2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 21.04.2010
Aroma has grassy hops, some grainy malt and hints of hay. Flavour is slightly fruity and somewhat sweet with grassy hops, grainy malt, some corn and hints of butter. A disappointment, just slightly better than bulk lagers around here. Perhaps I should stop buying bottles by their labels...

On tap. Aroma of caramel and malt. Color light brown. Tastes a bit rough and bitter. Different from standard lagers, don’t know if it’s better or worse thou (prolly worse..)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Actually pretty good. Brownish with big non lasting head. Citric aroma. Thin mouthfeel - too thin for me. Taste is citric from the hops. Moderate bitterness. Low sweetnes.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Can. Light amber colour with a white head. Light fruity nose. Mostly caramel flavour with some hoppy notes. Compared to the description from the brewery.....this was a huge dissapointment.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear darkish amber pour with a lasting foamy beige head. Aroma is fairly malty but also features a distinct and appealing dose of hops with notes of caramel, biscuit, pepper, grass and pine. The hops don’t stand out as much initially in the flavour, with lots of sweet malt up front, but they come through a lot more on the finish which is also pleasantly bitter. Mouthfeel is slick with fairly low carbonation. This really is a pretty decent lager overall, nothing mind-blowing but better than a lot of the other examples of this style of lager.
