3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at vinarna hrozen today. from a freshly tapped keg, apparently mine was the 7th poured from it. anyways, took a long time to pour, came out a luminous butterscotch shade of amber with a massive, splotchy and uneven beige head. decent aroma of pineapple chinks, orange pip, cake dough. fresh and doughy - banana bread, buttery texture finishes fruity, lightly bitter. mellow and very drinkable

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Hotel Belveder. Poured a murky red (a bit ambery) colour with a nice medium sized off white head. Rice crispies in the nose and some jam. The taste is light, with a nice subtle fruity sweetness and some notes of wood and rice crispies. Quite drinkable, but can be improved on.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled at RBESG. Cloudy amber, small head. Restrained grass aroma. Sweet and light bodied with clean grainy malt. Salty and grassy, quite bitter finish. Somehow the word barley juice springs to mind.

Bottle at the RBESG08 Grand tasting. Alround rating: Malty beast, grassy and hay, balanced, but a bit unexciting.
