I drank this after my first all-grain brewday. Good thirst quencher. Little bit sweet. Did I smell scent of honey?

Bottle from Prisma, Kovoula, Finland.
Short off White head. Small sparkling in a clear pale yellow beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle as seen in the pic. liked the artwork.
Bought from Lamb’s Thriftway in Wilsonville OR. $4.59
Pours a clear golden colour with an initially large frothy white head. That fades down fast but leaves OK lace.
Ok biscuity,malty aromas. Some sweet floral hop and a touch of dough. Not that bad really.
Smooth malty semi-sweet taste..leaves a tinge of the hop in the last of the gulp. KInda weak compared even to the aroma.
Its OK in the mouth.. bout average for style.
OK drink, not the best but I can drink this.

Bottle at home. Very light straw colour, moderately fizzy with a thin head. Clean, fresh aroma which carries through to the taste which becomes more fruity as the beer warms ups. Quite sweet though.
