I am not a fan of this sour/bitter beer. When I see people purchasing it in a liquor store I cringe at the thought of them drinking it. I can’t imagine that this beer tastes the same way if you were to drink it fresh at the brewery. In fact, I’ve been told that the US recipe is completely different than the recipe they use for European distribution.

Very standard yellow look, with small head. Smells fairly skunky, but not too much. It tastes a little skunky, and watery, but I prefer it too most other macro lagers - European or American. The feel is light and made for drinking.

bartholos (193) - GERMANY - MAY 28, 2016
5L Can. Straw yellow, full white frothy head. Weak aroma, mostly grain and some caramel with a slight floral hint. Lighy to medium sweetness, good light bitter finish. Well balanced. Light body, high carbonation, fresh and crisp. Flavor is mostly malty, grain, dough and caramel along with a floral and spicy hint. Overall harmonic and easy drinking. Average, but not bad.

rostetti (21) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle from local market. Pale golden lager, just like typical lager usually looks like.Very small white head. Aroma is hoppy, a bit sweet, I like the aroma. Taste is also hoppy, even a bit sweet as well, I can also taste some corn on it. This is maybe my favorite big lager, very drinkable, even enjoyable.

Very good beer, nicely balanced between sweet and bitter, and quite fruity if you pay attention: a very, very good taste. A bit on the pricey side but well worth the refreshing qualities.
