Pours a finger of head on a clear golden body.
The aroma is lemon and a little metallic.
The taste has a solid lemon bitterness, a bit too much on the metallic bitter side though.
The texture is crisp.
It's fine.

Best before end: 12/31/14.

Pours a light yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, floral, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, floral, and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells great and is easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a light golden amber color with a huge billowy white head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave some light bits of bubbly lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is mostly a mix of a grainy and bready smell with that of some fruity aromas. The fruit aromas are heaviest of a lighter harvest fruit nature consisting of some apple and pear. Along with these smells comes some lighter notes of a caramel and a hint of yeast as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready flavor mixed with a little bit of the lighter fruits that were detected in the nose. As the taste moves forward the fruity tastes fade with a more grainy and haylike taste taking the fruits place. This leads to a drying out of the flavors of the brew and makes for a rather crisp taste. With a touch of an herbal taste coming at the very end, one is left with a crisp and clean flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin with a carbonation level that is average to a bit on the higher side. This feel is fantastic for the crisp and grainy flavors of the brew and makes for one refreshing feel overall.

Overall – This is a very nice and crisp pilsner. Not sure why this in Monday’s choice, but this is certainly a nice brew for a hot summer day.

500ml bottle from Athens, Greece:
Golden straw with a clear body and a thumb sized, foamy white head.

Sweet on the nose with some citrus and a lot of grassyhops. There is some pine and a fresh smelling, lively aroma that is sprinkled with light malts as well.

Grassy hops & some citrus again with touches of pine on the tastebuds but the overriding taste is a lemon citrus one that is incredibly bitter.

Strong carbonation with lots of pine and citrus bitterness, particularly from the lemon. The beer is a crisp and dry one at the end with too much bitterness.

A great start, particularly the aroma and was a beer that I was looking forward to tasting after pouring some out but the taste proved to be far to bitter for my liking and it wasn't a good beer from that point on sadly. There was plenty of carbonation and the beer had a lively feel to it. There was too much lemon bitterness though & the beer was a struggle to finish towards the end.
