3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Orange copper, hazy. A bit stale, english, hoppy nose: herbs&earth, mild grass, mild florals, a bit of slight murky malts (like ’näkkäri’). Body is bitter, has herbs, earthyness. Pale malts. Quite nice hoppy english ipa, even if the hops feel a bit tired/old. I’m liking the maltyness, even if it also feels a bit murky.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (Viisi Penna, Helsinki, Italian weeks 2013)
Simple mashy aroma. Pale, tiny white head. Simple palate, a bit watery and crisply carbonated. Simple grainy body, but nice spicy zesty hops, some pepperiness as it builds up. Light and refreshing, but the hops turn this into a very nice sipper. Could do with a bit more malty body.
