On draft at the brewery tap. For me the most difficult to rate. Simpler and more approachable that all the others it nonetheless was the most appealing by the end of the glass. I have a problem with polotmavies because they have alway struck me as contrived, but a bit like that ghastly marketing creation Irish Red some of the newer ones are better. This one is unashamedly soft and sweet-ish in a grainy, marshmallow sort of way but there is still a bit of hop in there saying hello. And the aroma is beer not sweetshop.

Marduk (6435) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 28, 2016
500ml bottle (Dno plytni, Prague) as 4% abv. Hazy dark amber color. Small off-white head, stays. Berries, sweet, shit, yeasty in aroma. Sour, caramel, yeasty in taste. Gone off. But in a way I don’t mind. Sour but drinkable.

FatPhil (14084) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 27, 2016
500ml bottle (Dno Piytle?, Prague) - for free as it was just past BB
Sourish aroma, some apple. Caramelly taste, but the sourness has kicked in. Nice orange, tight persistent head. OK, past its BB, but you can see there is a decent amber lager trying to get out. Finish dry.

Bottle shared by Phildurk. 4% ABV. BB 18.05.16. Slightly hazy copper, small off-white head. Nose is malty, sweet, vegetal. Flavor is sour, malts, grains. This has gone off, so this needs a rerate.

JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2016
From a bottle at the brewery-hotel shop, at the reception desk. I think we’re a month from best-buy date, but I don’t know what that means. Pours a hazy gold. This is a sweet beer, a straightforward light fruity caramel taste, with light bitterness and stopping just short of cloying. It hits a comfort center but I’m not sure why I should keep on drinking it.
