A premium pale ale with distinctive fruity taste. The beer is light in colour, and has a refreshing clean flavour, which belies its strength.

Clean amber color, small white head. Aroma of caramel, grain, grass, floral and spicy hops. Dry lightly sweet taste with medium bitter hoppy finish. Thin to medium body, average carbonation. Decent ale.

Kauge (1037) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle from Selver in Tallinn; BB 30 Sep 2016. Pours a slightly hazy pale amber with am off-white head. The aroma is malts and grassy hops; tastes grainy sweet with an earthy, grassy bitter tingle. Dry on the palate; medium strenght body. Carbonation pleasant. Not too interesting, but not bad either.

suurjuust (2236) - ESTONIA - DEC 25, 2015
Clear amber beer, medium white head. Nose is malt, grassy notes, hops. Flavor is a pretty simple combo of malts, corny notes, and grassy hops. Lingering hops with a floral edge. Crisp mothfeel. Nothing mindblowing, but an OK quaffer.

Crystal clear amber beer with white head. Floral aroma with some malts coming through. Nice malty taste finishes off with firm bitterness. Decent ESB.

thirstyrabbit (1581) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 3, 2015
Bottle. Dark golden body, small head. Clean malty aroma, not too hoppy. Resembles lagers more than ales. Taste has sweet grainy malt with soft citric hops. Medium bitter finish without anything interesting to savour. Just a pounding beer. It’s odd that this summer beer appeared on the locals shelves now in December.

Holmen2 (2463) - NORWAY - NOV 1, 2015
Backlog. From bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 25.03.15. Dark golden. Rough bitterness and sweetness in aroma. Pale malt and light hop in slightly sweet taste. Some bitterness lingering on in aftertaste. Round mouthfeel. OK (almost).

ChristianHR (241) - DENMARK - AUG 25, 2015
Smells fresh and slightly bitter. Pours clear amber with a white head. The taste is mild of burnt sugar, citrus and pine.

Mr_Pink_152 (2728) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2015

Kamikaze_A6M5 (25) - - JUL 4, 2015
Kullanruskea, kirkas, hieman samea. Tuoksu tuo mieleen kankaisen metsän. Alkumaku havuinen, pähkinäinen, ohrainen ja katajainen. Hiipuvat pikkuhiljaa pois ja suuhun jää kitkeryys pyörimään. Alku on suhteellisen kirpeä ja raikas, mutta päätyy paahteiseen, kuivaan ja katkeraan makuun. Lopputuloksena suuhun jää pölyinen heinäkasa. (31.1.2015)
