houblon. Superbement bien ralise, trs lgre et agrable boire.

25 cl. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas // Italian Beer Festival // I was warned that this is a Bohemian Pilsner when I order this but I went in willingly, knowing what I was getting // (a) hazy amber with a white head // (s) floral hops, touch fruity, lovely fresh lager malt, quite heavy on the floral hops // (t) bitter floral, touch grass, light yeast & minor honey, fruit undercurrent, strong citrus zest finish // (b) easy going, easy to drink // dont know much about the style but I do have an inkling that this is far from traditional but it is a nice one

Buona Pils assaggiata al Pils Pride anche se a confronto di altre Pils gi + affermate ne deve ancora fare di strada...speriamo comunque in una nuova produzione

@ INDIPUBS Beautiful golden color. Honey on the nose, but not too much. A "strange" Pils, not too convincing. Moderate bitterness. These are one shot less "intense" beers produced by this excellent brewery.
