4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at ATG, Dublin. Hazy gold with thin white head. Loads of mango, pineapple and tangerine in the aroma: so tropical and fresh. Crisp biscuity malt in the taste - really highlights the great juicy tropical fruit in there, loads of mango and tangerine. Light citrus bitterness to finish. Crisp and dry. Stunning session ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of strong pineapple, grass and mild grape notes. Flavour of grainy malts, strong pineapple, white grapes, floral hops, grass and strong unclean retronasal grainy notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Refreshing but I was let down a bit by the unclean graininess.

Aroma is fruity and hoppy with mango and caramel. Flavour is hoppy and fruity with caramel, biscuits and hints of gooseberry bush. Some plastic notes in the finish. Good, kind of reminds me of Keisari 66.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost no head; hazy yellow-orange beer. Grapey USA hops, very fragrant, fruity and some resin, as well as valerian. Aromas turn out to be bit volatile, however. Hoppy, bitter, resiny. Lasting bitterness, but again the more complex flavours are fast gone. Some wet grain retronasal Obvious light body with its 3.7 % ABV. Lightly resiny-metallic aftertaste. OK, but I’ve had better contenders in the ultra lightweight category.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy, light orange beer with an only weak and blond head. Aroma is enjoyable and tropical, mangos, some papaiyas, also citrus and pine. Taste is quite strongly hopped, also some tropical fruits, lots of grapefruits and balanced pine needles. Taste is quite dry with biscuity malts. Light bodied that is too light to balance otherwise tastefull flavours. Easy and fresh to drink. Light and tastefull, tropical, citrusy and piney summer beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled at Cosmic Comic Café, Turku. Cloudy golden, small head. Huge aroma of gooseberry and sweaty grapefruit. Dry with light body and soft mouthfeel. Driven by NZ hops - loads of gooseberry and salty grapefruit. With its velvetty malt and pleasant dryness it is hugely drinkable, despite all the intensive hop flavours. Absolutely lovely!
