3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copenhagen 1/2 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. A lot of lemon grass on the label to ensure that you do not miss this vital Asian ingredient when drinking this. Pours hazy golden yellow with white head. Settles as flimsy foamy patches floating around. Aroma is of exotic fruit mingling with citrus fruit - might be the lemongrass. Fizzy carbonation and watery palate. Flavour is suprisingly thin and watery compared to the aroma. Sour citrus and light hints of sweetness. Bitter aftertaste with semi dry finish. All kind of diluted. Smells and looks way better than it tastes.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden with white head. Aroma (which is the best of this beer) is lemongrass, citrus and hops. Taste is weak: like a lemon tea, watery, not very hoppy, ok in summer, but definitely lacks of character and flavour. Just ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Pleasant citrussy aroma, quite lemony. Light palate, pleasant carbonation. Lemongrass very clear in the taste, but not too spikey. Light malts, a bit of soapiness too. Refreshing and summery. However, ultimately a bit thin and unsatisfying.
