3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Advent calendar #7. Hay on the nose, cereal and a bit sweet on the tongue, some bitterness in the finish. The style is so good for being the "freshest" tasting beer IMHO. This was fresh enough.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml green bottle from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Gold pour, small white head, very little lacing. Nose is grassy with grains. Taste has grain with grassy hops. Finish has a nice grassy note, mild bitterness. Average mouthfeel, well carbonated. Pretty clean lager, drinkable, but not really distinctive in any way.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Dec 7th Beer Advent Calendar. Brassy gold, clear, with a medium white head that retains well. Aroma is grainy with faint metal. Grainy palate, crisp and very clean, with low sweetness and a grassy bitter hop end note. More of a classic Pilsener to me; simple but clean and well made.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a crisp gold with a small white ring. Aroma is of malt, some light fruit a small hint of weak spice. Taste is much of the same with a weird bite throughout. This is pretty much what I chalked most euro lagers up to. This beer is better than an amstel or a Heineken but pretty weak for the early beers the cbac was gave the first 5 or so days.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dec 7 CBAC. The big names are gone and the quality is slipping as we get to the end of the first week. Crisp gold with almost no head. Thin aroma seems to have a number of elements just out of reach. Flavour is a hard earthy grain with some malt sweetness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From what I can decipher from the description this is a skipping rope painted with feet of helmet eyes. Ok, so my Austrian isn’t what it used to be. Sneaky taste says this ain’t a top shelf brew. Snorts - warm grains and warmth, light generic fruit and faint spice and general boredom. The flavour is equally pointless. Sweetish plain grain, light spice, dry faint bitterness, weak fruit. This is pretty much a waste of time and I’m finding it almost meaningless to finish off this glass.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle pours a golden color with a small white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy and grainy. Taste is sweet malts with some grassy hop bitterness that really bites the tongue. Light bodied with little carbonation. Nothing really good here.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 500ml. -from Jodl Graz. Pale golden coloured, small white head, slight grainy nose. Malty, bready and slight grainy with sweetish finish. Boring and (below) average. In regular shop or supermarket this should cost less than 1€, and definitely not to be so overpriced like it’s in Jodl (2.5€).

Bottle. Pours pale yellow color with average white head. Aroma is fruit, hops, malt and a slight alcohol kick. Taste is malt, white sugar, bit of hops - overall quite sweet. Aftertaste is a bit more bitter and dry.
