2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Århus Ølfestival. A murky brown beer with a medium sized beige head leaving nice lacings. Caramel and banana in the aroma, quite malty-sweet and with some cloves. Caramel and banana flavor too, sugary-sweet with some cloves and a gentle bitterness. Full-bodied and effervescent. Long bitter finish with some white sugar. A quite nice beer that I could easily down a few of on a late summer evening. (080516)
