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.

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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper brown beer with weak and white head. Aroma is hoppy and aromatic, exotic fruits, mango and some sweetness. Flavour is also slightly fruitfull, some toffeeish malts, medium drying bitterness in the end, however, overally too light and short taste. Light to drink, but still quite nice. Lot of good elements, but overally this beer is too light and thus, good potential is disappeared.
