jookos (3622) - FINLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Tap@wka. Pale golden, clear. Some apples on nose, grsin bready malts, honey citrus. Light med bodied, dryish light tart. Strance lager. Feels like a mix of cider and (lager) beer. Interesting, but quickly boring. Not much flavour, feels gimmicky.

AWS9 (563) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle. Fairly typical gold lager colour - nothing exciting. Bread-y aroma, with some maltiness. Oily mouthfeel, which isn’t entirely off-putting, but it doesn’t make it the most ’refreshing’ as lagers go. Quite smooth and inoffensive, nothing stands out nor does anything offend. It’s quite bland really.

Tide (2287) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Draught at Rotterdam. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, toast, wet cardboard, malts and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, toast and grass. Very bulky lager.

Bottle on board Fridtjofen 22.07.15. Clear straw coloud. Diminishing white head. Moderate aroma of flowerfields and fresh grass. Similar taste, well balanced with pale malt. Excellent drinkability! Fine aftertaste, with moderate bitterness and succade.
