3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium offwhite head does not last. Amber body. Fruity floral aroma with malty notes. Powerful dry-sweet taste of floral resin with dusty faintly roasty malt notes. Sharp, harsh mouthfeel. Bitter dandelion aftertaste. A bit on the sharp side, and a bit lacking in depth, but still good. (0.25l draft at Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki.)

from crackedkettle.com - pours a cloudy dark red-amber colour under an elusive beige foam; nice lacing; aroma of litchies, almonds and cloves; initialy creamy mouthfeel but soon continues tart and sharply bitter; medium-bodied underneath; the finish is long, dry and very bitter with fruity and honeyish notes - a beautiful hoppy brew
