Senka (426) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 29, 2014
50cl bottle. Pours as a hand pumped bitter. Beautiful clear walnut brown with fine bubbly head. Gently carbonated, slightly oily. Tasted like lemongrass and oranges. Slightly acidic finish. Not my favourite ESB, but is quite close to it. Previous bottle I tried 2 years ago seemed to be more softer, sweeter and less bitter.

jmgreenuk (4109) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from The Bryggeri, Helsinki. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is light malt hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a light malt, grassy, spice hop citrus bitter palate and a short bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very drinkable and very refreshing.

Alussa hop häiritsee hieman, keskivaiheilla maku paranee. Lasin loppupiolella hop alkaa häiritsemään enemmän ja enemmän.

Toomio (179) - Joensuu, FINLAND - MAY 23, 2014
Liian kitkerä kalkki juotavaksi. Ei ole makuaisti vielä tottunut tähän humalan määrään.

0,5L bottle. Pours murky amber with off white head. The head stays. Aroma is fresh apples. Taste: sweet and sour, malt, apples, and bitterness in the background. Overall well-made fruity brew, maybe a little bit too simple.

kustie (115) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Kauniin ruskean, kuparinvärinen olut. Kaunis vaahto, joka pysyy pitkään. Tuoksussa aavistus humalaa. Maku monipuolinen, aavistuksen sitruunainen. Hieman makea jälkimaku, karamellisuutta.
