3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Yellow hazy. Pale malts, some yeastyness. Lightish body, but nicely balanced. A bit like the lager version (actually quite a lot), but with some more cardboardyness and yeasty spicyness to it. Pretty nice though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,33 pullo@ rantakylä. Meripihkan värinen, Sameahko. Tuoksussa makeaa mallasta, hitunen paahteisuutta ja hedelmäisyyttä. Maussa paahteisuutta ilman kuivuutta ja kitkeryyttä. Paahteinen olut ei kuitenkaan ole, joten sekoitan ehkä humalan tai maltaat siihen.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle. It is nice to experiment with beer, but it is hard to compete in the desired price range. Rather weak competitor. Unfortunately can be compared to mass produced beers in its simplicity. Nice to try, but I would hesitate to go for another bottle.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja food department (€ 2,85) in May 2014. Pours a deep amber with lots of flotsam; white, modest head. Nose is an incredibly disturbing yeasty sweet and sour. If I really try hard it kind of reminds me of sweet, home made apple compote, but then again, chlorine. Taste is grainy, hay, earthy old school hops and autumny overripe fruits (apples or pears). Mediumish thin body with a rather low carbonation, oily palate, dry and grainy finish. Maybe a tasteless lager guy’s ale, if anything. Probably the worst ’craft’ beer I’ve ever tried, I think it’s all around unpleasant. (BB date is 01.2015 if anyone’s wondering.)
