1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled, 500ml from East European Supermarket, High St. Banbury. Gold with short white head. Sharpish, grainy, corn like beer with a slightly odd boiled veg note, either that or the Christmas sprouts are repeating. Some sweetness, but basically this is not too good.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear gold with a very tall, slightly off white head..good lacing.
Nice, light straw aroma...
Taste is a light grain with a slight bitter..well balanced malt.
Watery and slightly weak, but a decent all-around taste.
Not bad at all.

Great beer for a lager (I’m not usually a fan). Luksus has a great smell but in my opinion a little too weak. For such a nice smell they should show it off more. Taste is great and palette is perfectly neutral as a lager should be.

Spandert av og delt med Rune under ratesammenkomst hos ham 21 Jun 12. Lys gylden med et høyt luftig skum. Sterk maltaroma. Smaken er søt malt med fruktige innslag. Lite kullsyre. Svakt metallisk ettersmak.

500ml can from my friend Eivind-Arne. Late straw coloured body covered by a loose, white head leaving spotty lacing behind. Aroma of bready malts when opened. Modest flavour of grainy malts added by a note of lemon. Mostly sweet ending. Straight and possible to drink. Shared with Finn and Frau Eva (Tromsø, 21.06.2012).
