2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear glass bottle by 21.06.12. Light citrus and light malt, no skunk or corn, but a little off in the nose. Pale yellow-golden with a white head. In the mouth, dry and paint stripping chalk, there’s a sense of bruised grain. Full body is crisp and a little frisky, but it really should be too excited.

330 ml bottle picked up at Maruhn in Darmstadt, Germany. Pours a clear pale yellow color.with soft fast to go white head. Grassy, old vegies and skunky aroma. Taste is a weak, but malty flavor, strange old dusty taste. Low bitterness but not very nice. Very faint aftertaste of old compost. Blah why?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (BioMarket Kaubamaja, Tallinn)
5 A bit of cat piss on opening, but pours with a bready aroma, slightly weetabixy grains.
2- Clear glass bottle, get’s the obligatory punishment, has a pleasantly tight head which saves it from the 1.
6- Lovely pinenutty malts for retronasals. Realy weetabixy grainy taste, bready too, like an LA (the bready variety, not the disgusting pilser variety) that’s trying to make up for the lack of alcohol, but apparently this is a proper full-fat beer. Buuuut, saying that, there’s no hint of alcohol in this. Great glugger on a hot day.
3+ Crisp palate, pleasant carbonation. Finish starts bready, but continues with a lovely floral hop resin. Gentle, but distinct. Late finish is the more metallic aspects of that resin, but it’s not an unpleasant metallicness. Late late finish goes back to weetabix again.
11 I think we have a new 2.7 benchmark beer. I’m going to have a Zlaty Bazant which was my previous 2.7 benchmark.
