3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a copper sort of color with a short lived cream colored head.
S: Certainly a strong bread character to the nose that is much of what the aroma is. A light note of grassy and earthy hops, too.
T: The flavor exhibits a fair amount of grassy and herbal hops with just a subtle bitterness. That said, biscuit and bread malts provide the bulk of the flavor.
M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation that gives the beer a bit of crispness.
D: This fits into the style well; light in flavor and easy to drink. Not overly impressive, but not bad by any means.

Clear golden/orange colour with a thin white lace. Quick dissipating head. Fruit malt aroma. Thin body, refreshing beer. Lacks a lot of flavour and substance.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was a keg, not cask, but I don’t see a cask version so I’ll put it here. Clear light amber, small slightly off-white head. Very very watery, some grain, light fruit, and a touch of hops. This is damn near water.

(Bottled, sampled 2010-01-08) Clear, deep golden with a small head. Nutty-herby hops in the nose with some caramely malt. Dry-nutty flavor with herbs, some harsh bitterness, mildly caramely, quite bland. Light body with soft carbonation. A typical, quite tasteless and slightly watery bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle from K-Supermarket Länsiväylä, Jyväskylä. Copper color. Fruity and resiny hop aroma with orange marmelade. Bitter and slightly sweet flavor with resiny hops, minerals and biscuity maltiness. Light bodied and slightly watery, suffers slightly from low gravity but this is still fairly good for a 3.5 % ABV beer.
