Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, sweetness, fruitiness, malts and bitterness. Afteraste was sweet, hoppy and bitter. Alcohol was well hidden and drinkability was way too good. The aroma was not so good unfortunately.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Beer Hunter's, Pori, Finland.
Cloudy amber colour with an average sized light tan head.
Intense fruity, mild resin and piney hoppy aroma with balancing maltiness. Nice. The flavour is much more malty and sweet. Strong resiny hops, some bitterness. Alcohol is present but not that strong. Balanced but sweet.

Tap (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Kekri2012) (6:4:7:4:13=3.4)
Had this twice. The first had sweet malts and fruity hops, but tons of swimming pool - chlorine and chlorophenols. Very smooth palate. No sign of 9% at all. Finish was dry and bitter with a UK-hop bitter bite. More swimming pool in the finish. Later in the day, by about an hour, there was no swimming pool at all, so it may have been dodgy pipes. Scrapping earlier scores, and just going with my final ones.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Gallows Bird Kekri 2012
Pours dark orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of fruits, grassy hops, pine, gooseberries and caramely malts. Taste is malty and sweetish with a lot of gooseberries, fruity hops, grass, pine and caramel. Finish is sweet and malty with some fruity hops and gooseberries. A bit too sweet and too heavy on the gooseberries, but otherwise quite tasty.
