1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
0.33 can. Pale gold color, nearly no head at all. Mostly hoppy aroma with some yeasty undertones, generally smells of cereals and grass with a small touch of liquorice, not that bad actually. Very simple taste, mostly yeasty but frankly speaking it is hard to tell as it’s ridiculously soft. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation. Finish is short and uneventful, brings in some hops for a change. Overall the beer is bad as expected, with the exception of an uncannily nice aroma as for the style.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Old rating rerated 16.08.2013, 0,3l bottle @ Planmeca Helsinki:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, light malts, grain, caramel, grass. Taste is slightly dry, light malts, hay, weeds, grain, caramel. Medium bitterness. Fair enough, boring.

330ml bottle from local supermarket and a 440ml bottle from Russia made under license at Baltika, tried both in a blind test. Cereal aroma with some grassy hints, golden colur, light body, thin mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Interestingly enough the one made under license at Baltika was overall slightly less watery. A relatively poor basic lawnmower beer.
