In the can @ home. Pours a bit hazy dull yellow appearance with a dissipating off white head. Light veggie, chewy / chalky grains in the aroma with some herbal elements. Rough mouth feel. Very husky and grainy. Mineral notes throughout. Light fruitiness. Twangy finish. A bit of celery. No.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear light gold with a slight chill haze, under a fast-fading thin rocky white head. Nose smells like creamy biscuit and light grassy hops. Flavor is medium-light with a greenish vegetal grassy tone, some wheat, some biscuit malt, and a mild doughy yeastiness. Nice leafy finish,

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Decided to give this a shot, as I enjoyed their dunkel, but man, this is just bad - gritty texture - flavors of raw, husky grains, strong diacetyl (buttered toast), light sourness, peanut skins, boiled root vegetables - syrupy sweetness, bread dough/yeast - just god awful - beer, meet sink.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, dog food, wort), trace hop (flowers), with a strong note of butter/diacetyl, lesser notes of lettuce/celery/zucchini.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean, husky.
Light to medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation.
An absolutely abysmal drain pour. Nose is mostly diacetyl with vegetables as primary accompaniment, with horrifically awful malt...wet dog food and wort and raw grains...just fucking atrocious. As it warmed, it only got worse / more pronounced. Rough and syrupy and dirty and thin and watery and just plain AWFUL. It boggles the mind how a brewer could find this acceptable enough to sell, based on how clearly screwed up it is. This beer would sell well in Lithuania, where this sort of dog food / worty malt character and diacetyl is seemingly beloved.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Lightly hazy yellow colour. Aroma lightly fruity, with hints of banana or vanilla. Quite surprising, since just a little wheat has been used in this one. Taste is mostly malty, but with higher hops bitterness. Body is light. Finish is nicely bitter hoppy. Good summer thirst quencher.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can at brewery tasting. Hazy golden color with medium white head. Malt, wheat, fruity notes in aroma. Taste, starts malty, continues with hint of wheat, some fruitiness and ends with nice hoppy bittersweet finish. Tasty session beer.
