omhper (23428) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 Re-rate, draught at Lido, Riga. Hazy amber, small head. Sweet and doughy. Medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Bread and some syrup. Light malt bitterness. Draught at Lido, Tallinn, Estonia. Cloudy deep golden, creamy head. Mild citric nose. Sweetish with light-medium body and fairly clean mouthfeel. Some caramel. A little sourish and lacking in depth. Resiny bitterness. Off shape, if it hadn’t been poured at one of Lido’s own establishments I wouldn’t have rated it ,now it’s been in their control all the way to my glass. (4/5/4/2/8=2.3)

MiP (15272) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Draught, 4.5% at LIDO. Cloudy amber colour. Very small head. The flavour is OK malty, with a little roasted malt. Perhaps also the tiniest note of smoke. Pleasantly mild carbonation. Simple, but nice.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2011 Draught (Alus Seta, Riga) (5:3:5:3:11=2.7)
Arom is a heavy muesli grain aroma, raw. A little dusty too. Taste is creamy but also slightly drying hoppiness. Pleasant but not brilliant. Hints of mud or mushrooms later.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
0.5L pour at LIDO. Amber golden pour with a little bit of white head. The aroma is a little bit sweet and slightly fruity. There is a touch of DMS along with some light malt sweetness. A light floral character but muted. It’s okay though. It’s no cask bitter, that’s for sure.

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2013
Medium creamy dense offwhite head. Slightly hazy deep amber body with strong carbonation. Mealy strawy aroma with herbal dusty notes. Dry-sweetish dusty strawy grainy taste with spicy earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish-dusty strawy aftertaste with earthy grainy notes. Nice, vivid, but not very exciting. (0.3l draft at Alus Setas, Riga.)
