1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, thanks to Beerandblues2. Slightly hazy lemon yellow with a pure white head. Lemon, grain, light fruit, and lots of corn and grain in the aroma. Grainy, sweet, earthy, and very corny. Light fizzy body. Very odd.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml bottle. Slightly cloudy golden color, white head. Sweet aroma with a hint of nuttiness. Uneven flavor with wheaty notes, nutty finish. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. I’d rather have a mass-market lager.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
355mL 100% biodynamic thanks to beerandblues2. The pour is a clear, lightly hazed deeper yellow with a medium, bright white head. Good retention and small lace. Aroma is lemon, grain, malty husky, candy, cornbread, earth. Taste is bitter, corn, grainy, mild licorice or some oddity (urkorns?). Palate is watery, bland, sweet. It’s interesting, but really not too different from just your normal American macro pale lager stuff.

330 ml bottle. Cloudy orange-yellow colour, thin off-white head. Grainy, malty aroma, a whiff of sweet honey and grassy hops. The flavour is malty, slightly metallic, with a mildly bitter, grassy-hoppy finish. Dull, a bit rough, won’t buy again.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, from K Supermarket Kamppi) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was very small and white. Aroma was grassy and a little bit papery. Palate was quite light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grain, oatmeal porridge, wheat bread, grass, mildly sweetnes, a hint of carboard and low bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. Not a really good beer. It had positively interesting flavour profile but the paper and/or carboard both in the arom and in the taste was off-putting.
