1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Pours like a cider - pale and fizzy, no head after about 2s. Smells a little appley too, and nothing else there apart from that. Taste is mostly water, with a little bit of sweet flowery hop extract. Finish is metallic and bitter. In a better context, I’d like the hoppy bite, but in such a gutless context, it stands out as being artificial and chemical. Thoroughly unenjoyable. Probably the nicest beer that I’d say was in the "horror" zone. Did not like. Offered it to the sink gods.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Botella. Yellow, unclear colour, hardly any head, fizzy like, white. Grain corn unpleasant aroma. Thin mouthfeel. Sweet grainy strange artificial like flavour, unpleasant. Like the great Finn Patrick so often says: "Assbeer!". He doesnt need to brew one, Neuzelle has done it.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Light golden, very small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate sweetish vinous aroma with berries(?). Light to medium, malty - and sweetish flavor, vinous notes with some berries. Finish is short to average, maltiness and some berries (?), faint hoppyness. Horrible.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle by 27.06.12. Nose is sweet and grassy in a strange way, squished cherry and stale skittles. Super pale yellow body is almost clear, has a loud and fizzy beige head that’s gone quickly. Taste is lightly malty but green, in the post-mashy sense, sweet and lightly artificial but not cloying, fruitiness as described above with a healthy splash of (non-alcoholic) apple cider. Smooth and lightly crisp medium-light body, the general effect is to be inoffensive. Have to at least give it up to these guys, they make the kind of beer they want to make, and really stick to it, damn the torpedoes!
