Cask at Kitty’s, Helsinki. Hazy golden. Aroma of kiwi fruits and mango. Mid dry with light body and soft, firm mouthfeel. Lovely elegant light malt profile that hides under a wealth of tropical fruit hops. Long bitter finish. Hugely drinkable hoppy light ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask at Kittys, 20120725) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was small, sparse and white. Aroma had citricness, tangerine, general fruitiness and mildly malts. Palate was medium bodied with almost medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, citricness, grass, malts and quite intense bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A very tasty brew with a bit poor looks.

50cl bottle @ home. Lightly unclear yellow golden color, full sized rough white head that leaves a good lacing. Smell malts, hops, slightly perfume. Taste malts, hops, bitter and lightly citrussy.
