3.26/5  rDev n/a
look: 2.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Comes in a posh 330mL champagne style bottle. BB date 3 months past, but lets see how it goes.

A - Golden, clear, purs thin white head that fades to a thin lacing very quickly

S - Grassy herbal odours of a typical pilsener, slight malt. I've got a blocked nose at the mo so aroma may be stronger than Im picking up

T - Slightly sweet fruity flavours (pineapple) with a malt backbone. The noble hop bitterness is present, but slightly more reserved than a typical pilsener.

M - Crisp, moderate carbonation and nice medium body. Goes down well.

O - I liked it, the bitterness wasn't as obvious as other pilseners, but the malty backbone and fruity tinge and crispness made this a great friday after work beer. Almost like a lager.

Pours amber with a small, fading head.
Nose shows sweet clean malt, grassy, spicy hops and faint vegetal notes.
Flavours are similarly plain, with spicy hops and sweet light malt the main characters, along with some cardboard notes.
Body is suitably light.
