3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little surprised to see this today at the COOP... Picked up a few bottles and am getting to one while taking care of some business for tomorrow...
Poured into my thin tulip.. clear golden.. small bubble white head rises up and drops pretty quickly but the cap leaves nice drapes of lacing.
Nose shows clean pale malt with just enough hoppiness to balance.. smells fantastic.
Good balanced bitterness that just allows a subtle pale malt sweetness to get interesting... Hop flavors are sorta grassy and inviting.. This is a really well done brew.. Perfect for an evening barbecue..
Light/medium body ... good bubble.. nicely drinkable..

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 1.2017. Pale straw colour with minimal haze and off-white, slightly creamy foam. The head drops fast, leaving a film and very little lace. The nose strikes at first as an abundantly hopped lager, not unlike so many others with lots of straw - but then after it’s been sitting for some minutes a more interesting character starts to reveal itselft. The aroma is somewhat milky or creamy, and also spicy and herbal - a curious mix. It tastes of straw, indistinct herbs and some peachy fruity notes with perhaps a drop of citrus and a tiny bit of honey sweetness. Smooth soft texture with very thin but active carbonation and herbal bitter finish. It’s not bad but I would (knowing I shouldn’t) probably make less of it without the accompanying texts.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not your typical lager. Immediate hoppy bitterness attacks the senses but mellows quickly.

Not a bad lager, but not exceptional either. Not especially malty..............

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours a copper color lager. All grains and herbs on the nose. Soft grainy, bready palate, with a lack of hops or bitter finish. Overall, quite different from a Bo Pilsner, but lacks structure for my taste.

355 ml bottle, as Anchor California Lager, from Fakta, Denmark. ABV is 4.9%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Sweetish aroma of malts and floral, herbal and fruity hops. The flavour is medium dry, well hopped throughout, with a fairly bitter aftertaste. A well made lager - simple, but decent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: deep honey gold with a finger of white head and minimal lacing. Aroma: grainy, with a bit of biscuit, then light honey and some grassy, herbal notes. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with the addition of a bit of lemon. Finish: clean and crisp, with a bit of herbal hop character lasting longer than expected. Notes: I love a good lager, so I was expecting a lot. For me, it was just meh. Bottle from Total Wine & More, McLean, Virginia.
