3.58/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

550 ml brown bottle with no freshness date. Sparkling clarity with a fluffy white that stick to the glass just fine.

Grassy and sweet aroma of malt with a light herbal hop in the back.

Easy going malt character, moderate body and carbonation. Mellow hoppiness that reaches the palate with more flavour than bitterness. Lots of grain on the tongue with a lightly sweet finish.

Its good to know that there are good organic beers out there, as for buying this again it is more of a novelty item. No great shake here, just a good drinking lager.

4.8/5  rDev +25.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Presentation: Great big 550ml custom brown Victorian pint bottle (a real pint), with old-style labeling. No freshness stamp. Organically Certified brew.

Appearance: Beer pours great, leaving a hodge-podge of different bubble sizes in a pure white, foam lace of a head. Colour is a clear, bright, pale yellow.

Smell: Clean and crisp nose, with light fruity, grain, floral and metallic aromas. Delicately aromatic.

Taste: A rich malty lager with a pleasant sweetness that is balanced, and complemented, by a mildly lime-like hop bitterness and floral flavour. Light, complex fruity notes, and a touch of watery grape-like character. Crisp, semi-dry, but an overall smooth mouthfeel and a firm body. Tame metallic and fresh bread notes pull through as the beer warms. Finishes just a tad dry with some trace grain and metallic flavours.

Notes: I can't remember a cleaner, fresher tasting imported lager. It's absolutely outstanding, and organic which is a big plus. I hope others follow suit and we all see more organically brewed beers worldwide.

Thanks to Merchant Du Vin for the fresh sample.
