A malty pale golden beer with hints of banana and pineapple. An excellent balance of aroma and bittering hops followed by a long dry hoppy finish.

olio (6145) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2011
50 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden yellow colour with small white head which soon dissipates. Aroma is grass, buttery, almost potato-like maltiness, caramel and a hint of fruits. Butter, malts and caramel on the taste also. Very lightly hopped golden ale with a watery mouthfeel and a dry bitter aftertaste.

lusikka (6208) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2011
500 ml bottle. BBE 04/2012.
Pours a copper colour with a very small head. Aroma of grainy malts, honey and grass. Flavour of grainy malts, nuts, caramel and grassy hops. Watery mouthfeel with a mild bitter finish. Boring.

Miksu (4947) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2011
0.5 l bottle from S-Mestarin herkku, Jyväskylä. Copper color. The aroma is combination of resiny hops and nutty-caramelly malt. The flavor is a bit more on a malt side with caramel and nuts. Resiny hop flavor is restrained and bitterness is at medium. Light bodied, smooth oily palate with low carbonation, very drinkable. At first this feels a very nice session ale but at half bottle the character feels bland. More hops and less caramel would be truer to name.

Nimestä päätellen on armotonta humalalajikkeiden ilotulitusta luvassa. Olut kaatuu tuoppiini tumman kultaisena. Lasiin syntyy vahvoja poreita, mutta vaahto pysyy määrältään maltillisena. Ainakaan tuoksusta ei mitään armotonta humalapommitusta löydy. Sen sijaan sitruksista hedelmäisyyttä ja makeaa maltaisuutta löytyy. Täytyy ilmeisesti olettaa, että tuo sitruksisuus on se humalapommi sitten. Joka tapauksessa tuoksu ei jää keskinkertaiseksi vaan on melko miellyttävä. Maultaan ja suutuntumaltaan olut on hyvin pehmeä. Hedelmäisyys ja makeus on edelleen läsnä. Humalointi tuntuu pienoisena katkeruutena. Jälkimaultaan kuivan hapan olut. Jotenkin jääteemäinen. Liruu helposti alas kurkusta, vaikka aluksi näytti ainakin omaan silmääni melko kuplivalta. Kuplat sitten hävisivätkin nopeasti ja tässä kai sitten tulos. Melko miellyttävä tapaus, mutta taisi maksaa paikallisessa Citymarketissa lähes 6 euroa. On todellakin liikaa hintaa laitettu tuotteelle.

Kavu (2202) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2011
Pours clear amber with a low white head. Aroma is mostly malts. Flavor is pretty light and dominated by malts. A very slight hint of hops in the finish. Disappointing.

rosenbergh (6710) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2011
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Clear amber colour with tiny off-white head. Fruity English style hoppy aroma with fruity ice tea elements. Candy like sugar sweetness, some bitterish hops and sweet caramel malt in flavour. Sparkling.

Bottle from the Hogs Back Shop. Pours a deep golden colour with a thin white head. Plenty of malt in the aroma, with a hint of pineapple. The taste is all citrus, and finishes with a dry bitter finish.
