2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Draugh at Schönes Fraulein, Helsinki, on 2008-08-16) Pale golden. Hardly any head. Very weak nose with some hop aromas. Dry, soft and light palate with lot of carbonation. Some bitterness, sweetness and hint of malts in taste. Not completely hopeless.

Tap at Schönes Fraulein. Golden, white thickish nicely lacing head. Nose is big malty, slightly aromatic hops and spices. Flavor is malty, fresh, fruity with a beefy aftertaste. Tastes like real beer and fresh. Very nice surprise.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden color, small mostly vanishing head. Brewing mash, red currant and citrus in the aroma. Very carbonated. Brewing mash -malty, lightly citrusy hoppy flavor. Kind of refreshing, a bit sweet. Not too bad from Carlsberg owned microbrewery, at least it is microbrew beer!

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hazy golden, small white head. Soft malty nose, little grain, hint of sourness. Slightly sweet, with no hops. Sweetish doughy flavor with some brewing mash and little soap. Very little or no bittering hops. Light to medium bodied, hollow and a bit watery palate. Strangely homebrew -like lager, especially from such big commercial brewers.
