3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
No idea why this is a PL; the unpasteurized "live beer" style of E. Europe is quite different (elements of a gueuze, with its sourness, emphasis on malt, and low hops ratio; also has some tastes in common with kvas). Drinkable and rewarding

Hazy blonde and with a fair amount of carbonation. Pillowy head. Aroma is fairly clean yeastiness. This is a fairly yeasty brew with a light maltiness and a hint of juiciness in the finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden, minimal white head. Nose is buttery notes, malt, boiled vegetables, some sweetness, some hay and mild hoppy notes. Taste is watery, with some malt and hops come in the end portion of the taste. Bready-malty, slightly sweet aftertaste. Thin body, lively carbonation, mouthfeel like sparkling mineral water. It’s OK, but pretty forgettable.
