Tap@bd. Yellow hazy. Orange peel, citrus, greenery, grainy malts. Light bodied, dry, bitter. Stinging bitters, palate cleanser. Some yeastyness, bit messy. Not the most balanced brew, but sort of ok.

Kaataa vaalean kultaista valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu on mieto ja aromikkaan humaloitu. Maussa on greippistä humalointia ja katkeruutta. Kevyt, mutta ei liian ohut.

Draught. Hazy golden-yellow beer, nice creamy head. Tight hop aroma has citrus, a hint of mango and resins. Some fruity yeast aromas. Light and dry, bready/biscuity maltiness. Heavy bitterness, resins, some herbal notes. Light, fresh and not watery. Very refreshing.

fantti (720) - FINLAND - JAN 14, 2013
Hanasta juotu versio. Kaatuu lasiin vaalean kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, vaahto on niukka. Haju on hedelmäisen humaloitu (etenkin päärynää), keksinen, pihkainen ja puinen. Maku on hedelmäinen, puinen, humalainen ja hieman ruohoinen. Suutuntuma on hieman kitkerä, humalointia löytyy. Kokonaisuutena mallasrunko ei ihan täysin pystynyt kannattelemaan humalointia, tehden oluesta jopa hieman kitkerän.

laiti (5899) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2012
50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 16.02.2011
Aroma is rather hoppy with fruits, hints of hay and ash. Flavour is also very hoppy and dry with fruits, citrus and hints of resin. Watery finish. Quite straightforward stuff, but the hops are really nice here. Perfect after sauna -beer.

ration (1954) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 7, 2012
Tap pours golden with a medium head. Aroma hops grass. Thin palate. As expected a watery hopped lager. Not Bad.

mile (3092) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 9, 2012
Bottle. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some fruitiness and faint caramel, some citrus hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and dry flavor, lots of citrus - some piney hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and very dry, lots of piney and citrus hoppyness - bit sharp. Really nice dry IPA though flavor/finish lacks the fruitiness - aroma/flavor not in balance. Also in the finish hoppyness gets bit sharp/soapy. Could use more body.
