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.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Manure aroma. Now that’s truly organic! Cloudy yellow, thin head, full of floaties.Beans and manure flavor. Rice finish. What is this? More flavorful than a macro, but this is not a good way. I was looking forward to this beer. On paper, this looked like it might be pretty neat. In the end, it is just a bad tasting beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Happy to try this - love some of the Meinklang wines, especially the Pinot Noir a few years back, interested to see what they do with beer. Pales a slightly hazy gold. Aroma is grainy, a touch bready. Flavor is interesting, very focused on malts. Surprisingly full bodied, with an almost berry note to the otherwise crackery grains. Hops only there to provide balancing bitterness. Intersting what the traditional grains did for this brew.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
"Brewed with ancient grains"... toivottavasti eivät ole pilaantunutta viljaa käyttäneet. Väriltään tämä olut on ns. amber ja muodostaa keskisuuren määrän valkoista vaahtoa. Sen tuoksu on hyvin viljainen ja mallasta sekä hedelmäisyyttäkin siinä on. Jonkinlainen sekaleipä tämä kai on. Maussa mukaan tulee hieman humalointia ja pieni metallnen sivumaku. Koostumukseltaansakaan tämä ei ole kummoinen. Maksoin tästä ihan liikaa, enkä tule sitä enää tekemään.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly orange yellow beer quite weak and blond head. Aroma is malty, biscuity and lots of grass, hint of honey. Light and even watery to drink, still carbonation is smooth and nice. Taste is quite similar than aroma, pure malts and biscuits, some grassy hops with a quite light bitterness. There are nothing special but still pure, light and enjoyable beer; maybe a better beer than points indicates?
