2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sort of APA-ish. Sweet malts and a bit of citric hops. Sticky sweet but balanced by firm bitterness. Kind of overly heavy but pretty decent.

Can. The new version with a "Renewal" sticker. Rich aroma with good hopping. Slightly hazy honey-brown color. Very solid hop hit initial; mid goes deeper with the hops and then becomes balanced; final is mild, malty, and the hops continue a good while. Medium body. Very tasty. Much better than the earlier version.

5.5%. Vienna. Dark straw colour. Soft malty run off on the nose. Medium full body. Rich though generic malt body with soft but firm bitterness. Ok.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Molto. Pretty medium amber-orange color with lace. Grassy hop nose, light Vienna malt and citrus. Light and clean flavor, crackers, with bread, light caramel and big grassy hop. Very drinkable and nice. A bit of Nelson-esque catpiss too, but just a touch. Much better than the old recipe.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from the local supermarket, Maruman. Amber colour with small beige gold head. Aroma is toffee malty, grainy, not much else, but perfectly pleasant. Taste is caramel and toffee, slight bitterness at the end. Nice Vienna, and after really being disappointed by the last Coedo I had, this was a pleasant surprise. Sweetness but not sickly. Decent Vienna as far as I am concerned.
