2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
33cl bottle. Pale gold colour with decent, dense, white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of sweet grains, corn, vegetables, malt, straw, vegetables and floral. Medium sweetness and light bitterness. Light bodied, soft carbonation and an unappealing, long, sticky sweet finish that refuses to go away. No thanks.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
330 ml bottle at Bologna airport. Appealing look, but nothing else to say. A common lager communicated as a craft beer. Inconsistent foam, watery in the end. Surely a thirst-quencher though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, at Kristiansand Ølfestival. It’s a lightly unclear one, golden in color and topped by a dense, off-white head of two finger size. Pale malts, some citrus and a generic fruityness in the aroma. It’s medium bodied and with a nice carbonation A decent bitterness in the flavor, both initially and in the end, with pale malts in the back. Quite fruity. Medium body and a nice carbonation level. A rather boring one, too much at the malty side. 140823
