3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle at the Beershop tent at the Rujanfest in Zagreb.
Poured a dark golden body with a medium-big persistent thick white head. Swetish malty nose, slightly oily but not offensive. The taste is again sweetish and malty, slightly flowery, very light herbal hopiness. Balanced, nice and drinkable.

Tap at RJ. Aroma malty, grain, caramel. Clear deep amber colour. Stable offwhite head. Taste is slightly watery considering the ABV. Earthy hops bitterness, caramel/fruit sweetness. I remain unimpressed.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a big Guinness glass. ABV 6.5%
Deep golden orange beer, with lots of activity in its clear body and a tall slighty off-white head, thick, with pretty good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of malts, lots of metal, not offensive though.
Taste is also malty, less sweet than I expected, light hay, sugar, alcohol somewhat notable but again, not offensive, it just gives an interesting note.
Medium thin body, carbonation is okay I guess, maybe towards the lower side
Overall nothing special, but it drinks okay.

Fine off white head. Deep golden clear body. Crocheted laceworks. Aroma; dark fruits, sweet malts, hops, plums, redcurrants, syrup, yeast, grains, straw, butter and milk, bread, dough. Taste; hops, caramel malts, roasted caramel, black syrup, prunes, wood, resin, resin oil. Smooth on palate, powerful and nice yet.
Finish with bread, dark caramel, barbecue oils, roasted sweet malts. Good brew. Powerful pilsener which seems to wish it was an ipa, sometimes.

(Bottle, thanks Gnoff) Pours light amber. Sweet honey like, light fruity aroma with with some hints of pears, apples and apricot. Some funky saaz undertones in the nose. Sugary, and a bit marizipa-ish sweet flavour with a funky, almost alcoholy bittrerness. Tiny fruity. Medium, malty body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaska från SB importerad och etiketterad av pilsnergubbarna. Gyllenfärgad med högt vitt skum. Stor brödig och alkoholfruktig doft. Alkoholburna smaker av honung, limpa, fruktgodis, brödkryddig lätt beska. Kroppen matchar alkoholen hyffsat, eftere några klunkar tonas den ned, men jag tycker ändå att den stör en del. Fina smaker dock.
