A mass-market brewery simply could not make a beer like this. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and bursting with flavor, it has phenomenal body and freshness. Hazy to the eye, and full on the palate. 6 week brewing time. Barley, yeast, hops and water.

500ml bottle (SIP, Tallinn)
Pleasant hazy gold, small tight head. Pleasant light grainy aroma, some soft grassy hopping. Taste also pleasantly grainy, but alas just a little papery. Palate quite full and smooth from being unfiltered, but with crisp carbonation. I can get past the paperiness quite easily, this is a very pleasant refreshing unfiltered lager. I’d tone down the carbonation half a notch though.

0,5l Flasche. Tolles Hopfen Bouquet mit Hefe Noten. Hellgebl naturtrübes Bier mit feinem Schaum. Antrunk bitter frisch. Für ein Lager sehr vollmundig mit langem hefigem Abgang.

Piwo ze srednia pianka, metnym kolorem, cytrusowe i limonkowe. Lekka kwaskowosc, przyjemnie orzezwiajace. Lekkie ale i smaczne nawet. Zakonczenie to jablko z gruszka, wyczuwalny jakby siano i sloma w zxapachu przez caly czas

weordie (776) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2015
Pours golden with a thick, soapy foam head. Aroma is biscuit, lemongrass and corn. Quite a foamy mouthfeel. Taste is a dulled lemon, some medicinal alcohol wipes, doughy with a light bitter finish. Actually it’s rather pleasant.

Värvuselt ähmane kollane valge vahuga, lõhn suhteliselt vesine tunda linnaseid ja pärmi, maitselt vesine ja pärmine. Täiesti joodav laager.

Saeglopur (1663) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 2, 2015
Draught at Ottakringer Braukulturwochen, Vienna, shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Yellow, hazy body, with a big, creamy, lacing, white head.
Light aroma of grass, flowers, slight citrus, sweet malts.
Tastes of grass, flowers, citrus, some herbs, some sweet malts.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a lively carbonaton.
Finishes medium bitter, grassy, floral, a bit zesty.

Nice. The nose is too light, but the taste is good, clean, fresh and with nice floral notes. Nothing special at all, but a refreshing Helles, perfect for summer.
