2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark golden, fizzy carbonation, collapsing white foam.Sweet malt, sugary aroma. Light fruity sweet base otherwise surprisingly little taste, neither good nor bad - just enough hops to balance the initial sweetness, medium body, fizzy, lean alcohol from the sugar, a hint stickiness in the end, then notjhing. Boring alcohol delivery mechanism.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, 7.7% version, thanks Jonas! Oh boy, a Malt Likka. Let’s see. Pouring while still cold. Golden color with small creamy white head. Aroma is wet paper, straw, corn, raisins, syrupy booze, starch. Taste is surprisingly tart, wet cardboard and straw, warming alcohol, grainy sweetness, and a stingy boozy finish. Low to medium carbonation. Not a lot of fun, but not exactly terrible (yet - at least while being cold, but the off flavours already start showing up).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can shared by VsXsV at the Hyatt lobby fart share on Tuesday evening - thanks again, Viktor! Pours a clear pale gold with a small white head that settles into a ring. Sugars, cereal, corn, straw, and sweet bread. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, sweet mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. I’m not sure if words like "elegance" and "beautiful harmony" (per the deScription) are appropriate, but this is a very good malted liquor.
