Draft at Helsinki Bryggeri.
Head is mostly lasting.
Body is hazy medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread), moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with notes of kumquat, gum, kiwi.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.

Excellent stuff, and having just come from Franconia that’s saying a lot...for an unfiltered lager, this is the real deal.
