bottle 330ml from CM Sello ABV 4,4% Golden yellow small white head. EXP week 25-09. This is my third bottle of this during six months or so. It is different than first one. Grassy bit spicy tickling carbonation. Fudge and malts totally lost.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Two 330 ml bottles. I mention this because I poured the first one down the drain, thinking it had gone bad. But nooo, this beer is probably supposed to taste like a compost heap of last month’s grass and wet leaves. The color is an attractive golden hue, but everything goes downhill from there. I didn’t finish the second bottle either. Just plain awful.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2009 33cl bottle, 4.4%. Golden, tiny coarse head. Toasty aroma with grainy malts and light mint. Similar, honest bready flavor with soft & lovely minty hops, some hay too. Moderate bitterness. Almost medium bodied, smooth average carbonation. Pretty characteristic, and of course very sessionable pale lager.
On tap this is modest citric seeds and grain, no bitteness, very easy drinking dry session brew.

0,33l bottle, ABV 4,4%. Nice golden color, little head. Nose is very malty. Flavor is quite boring, malty and kind of sweet. Not much to write about.

Earlier Rating: 11/9/2007 Total Score: 1.9
Draught@ Svenska Dagar, Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Looks like a standard lager, but a bit hazy and with a huge, thick white head. Smells like a Finnish lager (at least not like a Swedish one). Taste quite ok, though. Nasty finish.
