3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Clear thin looking deep golden colour with tiny off-white head.
Absolutely stunning floral fruity hoppy aroma with mild sweetness. Delicious. Flavour is also nice with bitterness and English style floral hoppiness. Moderate bitterness in aftertaste. It’s a bit thinnish but it’s 4% after all. Very enjoyable ale.

500 ml bottle. A golden beer wtih a almost medium and white head. Aroma is biscuity, honey sweetness and lemony hoppyness; quite fresh and nice aroma. Taste is simple, dry maltyness, lemons, slightly musty aftertaste. Light to drink, nice carbonation, nice and easy to drink. Good and basic Golden Ale, lemon gives enough of freshness.

I really wanted to like this but it just doesn’t do it for me - too rank and not a clear enough flavour.
