4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 16.11.2012, tap @ the Brewhouse / Restaurant:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head, very hazy. Aroma is slightly fruity, light malts, grain, hops, caramel, hay and grass. Taste is slightly dry, still a little sweet, light malts, hops, grain, hay, yeast, grass and caramel. Medium bitterness. Love this one, very quenching! In fact it takes me back to having an ultra-fresh, unfiltered and unpasteurized pilsner in Prague. I’m not really a big fan of lager beers, and especially not industry beers. I had absolutely NO expectations to this beer what so ever, so it totally blew my mind.
(This rating was based on our first visit. The second time the beer was extremely muddy, and almost flat. But the aroma and taste was almost as good. Based on my experience, and the other three ratings before me, it seems like they need better quality control. At it’s best, this beer is world class when it comes to style. But it’s still very good when it’s not at it’s best.)

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Draught at the brewpub. No head. light amber. Lager-like nose with minimal fruit esters. Almost no carbonation and no body. Unmalted cereals? The hops are probably there but leave no bitterness. I can appreciate a good lager on a summer day and I’ve tried a few but this is as poorly done as possible without being infected. Maybe it would benefit from further fermentation and storage.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brew pub. Supposedly 3.5% ABV (but I suspect it is really more like around 4.5%) Hazy golden with a decent head. Grainy and spicy aroma. Good bitterness blending with grainy and spicy flavours. Medium body. Almost like a kellerbier, and definitely something special on the beer desert island of Madeira.
