JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - SEP 17, 2013
On tap at Mondial de la Bière Mulhouse 2013. Gushed, cloudy amber with a large foam head. Aromas: apricot and cereals, hops but also dust and an unpleasant cardboard note. Too carbonated, not drinkable enough for a EPA, finish is short.

lusikka (6550) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Almost a gusher. Pours a cloudy amber copper colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of sweet mango, apricot, grass and weak grainy notes. Flavour of sweet sweet mango, some caramel, dust, ashtray, grassy hops and weak floral notes. Also, some unpleasant cardboard notes. High viscosity. Medium bodied, high carbonation and a foamy mouthfeel. Finishes sweet, floral and quite strong on apricot jam. Too sweet and jam-like. Not at it’s best anymore I think.

Color: nice hazy blond beer with small carbonization and small white foam. Smell: hops, wheat and floral/herbs nose. Taste: strong floral and herbs taste with nice equilibrium of bitterness. Aftertaste: floral, sugar and bitterness.

VastActiv (3079) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle 0.33l at Viisi Penniä, Helsinki. BBE 02/2015. Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, hops and some malts. More like APA than EPA.

FatPhil (9616) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 6, 2013
UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 330ml bottle ( Viisi Pennia, Helsinki )
Super fruity hop aroma. Canned peaches, complete with the syrup. Some pineapple too, tinned too, obviously, and with its syrup as well. Fairly watery palate, decent carbonation. Rather simple aromatically hops in the taste too. High drinkability, but quite a simple formulation. Nice to see some bottle conditioning, and a slight haze, unlike some fake punks. Bitterness quite pungent almost acrid, but as you’d expect from a modern IPA. Once a bit of crud is in the glass g the palate is fuller. There’s a more bready grain aspect too. For supermarket strength this is very good.

tiong (4018) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 19, 2013
330ml bottle @ Viisi Penniä, Helsinki

Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of musty hops, grass, hints of gooseberries. Taste is hoppy, slightly fruity with notes of gooseberries, grassy hops and caramel. Finish is dry and bitter with some smooth maltiness and hints of grass. A bit light bodied, but quite hoppy for an English pale ale.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 02/2015, at Oluttupa Viisi Penniä, 20130419) The beer poured cloudy and golden. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, citricness, berries and pine. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, citricness, pine, berries, white bread, malts and bitterness. Afteraste was bitter. No way this is an English Pale Ale. The hop profile points directly to USA. A nice beer with unpleasant berry sidenotes.

RexTalionis (2614) - FINLAND - APR 12, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 02/2015. Pours slightly hazy copper in color with white bubbly head. Fruity citrus with some light floral and perfumey notes as well. Grassy bitterness and soapy notes in taste too. Has a midbitter aftertaste though. Easy to drink, but the soapy notes lowers the score a bit.

hazewee (40) - Andenne, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2013
Robe ambrée, mousse et bulles légères. Nez engageant avec des notes de zestes d’oranges confits. Bouche : attaque sur une amertume délicate, assez ronde ensuite. Finale sur des jolies notes pamplemousse. Houblonnage et amertume bien dosés sans excès. Beaucoup de caractère pour un très faible degré d’alcool (cette bière peut "mettre une claque" à pas mal d’IPA). Bravo !
