Very faint aromo of some hops, floral, and citrus. Pale gold in color with w thin white head. Thin sweet malt up front. Sweetness fades quickly. Notes of biscit and bread. Peppery bitterness comes in, fairly mild. Finish is a light bitterness. More like a pilsner than a pale ale. Watery mouth feel.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stranger, eh? Very Strange. People are strange, and so is this beer. Nothing like the paragon of virtue, truth and the American way of Brewing: BLATZ. Think about it. Or not. OK stuff, but I couldn’t see myself walking across the street to get anymore….UNLESS…I was out of Blatz, Blatz Light, Hamm’s, grain belt, shaeffer, Schmidt, and innumerable others. So do your fat old body some good, and hie down to the local market & grab a case of Blatz. Watch as the other shoppers enviously eye your grocery cart and try making small talk as they know you are sauve, sophisticated, keen, eagle-eyed, pillar of the community.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale light golden, softest cloud and head very little lacing. Oily sweetcorn, brassy malt, light spice. Initial taste is weak bitterness, tinny malt and builds to spicy sweetcorn middle. Pressing carbonation and grassy hay dryness. Finish is releasing creamy and lightly bitter. Not terribly hoppy or juicy and a light spiciness to the linger. Drinkable, odd, unsatisfying. Bottle, Beets.

The "Strangest" thing about this is how comparable it is to a Budweiser. Really Really disappointed in this one

olio (7245) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2014
2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355 ml bottle.
Pours clear pale golden color with a small head. Okay, this seems to be a let down from the get-go, very faint herbal notes on the nose, barely notice the hops, lots of wet hay. Flavor is just as bland, hay, faint resinous hop notes and some orange. Grassy bitterness on the finish. It is crisp and refreshing but there isn’t just enough flavors here. I wouldn’t classify this as an APA.
