# 3250 ersma: ein weiteres viertel zum nächsten tausender ist geschafft. bernsteinfarben mit mittlerer verschäumung. der geruch ist cascade-typisch: grapefruit, etwas mango und passionsfrucht. der antrunk ist hopfenbetont, bitter, mit leicht fruchtigen noten von grapefruit, die ich nach dem geruch ausgeprägter erwartet hätte. die mitte ist recht bitter mit fruchtigen und malzigen anflügen. der abgang wird malziger, bleibt primär bitter. die flasche ist ansehnlich. fazit: die hopfenaromen könnten ausgeprägter sein, ansonsten für 4 volt erstaunlich viel geschmack. gut trinkbar. 10, 10,9,9,11,9 - 9,35 - 29/3/13

Slightly hazy honey, one finger white creamy head leaves nice lacing. Fresh aroma has bready malting and fruity hoppiness. Bit fizzy carbonation, thin feel and body, dry, bit bitter, fruity sweetness also, dry and bitter finish. Bit watery but would work in summer.

I tried this a few times, but it never delivered. It wasn’t awful, it just tasted like it had gone off - slightly flat, and funny tasting.

500ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Lovely fruity aroma, really light and sweet, there is some childhood sweetie memory there, something tangy and zingy. Slightly watery palate, but I guess this is only a 4% golden, I wouldn’t expect anything heavier (but it is certainly possible). Refreshing body, well balanced bready malts and citrussy hops. Gently sweet, but not sugary. Very pleasant organic graininess, much more character than a typical blond. Quality brew.

Clear, light copper ale with a foamy head. Hoppy aroma with a hint of citrus. The taste reflects the aroma, hoppy with a sharp citrus edge leaving a slightly hoppy aftertaste on the tongue. Very nice but the taste isn’t especially strong.
