1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml can (S Market, Espoo)
From the can, ice cold from the fridge. Smells of nothing. Tastes of fizzy water. Taste dominated by carbonic acid. This might have some aroma or taste if it warms up, but that’s not what the brewer intended, and those tastes might not be any good any way. Drink this while working in the sun if you have an aversion to sugary pop, I guess. Not if you want beer.

Drunk from can, 0.33 l. Smell of starch. Medium sweet, lively carbon. Aroma of grain, some bread, starch. Finish is rather short but does not end up being watery. Nicely balanced and light.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Canned (from Prisma, Vaasa). Yellowish golden colour with a small white head, that vanishes quickly. Aroma is mild grass, some bready and grainy notes. Flavour is quite similar with the breadyness being most evident. Watery, but what could you expect. Actually better than I thought it would be.
