Pours a clear orange colour with a good size head (especially for an ale) and good carbonation.
Scent is very fruity and fresh, notes of citrus there.
Nice bitter flavour with some sweet fruit notes there too, not too complex, nonetheless a good ale.

Honeyish golden color, small steady off-white head. Honeyish, a bit leafy hoppy aroma. Light bodied. Dry woody hoppy flavor with light grassy notes. Dry, sticky bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite standard uninspiring real ale.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Cask at Kitty’s, Helsinki, 20110422) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma was fruity and mildly yesty. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, straw, mildly sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter and also harsh. A decent beer until the harsh finish killed the flavour.
