220ml taster, draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen. Rosewood body, no head, but a bit of laceworks on the glass. Rather poor aroma, only some hints of wheat. Wheat and roasted spelt in flavour, but overall quite savourless. Dry and sweet in the mouth (11.09.2008).

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Draught Fast gone yellow head; muddy brown beer with yellow highlights. Perfumed, lots of bubble gum, almonds. Bubble gum, banana in a sweetish, fruity taste. Ends very thin, despite its original fake-creamy onslaught. Not very enjoyable, IMO.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle (SOPP2008, Helsinki)
Banana-bread aroma. Really smooth silky velvetty texture in the mouth. Lovely banana and light, but also dense, dark wheaty taste. Very solid brew but one without no particular grab-me flavours. Finish is a bit sugary, but with a nice sticky sticky hop. If they could tone down the sugar this would be a classic.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Odd unclear brownish colour with an unstable tanned head. An acidic aroma containing burned coffee and malts and a flavour containing acids and alcohol as well. I’m afraid that as soon as the mental image of sewage appeared i wasn’t really able to enjoy this one.
