2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale golden colour with an off-white head of foam. Good malt presence. Fruity, sweet and lightly spiced. Aroma mirrors taste. However, the carbonation and heavy metallic tone to it ruin this ale somewhat. Itís also a little on the sour-dry side. Not really refreshing.

[ bottle ][ 1.5oz ][ @Tasting ][ $? ][ mini snifter ][ 05.01.16 ]
effervescent gold, thin white head, decent lacing. Stingingly sweet, cloying corn nose, lightly metallic. Foamy front palate, sticky sweet, fizzy gum notes, burnt and bright competing. Clinging sweetness eats at enamel.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly grainys and sugary sweetish aroma, light fruitiness and light - some alcohol. Body is medium, malty - lightly grainy and sugary sweetish flavor, faint fruitiness and light - some alcohol. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish, faint fruitiness and some alcohol. Sugary sweetish strong lager, no hoppyness Ė too sweet for me. Reminds me of those Baltic/East European booze lagers.
