2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle (Stockmann, Riga)
4+ Simple light lagery aroma, touch of huskiness, but pretty bland.
4- Very bold caramelly red, small white head.
5- Simple bready taste, with some bitter huskiness too.
3 Unexceptional palate, pleasant carbonation. Not too thin, not to sweet or heavy. Finish is fairly bitter with noble hops, a touch biting occasionally, assisted by the carbonation. A little grassy perhaps too, and definitely there’s some minerally aspects too.
9 Fairly unexciting, but a fairly full flavoured lager. Would massively benefit from being unfiltered and fresh.

Clear red brown beer. Crisp semi dry palate. Light malt with just enough depth of flavour. Roastiness and bitterness are absent. Small amount of hop fruit. A brief banana note and some minerally zing to finish off. Nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Amber to deep amber coloured, bigger rocky off-white head, sticking to the glass and slowly collapsing; light to moderate roasty and nutty nose with a slght hoppy background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, not really light bodied (for a beer of 11°); slightly lingering hoppy and sweet caramelly finish. Very well balanced and tasty....

Darkish, filtered pour. Very vegetal, string peas, marshmallow aroma. Medium bodied, tons of Munich malts, very super-noble in flavor. This is a boring rating.
