Hermod (3283) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2014
33cl bottle from CM, Sello. Amber colored beer, thin white head. Nice fruity hoppyness in aroma, citrus, some toffee. Flavor has toffee, cookies, wood, sweetness. Slightly cardboardy finish, dry. Despite the finish, a tasty golden ale, something here I really enjoy, can’t put my finger on it.

jookos (2274) - FINLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Tap@wka. Clear copper. Meadowy floral, honey. Some earthy herbs. Light bodied, bready light caramelly malts. Dry finish. Hm, feels a lot like a real ale on co2. Probably a lot better without the carbonation.

mjs (4622) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2014
(Keg at William K Annankatu, 20140829) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had sweetness, earth and malts. Palat was medium bodied and fizzy. Flavours were malts, earth, sweetness, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Nothing American here but strong English hops according to my brain. Too fizzy.
