Dissapointed this is brewed with rice, a cheap imgredient in my opinion. Has a sweet aroma that reminds me of malt and straw. Pours a faint amber with a one finger head the disappears almost immediately. Has a clean crisp taste of malt, straw, grass, and a bit of caramel. This is an unremarkable beverage that will refresh alongside any dish.

Nose reminds me of mashed potato and spring onions; mainly bland but a little kick. Maybe mistaking potato here for Budweiser-style rice which goes into the brew. Has more grass, and less creaminess, compared to the hay of its stablemate, Svyturio (tried alongside) – but a slightly similar weak-tea-like taste going on. More interesting than a lot of lagers. I’d puzzle over it again.

Bardzo słabe piwo. Zapach nijaki, właściwie powinno się dać 1/10, ale dajmy na to że coś tam słodowego jest wyczuwalne. Barwa złota. Smak, co tu dużo pisać- jest kicha. Gorzki, i ta gorzkość się utrzymuje- nie jest to nic przyjemnego w każdym razie. Nie wiem, może trafiłem na feralną butelkę

Old tick. Not going to have again so a mini rating. Bland. Flat. Watery. Dortmunder/Helles has to be one of my least favourite styles.

kramer (5912) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear gold body with a small wispy white head. The nose is pretty decent, some doughy malt, light hoppiness, maybe a touch of sulphur. The flavor is pretty poor though, there’s a lot of sweetness in here, with a heavy cereal grain flavor. Just a minimal bitterness in the middle, finishing with more sweetness. Light to medium bodied with light fizzy carbonation. This one doesn’t do it for me, maybe this suffers from being in the bottle?

Moderate hay aroma. Cloudy amber, medium head, effervescent. Hay, honey, lemongrass, a bit on the sweet side. Medium body, harsh.

Piss water. Can from a mate. Very generic. Good if you are desperate. To be fair a solid percentage. May be better cold.
