2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle, clear deep gold colour, medium soapy head. Aroma is floral hops, hay, boiled vegetables and a hint of resin, taste is slightly on the bitter side. Bitter piney finish, light body, light carbonation. Remember it used to have less hops a couple of years ago, this one actually reminds me quite a lot of a decent pils, body could be a bit more robust and the boiled taste reduced the score a bit.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear orange like lagers are. Makes some white head but it disappears quickly into just a permanent ring on top of the beer. Leaves only little lacing. The aroma is clean, grainy pale malty and grassy hoppy. The taste is also very clean, grainy pale malty and little fruity sweet. The mouthfeel is thin to medium with a sparkling carbonation. There’s a moderate amount of bitterness and the finish is quite short and carbonated. It actually feels a lot like soda water. A clean and refreshing pale lager, like it should be made.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden 50cl alu-can with same design as the 5,2abv version, but abv 4,6.
Pours an average white head on the bright golden body. Scents of hops, flowers, fruits, and maybe a distant bonfire.
Distinct malty taste at start, intermediate through hops, some chocolate or caramel, rye bread, grain. Some bitterness, well balanced. Not watery.
Aftertaste with dark bread, hints of burnt timber, grains. A pale lager with more taste than many others of same style.

Basic lager feel, no head and basic colour. Quite full flavor, average carbonation. Not that waterish so pretty ok.
