2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle, 5.2% abv., thanks to Finn. Dense and frothy white head with fine duration. Bright, golden-yellow body. Spotty lacing. Basement smell with pale malts, mid-sweet. Nice, rather discreet taste of malty sweetness added by herbal hops. Rounded and dry, malt-bitter ending. Medium bodied. A likeable pilsener (Tromsø, 16.06.2012).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske 0,5l fra Alko Muonio. Veldig lys gylden med et høyt, hvitt kremaktig skum som klistrer seg til glasset. Kraftig aroma av forsiktig brent malt. Antydning til frukt. Smaken overraskende fyldig. Smak som aromaen men med rikere fruktnyanser. Røde plommer. God fruktig bitterhet avslutter et godt øl.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, HElsinki)
Doesn’t smell so clever, just a dry dusty pale pilsner aroma, not really standing out against a typical pale lager. Looks good though, it’s a fairly golden yellow, the head is very tight. Palate nice and full, shows some herbal bitterness before you’ve even swallowed. Some lactic aspects too. Full well-attenuated grainy body, dry, almost resiny bitterness. Good lager once you tasted it, shame it didn’t sell itself so well with the rather feeble aroma.

Clear golden color, small white head. Nose is malty with some typical Czech butterness. Light-bodied, even suprisingly watery for 5.4%. Front is empty and watery, a bit metallc, then some sweetish maltyness followed by Saaz btterness in the finish. Clean and boring Bohemian pils.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. BBE 18.11.2012.
Pours a light yellow colour with a large, frothy and lacy head. Aroma of grassy hops, light citrus and grainy malts. Flavour of grassy hops, grainy malts, citrus and some cardboard-like notes after a while. Light bodied, thinnish mouthfeel and a light bitter and malty finish. Lacks both hops and malts. Boring bohemian pils, but no off-flavours.
