3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. An unclear golden beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of hops as well as hints of butter. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of both diacethyl and butter, leading to a dry bitter finish [5/2/5/3/9=2.4]
Bottled - tapped from the tank at the brewery the day prior to sampling. A hazy golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of hops, straw, and freshly cut hay. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of straw and medium notes of malt, leading to a dry bitter finish. The rating is for this version.
On day zero of RBESG there was a problem with the draft version of this - glad that there was a supply of a bottled version to give the beer some recognition.

Draught. Hazy golden colour with mediumsized white creamy head, leaves some lace. Aroma is yeast, some malts, sweet berries, earth and rather diacetylic. Flavour is quite much the same, and aftertaste leaves a grassy diacetyl. 7 3 7 3 14

Draught at Pĺ Besök; Per spotted this on our smallest pub crawl in Malmö, huge thanks!
Hazy golden color, with compact head. Wonderful delicate aroma of malt, with a cereal and straws Character, and a soft fruity edge. The mouthfeel is smooth; very good malt flavor, with a light crispy side, some caramel too, and a light grassy presence; the bitterness is quite bold, not very aromatic. It has some light residual sweetness and a pleasant fruity touch.
I have to get back here soon.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Koutland, Plzen. Grassy diacetyl. Real shame. Grassy hop like the filtered version, bit sweet and full in mouth, but the diacetyl kills it. Re-rate Bottle bought from the bar and drunk in my hotel room. A rather good unfiltered 12 degree beer with plenty of character and hop. Having had a number of these this weekend, this isn’t bad, in fact it’s just about the best except Pilsner Urquell.

Thanks to Ryan for sharing! Hazed light orange pour with a white head. Big bready malt aroma. Biscuit, dough, and honey. Floral hops, some cracker, apple, and yeast. Really great malt flavor. Tons of bread, biscuit, and sweet dough. A touch of honey, some yeast, floral hops, and a crisp finish. Very subtle bitterness.
