3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, at the Okere Falls Store Beergarden. Opaque, light green gold hue with a thin white head. Lovely strong honey aromas, delightful fresh smelling malty hay floral grassy apple lime clove aromas. Malty sweetness nicely balanced with the right amount of bitterness, very tasty. Medium body, sticky texture, light carbonation, long dry crisp finish. Very nice refreshing way to end a hot summers day at the end of our holiday.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint bottle. Quite hazy dingy golden brown with just a blotchy white layer. The aroma is as fruity as some American Pale Ales and has pale malts. The first sip says there is a complex beer in store despite the style. The flavor has that fruit with some spiciness, a lot of yeast, and plenty of malts. Some honey and even cinnamon pops up. The finish was back to fruit and was a little disappointing. Still, this beer surprised me in so many positive ways.

500ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga) - shared by Marduk - thanks!
Rich grainy aroma, raw, almost eco, husky, muesli for stinking hippies. Pale straw colour, brief head. Very pleasant grainy body, some gentle hops, a little bitter herbs. Gets softer and sweeter down the glass. Finish a little tingly, but also a little bit of starchiness, heading towards wallpaper. Palate a little thin, but it’s crisp and refreshing. Easy drinker.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours crystal clear pale yellow with average thick foam diminishing fast, no lasing. Aroma - spicy sweetish malty, mild, pleasant but minimal hoppy, a bit like notes of honey. Taste is light sweet with medium bitter from hops. Spritzy seems on tongue, high carbonation hence the feeling of medium body, floury-thin texture, light herbal bitter finish, medium dry, pleasant light bitter aftertaste. O.A. - to me this seems nice lager sample after which you don’t want to see it again. Mild flavoured, pleasantly combined, easy drinkable lager type beer. Only critics - this floury mouth at the finish.

classic pilsener. Slight but not unpleasant skunkiness in aroma. Very smooth and nicely carbonated. NIce bitter snap for a finish. This is a quality beer - a little taste of hay on the back of the tongue.
