3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, LCBO. Dark yellow, medium creamy white head. Aroma of hay, cereal, and a vit of yeast as well. Mouthfeel is full; a surprise for the style, and adds greatly to the beer. taste is decent - sort of tinny hops you come to expect fr0m European lagers, but also a nice amount of bready and cereal like malt as well. This one grew on me - I was not impressed at first, but through the whole glass quite a bit of flavour emerged. Certainly a cut above in this category.

Bottle., at Jomfruin in Reykjavik. Surprised to see that it’s a California common style! Delicate florals and clean pale malts. Very enjoyable, surprisingly aromatic.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 1919 lounge, Reykjavík. Light chestnut colour, light carb, thin white head. Nose is hoppy with some grass and wet hop, touch of wet blanket. Mouth is initially a bit of hop, immediately overwhelmed by biscuity malt which builds and builds over the hop, towards a dull malty finish. Bipolar in its offering.
