2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A light yellow beer with an almost medium and white head. Aroma is malty and slightly sweet, some grass; pure and fresh aroma. Taste is malty, sligtly aromatic and fruitfull, bitterness is grassy and mild, but still there are enough of hops. Medium- bodied, smooth and pleasant to drink. Nicely aromatic and fruitfull taste, even the unpersonal beer was expected based on the aroma; nice Pils.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale straw, thin white head.
Strangely papery aroma, rice, wheat, fruit?
Dry, light in body and bitterness, low CO2.
Citrusy taste, rice, pepper, some cardboard, a weird spicy touch.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma was surprisingly strong. But that was the only good thing about this beer. Nothing to write home about, but no real bad sides to this beer either except the not so appealing typical lager appearance.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Finland.
Clear pale golden colour with tiny white head.
Grassy hoppy aroma with grainy maltiness.
Quite fresh grassy hoppy flavour with grainy malt and some earthy tones.
Very drinkable. And it's fairtrade and organic. That's always a plus.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour, thin white head. Mild aroma of malt, butter and notes of metal. The flavour is lightly malty, with somefruity notes and a mildly grassy-hoppy finish. Tasteless and watery, but a few extra points for a gluten-free brew.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite an ok beer for being fairtrade, organic and gluten free which it gets extra points for. This is a blond beer with a medium head and with mainly hop aroma and taste. Short aftertaste.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Pretty much straight down the middle cheap-arse pilsner. Pretty clean taste, lightly perfumey on the nose and in the retronasals. Body light and crisp. Finish has a slightly metallic bite. There’s a tiny hint of something like ginger trying to get out too, but not enough to save it from almost terminal dullness. The only redeeming feature of this is that, given that it’s a gluten-free beer, it’s not completely awful - so respect to Huyghe for that.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled 330ml (Alko, BB 03/2014)
Clear golden color, vanishing white head. Grainy with odd plastic aroma, some grassy and metallic notes. Light to medium bodied. Metallic, grainy, some green apple. Low bitterness. Some Finnish mainstream lagers (Koff III?) taste similar.
