2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Medium white head. Clear pale yellow body with light carbonation.
Strawy buttery aroma with grain notes. Sweetish buttery caramel
taste. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Sweetish papery caramel
aftertaste with dusty buttery wet straw notes. Vague acidity in
background. When you analyze it it sounds awful. When you just drink
it it’s kind of ok. Didn’t finish it. (0.5l bottle, gift from wife.)

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy yellow, only white lacing. Aroma is of malt, hay, wet bread and sulphur or eggs. Taste medium sweet malt, some bread, bit of cardboard, hay, cooked veggies, yeast and at the start also some sulphur (less than in the nose) although it does mellow out at the middle of the glass. Light bodied.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Hazy straw colored liquid with a medium thick white head. A bit sweet and dry aroma of grains, spicy yeast phenol and dough, wheat, some spicy hops and hints of lemon. Increased levels of cooked vegetables/DMS as it gets warmer. Light bodied grainy palate with high carbonation. Flavor has citrus, grains, dough, wheat. Finish has DMS and some banana(!). Dry aftertaste, with a grainy texture and some earthy notes and paper glue at low levels. The unfiltered yeast does a fairly good job in hiding off flavors initially in the first pour.
