2.53/5 rDev -18.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Appearance: Medium golden in color, with a dense, modest white head, which retains fairly well, with thin, scattered lace, and little carbonation.
Aroma: Moderately sweet, light malt, with almost no hop presence.
Taste: Opens with a caramel corn-like sweetness, which carries throughout the taste. Toward the end of the taste, a moderate metallic hop bitterness appears, which helps to cut the excessive malt sweetness.
Mouth feel: Smooth and fairly full, soft and pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: A rather mediocre example of the Pilsener style. The malt is excessively sweet, rather than offering a crisp tartness. The hop selection could be improved, it would benefit from the use of a hop in the Noble family.
Presentation: Packaged in a 330 ml brown glass Euro-style longneck bottle with a pop-off crown, served in a standard pint tap glass.
Serving type: bottle
