3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Gallow’s Bird, Espoo. Poured slightly hazy goldenbronze with thin white head. Sweet toffee and sweet malt on the nose at first. Hay and some exotic fruits also. Sweet, toffee and very fruity tropica fruits in flavour. A bit of some mild spices also in aftertaste. Very light hoppyness in finish.
Bottle from the Mill, Cambridge. Dark gold, cloudy, no head to speak of. Aroma has passionfruit, loquat, chamomile tea and a pronounced biscuity quality. Sweet fruity taste, but the malty character is never very far away. Long and complex bittersweet finish with a chewy savoury note. Thick body for the style. Low carbonation. A tasty beer and a treat to drink. Iznogud (4030) - CROATIA - JUL 11, 2017

330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 31.5.17
Pours an orange gold body with uniform haze & small white head.
Malty aroma - bread crust, dough, earthy spice, touch of almost apricot character - yeast driven!?
Full body, sort of chewy maltiness about it more akin to an ale, low carbonation aids this.
Toasty sort of malt body - reasonably sweet bread crust & cracker biscuit, flint/slatey earth character these, slightly cellar like even, touch of dried herb & apricot with a firm bitterness to finish.
Not a bad drink, interesting style of beer I really need to find more examples of. biir (1489) - Berlin, - MAY 6, 2017

UPDATED: APR 27, 2017 Bottle. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is bready, buttery, juicy malts, pears, a bit honey, herbal hops. Taste is juicy malts, fruity, apricots and pear, vanilla, again herbal and honey with some butter, noticeably hoppy finish. Quite low carbonation. Nice one, could just need a touch more carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2017 Bottle. Quite classic German style lager, mixing equal parts of honeyish maltiness and sweetness and neutral grassy herbal hops character and bitterness. Rather thin bodied and moderte carbonation. Relatively easy drinking up to a point. Overall good. daje (4436) - NORWAY - APR 18, 2017

330ml bottle BB 31 May 17. Murky golden amber, almost no head. Muted aroma, but swear I can smell pineapple. The taste is quite fruity for a lager - pineapple and a little papaya, some grass, quite a bit of residual sweetness. Light bodied, very low carbonation. Quite disappointing. jonas (7757) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
