COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amplified kvass.
Named after the most famous export of the Slavic states, we’ve taken a very little known style, amped it up and kegged it for your drinking pleasure.

Kvass is traditionally made with Rye Bread as a way to use leftovers at home, fermenting on the windowsill, typically resulting in a low ABV, nutritional fermented beverage, and with herbs and fruit added for flavour.

But we’ve thrown that out the window it normally ferments next to and amplified it up to 4.7%. A small amount of strawberry, lemon and mint to contrast with the spicy notes from a huge amount of rye that makes this beer what it is.

MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2017
Draft @ Kompaan. Pours a hazy golden brownish beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma has notes of tropical fruits, strawberry and fresh hay, light spicy and some rye. Flavor has some fatty, oily rye influences, some red fruits and a very fruity yeasty note in ther. Carbonation is a bit high, balance and flavors are light. Not too impressed by this one.

Keg at The Great British Beer Festival 2017, Olympia, London. A hazy golden/orange coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, citrus, tropical fruit on the nose. Tastes similar, quite fruity and thin. I expected more from Tiny Rebel but it is OK.

minutemat (5814) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2017
Keg (!) @ GBBF ’17. Pours a misty golden yellow. Aroma is surprisingly fruity, some berry fruit. Taste is light, with strawberry notes, some mint, light spice, pale malt, light rye. Interesting kvass.

Marko (5889) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 26, 2017
Tap at Craft Room. Misty full golden body, not too lasting white head. Peach jam aroma, sweetish. Lighy thin taste, peachy sweet, earthy maltiness, nice, but flat and empty in the finish. Bit yeasty. Hmm. Gets dry. And estery, strangely so. Nice at first sip, but quickly gets rather non attractive.

Tap. Bready hop nose. Yellow gold body broken lacing. . Opaque but not cloudy. Soft carbonation. Medium sweet (strawberry) but that melds with the bitter lime to produce a definite bitter finish. Interesting. Wonder what is that final taste?

beer-yum (1836) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 8, 2017
Restrained aroma in a golden pour. Laid back hop forward balance with a spicy fruit bread body and clean finish. An interestingly different ’light’ beer.

BeardedAvenger (969) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2017
Keg at Craft Beer Co St Mary Axe, 20/06/17. Fruit cocktail aroma, with a sour edge. Opaque amber. Thin white head. A high note of sweetness before a bitterness kicks in. This gradually reduces in strength. Medium bodied. Water down oil. Light carbonation. Muted finish. OK but a bid of an odd mix, taste wise. Didn’t do too much for me.

2.7
Beese (3051) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Keg at BrewDog Soho. Kind of a rare miss for TR. Honestly, this sort of tastes like someone's not too bad early home brew attempt. Super hazy, which isn't a bad thing per-say, but the hop profile is really unbalanced. Lacks full aroma, and the aftertaste is really, really bitter. Astringently so.

3.4
Mr_Pink_152 (5265) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2017
Tried at the Craft Rooms. Lincoln. Hazy reddish orange colour with a white head. Aroma is light strawberry ice cream. The taste has strawberries with a creamy body that makes me think of Strawbeery ice cream in a glass.

3.3
HenrikSoegaard (14304) - Randers, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2017
Draught. Creamy White good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Moderate malty and light hoppy aroma. Strong strawberry notes. Moderate bitter flavor. Straberry still nicely present. Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate. I normally dont like strawberry beers but this is deasent. But a kvass? I dont think so.
