2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Grainy cereal malts with some light cabbagey DMS and mild herbal hops. Clear golden blonde body with a light cover of white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Grainy pils malt flavour with light finishing bitterness. Light body is somewhat watery with moderate carbonation that doesn’t last well. Sampled at the brewpub with Oakes, Rastacouere and Ungstrup.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden colour. Fresh bready malt aroma. Flavour is also of bready malt, but is less pronounced. Light character. A very simple beer, but no particular flaws.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2009 The Lure:
Grainy malt sweetness is helped by herbal hops. This smells quite clean and crisp.
Affable yet delicate herbal hops and their firm peppery bitterness. A little hay and grass blades are scattered all around, drying in the sun. Indeed, pretty dry in the end, with that forced carbonation intensity peering through intensely.
Loud laughter and spilled glasses. Simple merriment.
