Based on the brewery’s Summer ale from 2013 this brew is very similar but with a bit more punch on every aspect. Nice fresh hoppy aroma is dominating but the overall taste is still quite balanced.

Kauge (563) - 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 (300) - 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.

mikkopen (907) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 12, 2015
330 ml bottle. Hazy golden colour, thin white head. Sweetish citrus fruit aroma with notes of caramel. The flavour is malty, dryish, with plenty of grapefruit and a bitter, herbal hoppy finish. Tasty and refreshing.

mile (3314) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 9, 2015
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some citrus hoppyness, Body is medium, malty and dryish flavor, faint caramel and light fruitiness, citrus hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dry, faint caramel and fruitiness, lots of citrus - some piney hoppyness. Considering the bitterness/body this one is more like IPA than golden ale. Nice one - not too sweet.

Toomio (306) - Joensuu, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Vähän kirkkautta makuun tarvitsisi. Karvas se osittain on, mutta ihan hyvä tällainen Suomesta.
