Tap (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Oktoberfest 2015)
Pleasant grainy aroma, quite bready. Refreshing palate. Nice bready taste too. Gentle hops in the finish give a nice little bitter tingle. Fresh and refreshing.

Mortlach (1555) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 28, 2015
On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Light amber color with a medium to light head. Aroma is malty, bread, cereals, light hops, very nice. Flavour is well balanced between sweetness and bitterness. Medium body, light carbonation. Amazing!

Dedollewaitor (15070) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2015
Gravity @ Heckel in Waischenfeld. Pours cloudy orange with a small creamy head. Woody and yeasty nose and flavor with a fruity and marmelade hop bite. Quite bitter. Flavor is musty and has an unclean note. Yeast, honey and green apples. Sticky, oily and bitter finish. Quite a disappointment! Dirty!

Gravity cask @ Akkurat. Deep straw, white head, slight haze. Malty, slightly hoppy aroma, citrus, straw, yeast, bisquit. Dry, medium body and bitterness, creamy CO2. Malty, clean taste, citrus, noble hops, yeast, faint caramel, vaguely spicy. Very well balanced, uncomplicated, highly drinkable. (2015-02-18)

hirigalzkar (2677) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2015
Cask @ Akkuart. This beer has got a rustic grainy feel aswell as a more noble fruity and herbal one. Notes of light bread, apricots and almonds. Smooth mouthfeel.

Une mousse grandiose m’invite à une plongée en eaux juteuses. Des mineolas parfaitement mûres, des céréales agglutinées, des sucres fruités et un miel de fleur enrobant nous téléportent vers une buvabilité sans lendemain. Quel solide déjeuner.

MartinT (8855) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This rustic lager showcases herbal hop bitterness surrounded by cushy honeyed cereals in a softly carbonated vehicle.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the misty golden.
-Citrus rind allusions are found as well.
-This is not unlike some of Czechia’s unfiltered brewpub Ležáks.
-This one’s on the verge of being great. Which, for a gloomy pub which reeks of depression, is a beacon of hope.
