Pleasantly floral nose with kiwi, rosehip and plain old lemon notes. Pours a hazy medium gold with a thin but persistant head. Flavour is big, bold and fat with juicy, spicy notes of pine and grapefruit underpinned by a hint of sugarpuffs. Very nice.

olio (6395) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2013
50 cl bottle.
Pours hazy copper color with a medium sized head. Aroma of mandarin, some tangy citrus fruits, pine needles, hops and caramel notes. Flavor of resiny hops, caramel malts, citrus fruits and mild goose berries on the finish. Mild bitter palate. Decent but a bit boring.

wimpyjoe (4346) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Deep golden with a small creamy head. It has a fuller bodied tropical fruit aroma and taste, so much so the nose is very sugary. Slightly soured.
