4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,35 l can. Pours nice light amber with a small head. I love the aroma! I guess this is one of the hoppiest aromas I’ve encountered with a lager so far. But well, this one is supposed to be “india pale lager”. Aroma is fresh, some fruits, melon and freshly cut grass. Taste has two layers, from one side it is mellow and soft, just like eating some marshmellows (altbeit not so sweet) – but it has a bitter kick inside that takes over when the aftertaste comes.Aftertaste is long, dry and bitter. Body is satisfying, not too full but not too watery either. I guess Coedo has been able here to do something pretty special – using a very common lager as a base to create something special. Thumbs up!

Bottle from K&G. Nice malty beer. Aromas of caramel, nuts, and honey. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355mL thanks to MrChopin’s little sister. Pours a clear, bright golden. Weak white head. Weak carbonation. Nose is thick orange candies, cheesecloth, some IPA style aromatics, American style citrus hops, fresh dough, bread crust. Taste is quite nice- bitter, grassy, sugar cube, fresh bread, flour, so much snappy pils malt. Long, bitter, dusty finish. Actually very enjoyable, bitter, dry. Impressive. Some rustic grain flavor is quite nice making this pilsener instead of IPA in profile.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Oto Market in Sacramento, CA. Pours light golden amber with a slight white head. Aroma is light fruit - melon? grape? Med body or nearly. Flavor is grapey with a touch of citrus, plus breadiness. Certainly much tastier than the average sweet Vienna.

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.
