2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml bottle. Pours golden with medium white head. Aroma of citrus, grain and hay with some bitter notes to it. Taste is grainy and surprisingly full. Aftertaste faintly bitter and leaves a bitter layer on the tongue that doesnt come from hops. First sips were good but it oxidized fast.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Deep golden color, frothy white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma. Slightly strange hoppy flavor with a malty background. Pretty clean finish with some lingering metallic hops. Light body, medium carbonation. It’s not half bad for a low alcohol beer (rating is for the style).

Clear pale golden colour with big frothy white head.
Corn, grain and sweetish malts in aroma.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5 l bottle, thanks Sampo! Golden color. Honeyish malt aroma with hint of citrus. Dry flavor with honeyish malt, herbal hops and dry salty bitterness in finish. Light to medium body. Feels lacking but does not have those typical non-alcohol beer off-flavors. Quite good in this category.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a pale hazy golden colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of grass, grainy malts and corn. Flavour of mild grainy malts, cardboard, mild citric tartness, grass and some bitterness. Some unpleasant mustiness. Light bodied, watery mouthfeel, low carbonation and a light grainy finish with very subtle bitterness. A very light and somewhat refreshing beer. Lacks the off-flavours which are usually present in such beers.
