3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange body with a fluffy white head. Nose has citrus, pine and caramel. Taste is medium bitter with a pleasant mildly dry finish. Carbonation is medium and the palate surprisingly full considering the ABV. Reminds of the Keisari Route 66 PA. Not bad but pretty unremarkable.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5l bottle. This is a light blurry golden colored one and it has a small really bubbly quickly islandy white top. It has a really unique aroma. Hard to describe, but it smells really artificial and sweet. A bit like old detergent and lots of sweet wood syrup. Strange, not sure in I’m loving it. Thank god it does not taste like that at all. More like a English bitter then a pale ale with some drops of thin apple soup. The carbonation level is about average and it has a somewhat thin mouthfeel. Lots if bitter hops here, a bit of burned wood, flower water and minerals. Not to inviting, memorable or exciting, but fairly drinkable. 08.07.2013

In a hurry. Cloudy orange, nice head. Aroma is fruity hops, peachy. Taste is a hint of something metallic, followed by fruity and piney hops. A bit on the light side, but good for the abv. Pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bpttle from the Drink Shop in Tallinn, hazy gold colour, rocky white head, very citrusy somewhat perfumy/floral nose, lively carbonation, very mild malty sweetness at first quickly replaced with an excellent, very bitter hoppy aftertaste. Texture is a bit watery, which is the main annoying aspect of it, otherwise a very nice brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
4.2% bottle at Pudel, a clean modern looking place with good prices, a nice bottle list but few taps. A beautiful orange-gold pour with a slight head. Pine, citrus, herbal aroma. The taste is sweet, floral hops which is followed by a crisp bitter piney finish. A nice pale ale which is slightly I. The bitter side whichajes it a nice change of pace from beers in this part of the world.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Heila. Unfiltered. tall longlasting eggwhite head. Citrus, hoppy aroma. yeasty. Bitter citrus taste. Just little too light bottom and watery. 1 % more alcohol and we'd have new international beer.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. This one had unfortunately lost its carbonation. Golden yellow and clear. Obviously no head. Aroma is light, mainly grapefruity.
Taste is sour, citrusy with a bitter long aftertaste. Bit mild, could use some more thickness to its body. The carbonation could fix this though. As is, quite terrible but as this is ment to be, probably a good pale ale.
