3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours a beautiful golden and has a bright white head. In a country where practically every brewery makes a 12° light lager it is rather easy to become blasé about it. This one however was very nice, with a slight bitterness which makes it a very refreshing and easy to drink lager, in fact I could quite believe that it is too easy to drink – especially as I polished off 5 half liters of the stuff over the course of the next few hours.

Pours cloudy golden with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma of Saaz hops and lcaramel. Taste is full of golden caramel, mixed well together with the dry grasy hops. Nice session beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Sourish aroma. Starts hoppy, abit sourish-moldy. Grasy-earthy notes follow. Finish a bit too moldy and boring. Not my favourite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[on tap at brewpub]
Sulfury and spicy base malt aroma with very fresh hops. Almost clear dark straw with a lasting, frothy cover. Nice, almost crisp, base malt flavour with assertive hops bitterness and less hops flavour than amoa may suggest. Some peppery/spicy flavour that doesn’t seem to work for me in this beer. Medium body, moderate carbonation, clean finish.

Draught at the brewpub:Golden, slightly hazy, smaller loose white head; distinctive herbal hoppy nose, supported by sweet pale malt and bread and yeast in the background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour; lingering dry, herbal-hoppy finish. Not bad, but a bit unbalanced........
