Bottle. If you love Pilsner you will love this beer. Me, not so much. Clear gold color with a large head. Bitter grains in both aroma and taste.

DraftDodger (1170) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2016
Copenhagen 6/6 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Some lions, a shield and a crown on the label to signal that we are in good old knightly Germany. Pours clear yellow with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma is quite sharp and a little bit sulfurous with a tinge of smelly socks and moldy gym bag. Light carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is way more balanced than the aroma. Sweet malts followed by nice medium bitterness which lingers in the aftertaste. It does not look or smell very good - but it does taste quite ok. Just like boiled cabbage.

Nurmis (470) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours deep golden with medium white head. Average carbonation. Bready malts and floral hops. Light ot medium bitterness. Light sweetness. Refreshing.

Strykzone (6860) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Clear golden and a lot of carbonation rising rapidly. A white head leaves thick lacing. The aroma is skunk and a bit unpleasant. Fruit under that is fruit cocktail. A little sulfur, too. The flavor also has sulfur along with that fruit. Rich and sweet malts. The flavor is an improvement over the aroma. Spice and some grain. Earth and sugary notes. Sugary spiciness to the finish. I ended up liking this. Appearance and aroma will pull my score down.

Abijen (2518) - s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2016
Goud helder bier met een goede witte schuim kraag. Ruikt hop, fruitig. Iets te fruitig. Smaakt als een pilsner, muf, hop.

Classic pils - clean and crisp, slight bread and perfume in the nose. Slightly sweet and ever so slightly bitter flavor.

DavidAust (213) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2016
500ml bottle. Straw gold. Well carbonated, good crisp clean mouthfeel and palate. Good for the style - just not my favourite style. But for a hot day or BBQ with mild seafoods - all good.
