2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small offwhite head. Hazy opaque brown body. Earthy rye bread
aroma with yeasty notes. Sweet, and faintly acidic, earthy
raisiny rye bread taste. Full-bodied. Mild, slightly flat
mouthfeel. Sweet, faintly acidic, earthy mealy rye bread
aftertaste with spicy syrupy notes. It does lack some
complexity, and it is a bit on the sweet side, but I kind of like
it. (1.5l PET bottle from yngwie. Thanks!)

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle, 1.5ltr, at Anker Hostel kvass rating session 2014. It’s a hazy golden to brown drink with just a thin ring og light beige bubbles. The aroma is quite sweetish, with some dark rye bread, lemon, dried fruits and hay. It’s quite flat and thin on the palate, with rye bread, wort, sugar and too much lemon.sweet finish with lemon and sried fruits. Well, way too sweet this one, definitely not my kind of beer. 140503

Super bready sweet aroma. A little bit of citrus. Smooth palate, nice carbonation. Love this. Cloudy reddy brown. Finish is sweet, but so bready. One of the best bottled kvasses I’ve ever had.

1,5l pet bottle (deliverd by FatPhil, thanks). Hazy, dark brown color. Very bready, sweet, raisins, slight honey in aroma. Honey, raisins, sweet, sugary flavor. Not bad, but way too sweet to enjoy properly.
