2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bottle into a tall flute. Golden to orange color and transparent. A thick, 2 inch white head formed and held. The head reminds me of a good pilsner pour.
Smells of light fruit, ripe pear. It really smells like a pils.
Well, as advertised; it tastes bitter. Bitter from beginning to end. Unfortunately that is all there is to it.
Lots of bubbles. Light bodied. It would be easier to drink without all the carbonation.
I applaud Anchor for trying this old technique of the "Small Beer" but maybe there is a reason that most breweries do not make the Small Beer anymore? So, I am torn. Does this beer taste like a Small Beer should or not? I do not know since this is the first one I have had. What is curious is that everything but the color says "pilsner", even though it is an ale. For that reason it is worth trying.

From draft, poured a clear golden colour with a white head. Nose of
Malts, cereal, citrus, cardboard, metallic notes, and a weak watery mouthfeel. Just a low abv beer

følge producentens hjemmeside er øllen en bitter, og det er den.
En meget humlet øl, med lav procent og en god eftersmag der er lidt mere blød en selve smagen og et stejf af et eller frugtagtigt.
Er man glad for humlet øl, er denne sagen.

Goud ondoorzichtig bier met een goede witte schuim kraag. Ruikt hop, fruitig en kruidig. Smaakt licht bitter, thee bitter, en hop. Erg saai.

Tap, sample. Fairly hoppy tasting bitter. Feels watery, no surprise given the abv. Ok.

Backlog rating. Bottle from Utobeer, London. It pours a clean golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is grainy, grassy, herbal. Taste is lightly bitter, with notes of herbs, skunky grass, grains, earth. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nothing special really

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Wildeman. A clear looking golden one with a really nice big dense everlasting white head. Mild caramel sweet, hints of apples and malts. Even a little bit of nice grassy hops here. A nice mild aroma. Not to for off like drinking water this. Really lightdrinkable and somewhat refreshing. Thin and let’s admit it, watery in the mouth and it’s gentle on the carbonation. Biscuits and thin malts. A little hint of something fruity also and it ends with cardboard and minerals. That one definitely went away quickly! 25.09.2014
