This was brewed by the winner of the pilsener brewing contest, allowed to use the facilities of Brand to make enough beer for 50.000 crates. Poured into a footed pilsener glass. Colour is golden yellow, with a constant stream of bubbles in the body and a soapy, thick white head of two full fingers, with excellent retention. I have it now about ten minutes in the glass and there is still about half a centimeter of foam covering the beer. Very good.
The smell on the other hand is not anything extraordinary, and it could use some more hops for the aroma. Neertheless, above the average pilseners.
The taste is where this one shines, hoppy bitterness straight from the beginning to the very finish, and a long one too.
Medium to thick crisp body and just about the right carbonation.
Overall, a great pilsener, maybe Brand could learn a thing or two from this one.
