3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tried this one back in Sep’ 2009 – Appears a cloudy, light sandy yellow. Head rises up all froth then dwindles back to a messy, sudsy pad that manages good legs. Fresh zesty and ripe summer fruits emerge at first whiff, never to air again? Barnyard grains and hay after that, cereal-like with just a little pine resin. Wonderfully gritty and spicy on the palate. Grainy and herbally peppery, all pale malts and noble hops in the mouth. Sprightly in carbonation giving it good bounce, with a clean, moderately bitter and crisp all hop finish. Quite dry, subtle grassy and chaff notes, good cereal base, slightly earthy linger develops. Went down with need of another to follow. Extremely well balanced, good assertive flavours and very light on the palate so you could slam them back all night! (BB 13/10/09, 33cL, Int’l Beer Store W.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle at home. Very pale golden and slightly hazy beer. The head is white, thin and quite lacy. The aroma has grainy malts, some grassy hops and a hint of sweetish fruitness. The flavor has fresh and quite lemony bitterness. Malts are slightly bready and grainy. The finish is bitterish and grassy. The palate is medium bodied, quite smooth and refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hefig-herber Antrunk, der insgesamt eher mild ist. Auch im Verlauf bleibt das Bier mild, sobald die Herbe steigt, tut die Hefe es ihr gleich und wirkt so süffig. Leicht getreidig, auch dies wird zum Ende etwas intensiver. Erfrischend, etwas blumig. Gelungenes Pils, das sich für Hopfenfreunde eignet. 11/9/12/10/9/9

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I love the name. Sounds like something that comes out of the Food Vats in DOA sector, right next to the Cold Fun. Very hazy yellow pour, juice like. Little bit of frothy white head. Earthy scent, grassy, touch of hops. Rather easy to drink. Much better then I expected. Very smooth, not very complex but pleasant. Grassy hoppy easy to drink taste. This is the surprise of the night.
