2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Semi-strong, sweet although a bit artificial aroma. Flavors of caramel, floral and some citrus. Hazy light yellow color with light white head. Not so strong a bit soapy and artificial taste with flavors of caramel and fruits. Some hoppy flavors, but could be more. Medium, mild aftertaste. Semi-medium taste spectrum. Concerning taste, the palate is ok. A bit too low carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the Kahdet Kasvot, Tampere, Finland.
Slightly cloudy golden colour with a small white head.
Sweet hops, hay, earth and dung in the aroma.
The flavour is harsh hops, malt and earthiness. Not very good. Far from it. Not very good value... 11 e for a pint.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Oluthuone Leskinen. Hazy yellow, thin creamy head. Peachy/mangoish nose, slighly herbally, yeasty notes. Dry grainy flavor, slightly watery finish. Ok hop bite, but lacks some flavor. Quite refreshing, frothy texture. Light to medium body.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle@5p. Yellow with haze. PunkIpa-y hoppy nose with currant leaves, green grapes, gooseberries. Thinnish body, quite dry, slightly watery feel. Good hoppy greens, fruity green berries, slightly bready pale malts. Lots of flavour, surprisingly much on the palate, and nice ones too. Canít get too excited though. Raw, rustic, somewhat unbalanced in a homebrewy manner. Good drink still.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at BQ via Losanna, Milan
Hazy light amber color with compact head. It has a mild but nice fruity hops aroma. Lean body; there is a good mix of hop fruitiness and manure earthyness; quite bitter, although the final present some chicory and there are not enough fruits and resins from the hop.
Nice, but a bit unclean still.
