3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml, tall and elegant brown bottle with two dates on it: 01.07.11 and 28.12.11, hope I’m not about to open an old lager! This is a live tasting on 1st March 2013. The bottle was bought in a random shop along-side Walthamstow (London) Market two weekends ago.
The beer was poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard and it looks cloudy, it wasn’t half way through the pour, it became misty as I emptied the contents fully into the glass. Old gold with an issue is what I ended up with, the white fluffy head soon became disinterested and turned into a wispy island or two with a collar around the tankards rim.
The smell (at first) was like a German Wiessbier: I detected bananas and vanilla within the sweet aromas hitting my nose; tropical fruit esters followed, mango and pineapple for instance.
The taste is very fruity, those tropical fruits appearing in the flavour as I drink the beer. The alcohol giving the fruits an extra bounce, strength and sweetness. It is almost like a fruit punch or cocktail in depth of flavour and body: I’m impressed.
No idea if my bottle is 2 years out of date: but if it is, it has allowed the beer to mature into a weird and wonderful concoction of flavours that I’d love to taste again. My sweet tooth has really, really enjoyed this.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle (Iki, Vilnius)
Pale gold, brief head. Bland aroma - some hint of sweet maltiness and a touch of fruity perfume, but that’s all. Soft sweet palate, loads of retronasal esters. Swirling it around in the mouth you’ll get a bit of alcohol too, but you have to force it out. Simple strong lager malty body, a touch fruity and vinous, a touch of vanilla or other sweet softening element. Almond too. Gently, but noticably hopped - a touch grassy or hayey. Very drinkable. Not falling-over-juice for those who don’t care what they drink by any means. Dagnamit - I actually enjoyed this lager!
