1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle - thanks VastActive and the crowd from Hel!
Simple grainy aroma. Simple papery pale lager taste. Dull, but competently brewed. Aroma gets way more papery quite quickly, a bit too starchy too.

33 cl bottle @ VastActiv, BBE 17.08.2014
Aroma is musty with wet paper and some grain. Also hints of honey. Flavour has grass, some mint, grain and hints of malt. Feels a bit leathery. Not as bad as I expected, got worse at the end of the glass though.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poura a clear golden color, topped with decent white head that completely disappears in a moment.
There is a very mild malty aroma and slight dust. Not much there.
The taste is sweet, light and slightly cardboardy, but it has some nicely bitter finish and sweet aftertaste.
