Bottle. Lemon, toffee malt, and orange peel aroma. Murky yellow-brown with small head. Bitter sweet lemon peel and light malt flavor. Light body. Okay but not much to it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle@pudel. Orange amber, dirty hazy. Malty, slight amber bready straws on nose. Some citrus. Med bodied, malty. Strokes me as an old/offy bottle. Doesnt taste like much. Sort of okish, no apparent faults. Just boring. Some pine in finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
quite unique aromas of plum compote, plum wine, a hint of wild strawberries and minty herbs with a woody undercurrent; all this with a stable retronasal revival, reviving what otherwise would be quite a fizzy, foamy, sourish, thin beer lacking smoothness, mouthfeel, (at least a hint of a) malt base. Or maybe this needs to be drunk quite cold, like: ice cold. Hm. Nevertheless a unique, light summer ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is spices, white bread, malts and light hops. The flavor is citrus, fruit/tea, mild hops, malts and a tart/increasingly bitter finish. One of the few times tea flavor in a beer isn’t a negative.

33cl bottle. As "Pale ale". Within its suggested best by date. Hazed golden pour. Aroma is herbs and sweetness. Flavor is sweet but herbal and a bit vegetal, not spicy though, feels stale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (Hopner, Tallinn, meet the brewer tap takeover)
Ewww, right from the start, I get the coconut I associate with Sorachi Ace, and dislike. Light palate, and aggressively carbonated. Light level of malts, some husks, some biting bitterness, and a little bit of spicy heat too. Tongue left with a tingle and a burn. The quirk doesn’t really press my buttons, and S.A. is a curse if I ever think I’m finding it. And CO2 too high.
