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.

Aroma: Hoppy, some butterscotch and fruity.
Palate: Medium body. Tad sweet and a moderat bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Fruity, mild citric hoppy, mild malty and mild herbal.
Overall impression: Decent and ok. Still a little bit boring ale.

Bottle in my Copenhagen hotel room. Thanks again to Rune, such a generous lovely Ratebeerian. Hazy gold beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and dry. Light airy malt, some floralness. Trace of apple tang and a touch of paper. Light airy finish. Not great.
