The taste is fine. However, the hops flavor is questionable. Their bitterness is not balanced by another more pleasing flavor. The carbonation is somewhat excessive, but I could see myself drinking this again in the future. If it's around, drink it.

This is maybe the best pilsner I´ve tried. It´s very complex and full of character. Looks golden, not so pale, with a white thick foam head, smells like base malts and is a little hoppy.

Pours a clear yellow with thick, fluffy head.

Smell is clean, crisp and bready with some floral notes.

Taste is malty and bready with a nice floral bitterness and a hint of rye. Very clean, very crisp, and very refreshing.

Mouthfeel is meidum, well carbonated.

Overall, a really nice pilsner, simple and clean.

got a bottle of vague acquaintances to taste at home

popping swing-top cap, thick fat foam, scanty malt aroma, full of sweet and co2 form a solid lager
