2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A vile cheesy, pea soup is growing underneath the hop-covered haystack...A nonetheless pleasant hop bitterness manages to thwart the oddness and is lifted by a creamy malt tonus...Working out in the sun can be rejuvenating, but after a while strange emanations start to appear...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Floral hops with vegetal undertones. Clear, golden blond with lasting white coverof head and nice bubbly carbonation. Hay, grassy hops, strong pils malt character with restrained bitterness. Refreshingly crisp palate and nice strong carbonation. Bottle enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear blonde, low carbonation, honest white head. Aroma would gain from having more malt goodness. Something like grassy corn disturbs the balance a good bit. Palate is very dry, salty, once again not quite malty enough. Rural field and hay flavours. Somehow astringent cement like finish. It’s not as bad as I make it sound though.. Highly carbonated, sharp thin-medium body.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Pale golden, brief head. Sweet and malty with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Fairly low bitterness. Fairly well made, but unadventurous.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light gold in colour, pours with a large head of foam (that disappears quickly). Aromas are yeasty and metallic with some spice. Flavours are soft buttery malts with grain and a hoppy dry metallic finish that ebbs away pretty quickly. Still, it went down well so it can’t be too bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden. Malty aroma with cocoa notes and some nuttiness. Initially hoppy but finishes with a question mark. It started out good but died somehow. Like the first half of Sweden-Italy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Really nice spicy lager. A hoppiness that reminds of bohemian pilsners. Taste is a bit bland, the body a bit watery. But quite okay for a lager

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (500ml). Odd aroma - malty but with an curious whiff reminiscent of composting grass. Overall, pretty soft and malty. So-so.
