3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium beige head doesn’t last. Deep brown body. Faint earthy roasty aroma. Dry dusty strawy earthy taste with sweetish chocolatey notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Sweetish earthy floral roasty aftertaste with herbal caramelly butter notes. Interesting, complex, and unusual. Lots going on, and all of it quite subtle. (0.33l draft at Bix Baras, Vilnius.)

Very pancakey aroma - all of the ingredients, egg included, and with nicely fried crisp edges too. Taste amazingly similar. Some sweet berry jam too. Maybe the pancakiness is just end of barrel decay, but it’s so delicious, and not sour at all. Sweet jammy finish.

6 Initially Anna got soy. I thought it was a bit savory, but not soy. Creaminess there, and dry malted barley’s there too, but sweet also.
4 Coppery, small tight off-white head.
7 Lovely taste, sweetmalted barley, but a pancakey sweetness and creaminess.
4 Smooth palate, gentle carbonation. Finish is pure sweet barley.
14 Bloody excellent dark traditional lager without having any extremes or gimicks.
Sweet caramelly aroma, simple, and a metric fuckton of diacetyl. Clear brown, no head apart from brief fizz. Sweet and caramelly body, very simple. Thin palate, a bit fizzy. What have you done to my black crows?!?! This is nothing like what it was!
