PowY (499) - AUSTRIA - MAR 4, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark golden with a large white head. The aroma is lightly yeasty and lightly malty - sweet grains - with a lightly fruity character. Medium body with a medium carbonation, a light sweetness and a light to medium bitterness. The taste is medium malty, again with sweet grains and dried pears, dried apple followed by a distinct hoppy notes with a surprising woody/paper character.

thellgren (958) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2017
0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is golden, clear and with a big thick head. Taste is sweetish, as expected, but also somewhat spicy, although the labels give the impression there are no spices involved. Quite decent blond bier, not great, but quite drinkable.
