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.

pentaz (1256) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a diminishing white head. Aroma is flowers, elderberry, piss, citrus, and some herbs in the late finish. Taste is near moderate bitter and light sweet. Body is light+, texture is mild creamy and carbonation is moderate. Finishes hoppy, bitter and dry. Packs a surprisingly amount of flavor - not bad at all.
