Bottle shared with Joes and Dutchdrebus. Hazy yellow to orange color, small to medium sized a bit soapy white head. Very nice aroma of malts, fruits, hops and citrus. Taste lightly malts, hops, mandarin, bitter and citrussy. Low to medium body, medium carbonation. Very nice for this low ABV.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, golden brown beer with a medium, white and bubbly head. Lovely exotic fruity aroma. The body is watery which wasn’t a surprise considering the 2,7% alcohol strength. Really good for killing thirst. Quite strong grassy bitterness. There’s not a lot of sweetness. Very good in its own category but not very complex underneath its bitterness.

Tasted at BrauKunstLive! 2013 in München, Germany.
Their Fanø Havgus was a 2.7% Session IPA but so bitter as to be nearly undrinkable. There weren’t many beers I wanted to water the plants with this day, but this was one.

Draught at Pikkulintu. Pours murky brown yellow with small head. Very fruity aroma. Very fruity and bitter taste. Citrus notes. Pretty strong taste of citrus and hops nothing more and nothing less. With and ABV of 2.7% this one is really great tasting. This just proves you can make a great beer while also keeping the alcohol down. Never tasted a beer with alcohol level this low but tasting this good also considering that been tasting pretty strong beers before tasting this one. Surprisingly good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2013 Bottle. It pours an orange-golden unclear body topped by a small, off-white head. The aroma is peachy and resiny, with some maltyness in the back. Also in the flavor the malts are left in the back, it’s quite bitter and with a nice fruityness. A bit thin on the palate maybe, with nice a carbonation level and a mostly bitter finish. An easy drinkable beer, nice and tasteful, and considering the ABV it’s sure on of the best. 120525

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A slightly cloudy, orange beer with a almost medium and blond head. Aroma of temptating tropical fruits, grapefruits, mangos, some papaiyas and pine. Taste is quite strongly bitter, lots of grapefruits, pine, some tropical fruits, dry and biscuity malts. Surprisingly long, piney, bitter and grapefruity sourness. Light bodied, easy to drink, balanced carbonation. Very succesfully, low alc. % beer, lots of bitterness nice fruitness and the lightness isn’t bothering.

Draught. Pours hazy orange in color with a frothy white head. Lots of tropical fruits, some mango and peaches with apricot in aroma. Quite grassy bitter in taste with that same tropical fruityness beeing there as well. Would never had guessed this to be such a low abv. Great fruity session ipa. Great fruity tropical and slight bitterness in aftertaste.
