2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rustic hop bitterness under the cap, more like a Northern Brewer. Foams up a lot when poured into my Sam Adams glass. Just a tad darker than the usual pale lager color, while most old-time lagers (Juengling, Sam) tend to be darker. That slight oxidation that comes with most light lagers. Taste is both highly bittered from that "all-purpose hop," and a bit sweet. If they used a truly historical 2-row barley, they might have had to amp it up with adjunct. An interesting beer, but it’s a little too close to a Pabst for me.

VERY pleasantly surprised by this.
Yellow-gold pour with soapy white head. Aroma is floral and noble hops, bread, lemon, sweet malt. Flavor is sweet, fruity, floral, with notes of dried fruit and yeast.

Keg - Owl Sanctuary, Norwich. A deep golden colour with a small but lasting white head. Follows in the typical lager footsteps but there’s a solid malt body - fuller than many of its ilk. Fair length in the finish to boot.

Kyl jää aika sekavaksi. Vähän kitkerä, vei haise millekään. Mitäänsanomaton

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden coloured with Snow White top. Clean yeast aroma. First a hit of carbonation is followed by a smooth, silk palate. Then the bitterness sneaks up on you giving a dry, herbal, piney finish. A pure refreshment.

Pours orange-gold with big white frothy head. Aroma dominated by grain-- bready, malty, with some yeast and citrus as well. Taste is mild, with some of the lagery yeast coming through on the palate. Not sweet, barely any bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and very carbonated. Overall refreshing and enjoyable, but there are better lagers out there for sure; wouldn’t choose this one again.

Clear orange body with a medium to large white head. Aroma is malt, straw, a bit herbal, some fruit. Taste is light bitter, a bit of a hoppy dryness. Soft carbonation.
