3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks for sending me this one, Jeff.
A: The pour is amber in color with a finger of fizzy off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing.
S: A very floral and perfumey nose to this. A bit too much grass for my liking in there with some bready malts and a touch of herbal hops. A little bit of citrus peel.
T: Strong citrus flavor, but it’s almost acidic. Plenty of floral and herbal hop notes with a light breadiness. The flavor seems a bit watery to me. Not a really strong flavor, even for a pale ale.
M: Light in body with a medium to high carbonation.
O: Sort of a disappointing beer for what is usually a pretty easy style to brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Simple sweet fruity aroma, pretty typical for an American-style Pale Ale. Candy sugary retronasals, again something fruity about it, but also a little earthy, some rusty iron. Otherwise, slightly watery body, and with crisp carbonation. Not much to this, it’s a simple sweet bitter with an acidic bite. A bit dead in the mouth, even though it’s bottle conditioned - probably because it’s too fizzy. I do like the bitter tingle of the hops in the finish though. Could rehydrate on this on a hot day.
