Lager beer with a shiny blond colour. It presents the classic profile of Pilsner beer: malty taste, moderate-high bitterness and hoppy aroma with ester notes produced in a well-controlled fermentation.
*The bitterness depends on the alpha acid contentof hops, boiling conditions and other parameters.
