2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle (Gallows Bird, Espoo)
Misty orange, small tight head. Slightly rubbery, slightly milky, aroma, really not much there at all. Plasticky-ish dull sweet mashy taste. Smooth sweet palate, a bit slick. Some bitter hopping, but utterly lacking in any life or zing. Desperately boring, I’d say this was dreadfully underattenuated, there’s way too much residual sugars. More effort was spent on the label than the beer, methinks, and even the label’s desperately boring.
Earlier Rating: 7/27/2013 Total Score: 2.8
Soft, sweet, simple, and smooth palate. Lactic hints probably contribute to that. Some cardboard. Finish has some wooliness. Not saying "ale" at all to me, more like a dark ESL!
Rerate: 330ml bottle (6:3:5:3:11=2.8) as "Eckero Line Poyta Olut"
Pale orange, small tight head. Fruity hoppy aroma, citrussy new-world hops, some sweet light malts too, more aley than last time. Taste is just as lagery as last time, simple sweetish malts, some slight seared fatty hoppy bitterness, pleasant aromatic fruity hops too. A bit gutless, but not unlpleasant at all. Like an APA with the nastiness removed. Slight improvement on last time.

Draught. Yellow hazy. Nose is quite hoppy; greens citrus, some flowery/perfumy notes. And caramel, some yeast. Body is med light. Bitter, greenish hoppy with a bit of earthy, citrus, flavours. You can definitely feel the stallhagen in this. The hop profile made me think of fairy (dishwashing liquid), which sounds bad, but wasn’t. Quite ok, bitter pale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 6.0% as Stallhagen Pale Ale. Caramelly hoppiness in the nose. Almost clear golden colour. Good stable creamy white head. The flavour starts off sweet and teaish and later comes a mild bitterness and a faint hop bite. Definitely on the malty side, but not bad. Very late hop bite in the aftertaste.
