500ml brown bottle. Pours golden, good sized creamy white head. Aroma is a bit dusty, some soft floral hops. Nice pils malt flavour with hay notes with a light grassy finish. Soft carbonation, light bodied.

From Mar 2008

I had this at the Old Chicago.

It poured a clear gold with a 1 finger head of foam that receded quickly to just some spotting.

The smell was of light malty notes and a good presence of spicy hops.

The taste was pretty nice. Some sweet malt, bread, grain, that put together, placed it on the sweet side but there was some decent hop character to balance out the sweetness and made it pretty darned drinkable. It had a light mouthfeel and it finished fairly crisp and dry. I think this would make a very good beer to session on.

Pours clear golden with stable white foamy head. Crisp, bready maltiness & typical saaz hop character with spicy, earthy, floral notes & long, rounded bitter finish. Light body, smooth texture, medium carbonation. Refreshing after run.

Kita (2267) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 26, 2017
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear pale golden color with medium frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is grainy, grassy, herbal and a bit dusty. Taste starts light sweet grainy and citrussy, following is grassy, chalky and papery, mouthfeel is dry, while finish is moderate bitter. Light to medium body, thin creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Bitter, but boring...

Bottle, 0.5l. Clear golden pour, two finger soapy white head. Medium retention, small amount of lacing. Pleasantly fresh nose, grainy, lots of hay notes, very nice grassy character.

Thin to medium body, medium carbonation. Light texture, fizzy mouthfeel. Very easy drinking, crisp and clean. Nicely balanced bittersweet taste. Aroma is quite grainy, hay, grassy hops. Peppery. Somewhat dusty. Some vague tart notes. Mildly bitter finish, medium lasting.

Overall, quite good. Refreshing and nicely balanced pilsner. Drinkable and refreshing.
