3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very, very, very good PL. Aroma made me not expect much, but the palate is quite surprisingly rich--yeasty, of course, but with some neat almost chocolate malt notes, plenty toasty as well. Fantastic for the style, another nice outing from Bruveris

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Biggish offwhite head. Clear deep yellow body with strong
carbonation. Strawy earthy wet wood and resin aroma with nutty
notes. Dry-sweet oily nutty earthy taste with resiny notes.
Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish resiny nutty
herbal aftertaste with earthy papery notes. Interesting and
unusual, and highly drinkable. Definitely has that Lithuanian
style to it. (0.5l bottle, from Stockmann, Riga.)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rather dark for a Pilsener, clearly more american style than traditionally German Pils. The taste has plenty of hops and some sweetness that makes it easy to confuse this with a Vienna or Märzen. Nice one!

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaske 0,5l. Påspandert og delt med flere under rateseanse på Tårnrommet 10 Jan 13. Lys gylden. Høyt luftig skum som varer en stund. Aroma av gress med innslag av frukt. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er tung fruktig. Litt mandler. I søtligste laget.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle by the courtesy of Stefan and Elisabeth. Near-white head mostly diminishing over a clear, dark golden body. Sweet malts and sweaty fruits to the nose. Dry apricot taste added by buttery malts. Mid-dry aftertaste. Strange kind of taste, in fact, but drinkable (shared at a rating session, Tromsø 10.01.2013).

Tap. Clear golden color. Tiny head, stays. Milky, malty, fresh aroma. Fresh, grassy, malty notes in flavor. Nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy yellow, small white head with filmy retention. Nose is sweetish malt with dusty walnuts, caramel and boiled vegetables. Taste is pretty close to the nose, with more pronounced dusty walnut notes and some more boiled vegetables in the finish. Thin to medium body, soft carbonation. Weird balance, not for everyone.

Bottled, from Stockmann, Riga. Hazy golden, mid sized head. papery and sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Mostly unpleasant cardboard, even if I have a very fresh bottle. No bitterness. Sub par lager.
