Hints of orange and sweet malts waft to the fore as a touch of bitterness contributes to a smooth finish. 422 is brewed as a tribute to preserving our precious planet and it’s environment. It is responsibly packaged with over 80% recycled consumer products and is completely recyclable. Enjoy 422 all year as to take one stride closer to a eco-friendly life.

Keg (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Pale orange, tiny head. Vaguely beery aroma, light fruitiness I guess. Crisp carbonation. Slight hint of freezer ice and nettles. Very dull, and the carbonation detracts from the experience. Drinkable. The simple grains were nice.

HenrikSoegaard (12650) - Randers, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2009
Bottle. Creamy good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Moderate malty and hopy aroma. Light sweet and bitter flavor. Average light bitter finish. Oily palale. Boring and un-interresting beer.

Christian (12295) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2009
Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of grainy malt, with some sulphur notes. Thin malty flavour, with more of that cabbage-like sulphur hitting me. Nice and bitter finish though.

thewolf (11828) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Randers Vinhus.
Pours hazy yellow with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma has citrus, pine and grapefruit on top of light maltiness. Highish carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has very mild sweet wheat with some good, fruity and piney hops. Light dryness in the finish. Okay and rather fresh beer.

Pinball (11788) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2009
clear yellow, smooth thick white head. aromatic sweetish aroma, dry, a bit flowery. very nice. flavor is rather sweet and fruity, wheaty, drinkable, but too sweet in a weird way i think. would take this one instead of a macro pale something though.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a golden yellow color with a very, very slight haze. Medium head with decent retention. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is strong wheat with nutty notes, a bit of hops and corn. Taste is a grainy, nutty maltiness, bread, corn and a fruity hop finish. Medium bodied. Earth Day can taste much better than this.

Bov (11456) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 22, 2009
courtesy of Antonio Ruiz - pours a hazy blond colour with little persistent white foam; matured bananas and litchies in the nose; creamy mouthfeel and medium-bodied, quite sweet, fruity and almondy finish with some residual sweetness - unusual and interesting
