50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 11.12.2010
Aroma is somewhat fruity with hops, some hay and grain typical to golden ales. Flavour is rather hoppy and fruity with some grapefruit, citron, biscuits and hints of grainy malt. Refreshing and very good beer in this style.

Drinks like a session ale but at 5% potentially dangerous! Lovely crisp bitterness with some grapefruit and pineapple notes, clear blonde and shortcake malt in the finish. Perfect level of carbonation and retains foam head down glass.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ The Wharf. Clear yellow pour with modest bubbly head formation. Aroma is mainly hoppy - cat piss, orange, pineapple, passion fruit, melon. All that is amarillo. Lovely. The taste is awesome. Pungent fruitiness from the amarillo hops, citrus, grapefruit, a lovely level of bitterness - just enough to make itself noticed and to balance out, but little enough to really accentuate all the amazing tasting notes of the amarillo hop. A lovely showcase of one of my favorite hops.

Cask at CP&K. It pours clear amber, with a small white head. The nose is floral, mango, orange, passion fruit and white grape. The taste is orange, lemon, soap, floral, mango, white grape and passion fruit, with a solid bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Great balance. Flavoursome and very drinkable. This really is as good as it gets for this style. Great stuff.
