3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Stupendously huge, very dense, whipped-eggwhite-like head over orange-golden beer. Solvent nose, as well as another thing I seem to know from far - lineseed oil, maybe? Peppery and definitely with addition of white sugar; rather sharp nose generallly speaking. Sweet, with a sharp medicinal taste. I’m going to believe it contains lineseed oil (a fascist beer for communists?). Grainy flavour, with the sweetness of simple alcohol from simple sugars. Finishes toasted, even scorched but still very sweet. Highly attenuated, despite the high sugarcontent, warming; Not very interesting beer, unless it would really be an evocation of historical... I’d better shut up.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Little hazy darker yellow coloured with almost no carbonation and a small white head. Sweet yeasty alcoholic aroma. Full body. Finish is sweet, again with some yeasty-alcoholic little fruity hints. Nice brew.
