2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(55 cl bottle from Kervanís; BBD: Illegible) Pours a clear, pale golden with medium white head and lively carbonation. Decent retention. Aroma is green apple, hay and noble hops. Light body, watery texture and a slightly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is initially slightly sweet but the hops dry out the impression even if they donít do anything else. A bit too light and watery to really make a good impression.

Bottle from Ramirez Liquor. Pale golden color with a white head. Grainy sweetness on the nose, apple, grass, soap, and biscuit. A touch of earth and some fruity esters. The flavor is a bit stale. Old bread, apple, soap, and grass. Kind of just grainy and sweet.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500mL thanks to womencantsail. Clear golden pour. Spotty foam. Husky raw nose, sticky nasties. Not a good nose- probably stale. Go figure. Taste is not bad, cidery, husky, a bit sticky. Soapy perhaps. Not offensive, but not much going on.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: 2"+ fluffy white head recedes slowly. Moderate lacing and moderate carbonation. Color is straw and mostly clear.
Aroma: smell is of fruity hops (almost a grape/raisin aroma), yeasty bread, and lightly toasted malts.
Mouthfeel: light and slightly sticky. Finishes crisp, dry, and refreshing.
Flavor: nicely balanced lager with sweet malts holding forth but enough floral hops to even it out.
Overall: I canít find anything to criticize about this beer. Excellent and enjoyable.
