2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle from Alko Sutela, clear golden colour, smallish white head, grainy aroma with fruit and some citrus, taste is slightly bittersweet, light body, light bitter finish. Not bad, but never was a huge fan of the style and this doesn’t stand out in any way.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Zwanze Day, 2013 at Holy Grale in Louisville. Pours a clear gold with plenty of rising carbonation and a finger of white head. Notes of pale and cereal and biscuity malts, banana, straw, and grass. Usually don’t get banana in the style, but this one has a bit. Not too much, though. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, malty mouthfeel. Worked for me on a sunny day.

Drank from a bottle at a friend’s. Fresh and slightly fruity. A bit like a lager but better.

Probably the best beer I had on tap today at the vintage. First I wasn’t sure cause the smell was unexpectedly a bit off. First taste tho was this clean lager thing, well behaved and fresh. Smell then got better. Easy fun. Goodly co2. Nice stuff, well liked. Enjoyable, nifty thin tall glass too. Some orange or citrus lurking in the background. Yes, good overall beer tap experience.
