Pale Ale.
A refreshing pale ale with six different hops from the US and New Zealand giving a complex citrus aroma. The subtle sweet malt flavour balances the fresh bitterness.

Flavor is moderately bitter, loads of citrus going on again. Nice, sublte bitterness in the aftertaste, rounds off the flavors. Good stuff.

Idiosynkrasie (4118) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2014
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, off-white head. Piney, resinous, herbal hoppy aroma, biscuity, caramel malty background. Taste is bitter, piney and citrusy hoppy, resin and lemon notes, malty body contributes... well, body; flat carbo contributes to a slightly insipid impression.

Hermod (3460) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2014
33cl bottle @ home. Best before Jan 2015. Slightly hazy, amber colored, thin lasting white head. Gooseberries, grapefruit, herbs in aroma. Flavor has nettles, gooseberries, grapefruit, hint of caramel perhaps. Really dry bitter finish. Quite aggressive. Gooseberries are quite strong here. Thinnish body. Thirst quenching. I prefer a cleaner fruitier profile though.

lusikka (6575) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a copper colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of grapefruit, gooseberries and some biscuit. Flavour is rather juicy with gooseberries, peach, pine, grapefruity bitterness and biscuit. Some slightly unpleasant yeastiness. Light bodied and chewy mouthfeel. A bit thin. Good drinkability.
