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.

Pretty bitter stuff this one at start. Would need some more fruityness to balance it out. Nevertheless pretty decent. Loads of summery things going on in this. Reminds me of when the weather was warm while lying on a beach eating some fruits and drinking some sort of a citrus drink.

Hazy straw yellow beer with white head. Aroma has black currant, hay, peach, resin and grapefruit. Flavor is malty, peachy, grapefruity and resinous bitter. Palate is quite thick with medium carbonation and heavy bitterness. Finish has heavy bitterness. Aftertaste is grapefruity with resin some blackcurrant. Decent, I’m not fond of the black currant.

Tap@brewpub. Golden, light hazy. Nice light honeyish, delicately hoppy nose. Elegant greenery, citrus. Lush pale malts. Everything just screams fresh, good ingredients. Med light boodied, has bitters, hops, but blends well with the golden malts. As with a lot of other beers I’ve had at this place, just the freshness and feel makes the beer deserve high scores regardless of taste. In that respect, this is ok. I would rather have a pint of their weiss though, but this, hoppy pale ale, isn’t too bad either.

Draught. Golden in color with a thick and frothy white head. Citrus and summer meadow in aroma. Bitter grapefruityness in taste, notes of sweetness as well. Garden fruityness appears later on. Nice tasting, feels crisp and refreshing. Bitter in aftertaste.

oh6gdx (21326) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 8, 2014
Draught@HBF2014. Golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is mild tropical fruits along with some bready and grassy notes. Flavour is tropical fruits, nectar, mild sweet malts, some bready notes as well as quite big herbal/grassy bitterness in the finish. Decent although the hopping itself clashes a bit.

Draught at the Bryggeri, Helsinki, Finland.
Clear orangey golden colour with a tiny white head. Fruity hoppy and malty aroma. The flavour is grassy, piney and fruity hoppy with balancing maltiness. Quite nice strong golden ale. Very drinkable.

Tap @ brewpub, 20/04/14. Pours a golden yellow orange with a small, white head. Aroma is a lot of hoppy fruitiness of the tropical kind. Guava, passion fruit, grapefruit. Taste is fruity, dry, a whole bunch of grapefruit as well as other tropical fruits. Guava and passionfruit. Some sweet and fresh pine. Fairly full with quite a bit of carbonation. Really refreshing and nice.
