2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Whittling down my backlog of ratings. First rating since August 2010. EithCubes - eat your heart out.
Can. Pours a clear, pale yellow body with a moderate, white, foamy head. Aroma is of musty, slightly stanky hops on top of sweet, candyish pils malt. A little spiciness from the hops peeks through. Candyish malt sweetness is up front in the flavor followed by some floral hops that are still somewhat musty. Touch of alcohol and faint bitterness. Medium-light body is slightly slick and has moderate carbonation. Lightly bitter finish. Overall not too tasty, but not terribly bad, either. Too sweet and musty to really be consistently drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
50 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK from Palmi via Iceland. Medium gold, very faint aroma of bright hops. Sweet with an immediate hope bite, then a further syrupy sweetness that transitions to an almost sour bitter finish.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Super clear with a nice pure white head. Flat malt on the nose with some hints of hoppiness but also some metallic flavours. Crisp with the merest tingle of bitterness then becomes thick, floury sweetness. Better than some in all honesty. I’d drink it in a few places if it were available.
