3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Vague hoppy aroma, sweetish malts. Has all the dullness I associate with beers described as APAs. I’d even go as far as saying it’s dishwatery in the mouth. However it’s cold. A little bit of warming and swirling later, and it’s a much more spicy - sweet and zesty, cut mixed peel. Quite thin and fizzy palate. Easily drinkable, but dull, and way below what I expect from Beer Here.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear orange beer with a nice creamy head leaving lacing on the glass. Hoppy aromas of pines and sweet exotic fruits, maybe mango. Also a pretty sweet aroma. Taste is mostly sweet and bitter with a long, dry, licoricy bitter finish. The body is medium full.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Schouskjelleren. This is a light blurry golden one and it had a heavy lacing and somewhat lasting small off-white head. Lovely fruity and sweet nose. This is the hop mixture that im really in to. Fresh peachy-sweet with lots of citrus and some frozen strawberries. Not as fresh and tasty on the taste however, as it’s more earthy and a tad to old-bitter to be really lightdrinkable. It has a nice light oily mouthfeel and a average carbonation level. Watermelon syrup with traces of grapefruit zest and bitter pomelo. It’s hurting my tongue in a way. Strange, as I can’t remember a beer doing that before. A little bit of cucumber and really butter nuts-gone-bad in the slightly yeasty finish. Finally a beer from Beer here I’m not utterly in love with! Woohoo! 24.05.2013

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head. Light fruityness in aroma, feels almost tropical
at some times. Also a bit of hay and grapefruit is present. Fresh grassy notes appears later on. Subtle
grassy bitterness in taste, bit of mild soap and floral notes too. Refreshing and has a nice bitter
afterpunch to offer. Soft and no sign of harshness, nice one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(on tap @ Café Habengut) Pours a slightly hazy amber with medium, white head. Decent retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is malty with notes of bread. Medium to light body, soft carbonation and a grassy, bitter finish. Flavour has more of the hops making it moderately bitter with a little sweetness upfront. Tasty but could probably be more fresh - at least I would have enjoyed more hop presence in the aroma.
