2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours urine yellow with a splotchy, ugly head. The aroma was lemongrassy and hopcity, with pale malts present also. The flavor wasn’t bad, with a crisp hopc and citric presence coupled with a honey malt sensation. I’d drink this as a lawnmower beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy, light yellow gold, average foamy head leaving some nice lace. Fresh aromas of lemon and hay. Slightly sweet palate of pale malt with a touch of grassy hops. So much better than North America’s typical pale lagers.

500 ml bottle. Pale golden with a thick white head. Aroma of pale malt, fresh grassy hoppiness. Noble character is apparent. Flavour is well-balanced, crisp pale malts and a slightly bready finish. Decent bitterness. Much better than most in the category.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle @ Hoa Xuan Vietnam-Indian Restaurant, Tampere.
Pours a clear golden colour with loads of large bubbles and a large white head. Aroma of sweetish malts, flowers and grass. Flavour of sweetish malts, grassy hops, rice and weak spiciness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a light sweet finish with some bitterness. Goes very well with Vietnamese food.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured a clear bright golden with a towering cap of loose white head. Aroma picked up a fair dose of bready character with light spices, lemon, and nice floral notes. Flavor found sweet breadiness at the core with pleasant and mild floral bitterness eminating outward... some floral and very dry grassy notes round out the finish.. certainly solid for the style. Light-bodied but thick on flavor across the middle.. dry lemony finish. Thought this was tasty and every bit worth the $0.99 I paid for it!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light golden color with a medium sized soapy head. Interesting label on the bottle reminds one of the influences of India. Aroma is subtle but grass dominates. Saaz hops seem to be evident in the aroma but not in the flavor. Tartness is noteworthy and some honey can be tasted. It is slightly bitter, as well making a tart, sweet, bitter combination. I give points for that and anything in a pale lager that is unusual should be relished.
