3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(swing top bottle, bought at the brewery tap) Clear, deep golden colour with a thick and slightly off-white foamy head. Slightly sweet malty earthy aroma with herbal hops and a touch of caramel and honey. Moderately sweet flavour; light to medium body and carbonation. Soft malty, slightly toasted, honey-ish fruity taste with balanced herbal hops; medium-dry, slightly bitter finish. Solid Landbier.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2013 Re-rate from bottle: Still quite nice, but certainly a lot less hops than last time. Balanved more towards a bready, honeyish maltyness this time around.

Pretty dark amber, amber full creamy head.
Fresh aromatic and grassy hop nose.
Fruity malt baseline, light bodied with a elegant aromatic hop play and a fine bittterhop finish.
Elegant pale lager, must be the best of this style I have tried to date.

Deep golden color. Light hoparoma. Hoppy flavor with a hint of orange. Slightly grassy and malty. Light hopbitter aftertaste with a hint of glue. Both quality and drinkability combined.

A quite pleasant beer. Refreshing and very "clean". A bit neutral in some aspects like aroma and palate.
