Zarkam (532) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2015
330ml bottle, hazy light orange colour, medium frothy mostly lasting head, good lacing. Heavyish hoppy aroma of grapefruit and flower with some resiny hints and some grain and caramel in the background. Taste is initially bittersweet, turning into a long bitter finish, medium body, slick mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Nicely refreshing and sharply bitter ale without going overboard, could’ve maybe had a bit more aroma depth and a little more maltiness to back it up but anyways among the better craft ales from Finland that I had.

mtu71 (313) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle. Medium, white, long-lasting head. Misty amber. Fruity, very hoppy and malty aroma. Dry palate and edgy carbons. Resin, grape fruit and grainy. Good bitterness. Very nice!

Kauge (757) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2015
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 11/2015, and the ABV’s 5.6 not 6. Clear light amber colour. Head off-white, not very big, but leaves some lacing. Nice hoppy aroma - grapefruity, other citrus fruits, piney-resiny, sweet, and some thick, almost musky hoppy notes as well. Tastes of bittersweet fruits, maybe grapefruit and tangerines, some peachy sweetness and faint caramel. Sweetness and bitterness nicely balanced. Dry on the palate with quite some bubbling cutting through the dryness. Nice body. I see others have also noted that this is more like an IPA than a Golden Ale - I agree. Overall a very lovely beer, I’m positively surprised!

villevav (352) - FINLAND - APR 22, 2015
[2015-03-06] Kullankeltainen. Valkoinen vaahto, joka jättää pitsiä lasin reunoille. Tuoksussa paljon sitrusta ja aromihumalaa. Varsin rehevä tuoksu; vähän kuin humalapellettiä nuuskisi. Maussa korostuu humalan aromi samalla tavoin rehevänä kuin tuoksussa. Varmaankin joku amerikkalainen lajike. Runko keskitäyteläinen. Hyvin lyhyt jälkimaku, jossa myös hieman vetisyyttä. Kokonaisuutena mukavan keväinen sessio-olut.

Nummenrannassa 4/2015. Quite malty and strong golden ale, really tasty anyway.
