2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, bread, caramel), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a light note of solvent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A step up from the Klassic (better aroma for sure), but still industrial, grainy, and fizzy.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Amber hue with a soft creamy head, good lacing and a mild dryish malty aroma. Light to medium bodied, caramel malty flavor, some molasses, almost cloying with some alcohol and bitterness in the finish. Not the freshest in the world but still drinkable-probably pretty good when fresh.
