Tap @Bruuveri 9.11.2011. Poured hazy amber color with a frothy white head. Pine and fruity hoppy aroma. Flavor has grapefruit and sweet fruity notes along with some berries towards finish. Bitter finish. Medium bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Quite refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught@Bruuveri in late Nov 2007, shared with mto during the "Sahti on the tastes so much better on the streets". Hazy nut brown/deep ambery colour with small off-white head. Aroma is yeast, some strawberries and raspberries along with some grainy notes as well. Fruity and berryish flavour along with some yeast and mild spruce in it as well. Biting carbonation. Rather strange IPA...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught@Bruuveri, rated a few weeks ago) Very murky medium amber with a large and lacy, but quickly fading head. Aromatic-hoppy, strawberry-fruity aroma. Berryish, quite hoppy flavor, but no real hop bite in the finish. Mostly aromatic, not bitter hops. Served very cold, but still not watery palate. Medium carbonation. A quite smooth and easily drinkable, aromatic pale ale. Not quite an IPA, though.

Draught. Very good aroma, looks like a typical pale ale. Very silky and smooth on the palate. Extremely fruity, pineapple comes to mind.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit hazy nut brown color, small off-white head. Strong fruity-sweetish (strawberries) hoppy nose. Good malty IPA but quite fizzy (carbonated). Sweetish-fruity hoppyness with some pineneedles and resin in it. Quite close to some Stadin Panimo’s brews - no suprise as their ex-brewmaster brewed this batch.
