3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Hazy amberish orange with a creamy white head. Aroma is rather malty, with some sulphurous dried fruits, even sourness, and clear herbal scent of possibly Tettnanger or Hallertauer hops. The flavour is very similar to the aroma, with malty sweetness. Oily palate and a herbal, sweetish finish. Better than I expected after the first sniff.

Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.
Pours an unclear golden orange colour with a creamy, lacy head. Aroma of grainy malts, dried apricot and some barnyard-like notes. Flavour of sweet grainy malts, grassy hops, dried apricot and surprisingly strong herbs. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and a smooth, grainy and herbal finish. Good.
