COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Huvila Pale Ale is clear amber coloured beer with an aroma that brings aromatic hops, caramel and grass to mind. The American hops that we have used in its production give the citrusy and hoppy taste as well as a long bitter after taste. Refreshing with an air of sophistication! It is available in selected shops, bars and restaurants all over Finland. It is also possible to visit the Malmgård brewery and buy Huvila Pale Ale on site. Since 2011, Huvila Joutsen is also available in shops in Estonia through Drink Baar.

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.

Mild, light as a lager with disturbing sweet moments when tasting. Excellent bitter palate.

jmgreenuk (4109) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Tap at Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is citrus, grassy hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a super grassy nettle hop pepper spice palate and a lingering grassy bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I think I found Finland’s Kernel!

martjoobolut (596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 11, 2014
0,5L bottle. Pours amber with white head. The head stays. Aroma is fruits, apples, grapefruit, and malt. Flavor follows the nose. Finish is resin and dry bitter. Overall: more bitter than regular pale ales, but not much else going on with this brew.

BitchPls (537) - FINLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Clear, copper. White head. Quite fruity and hoppy aroma for a regular pale ale. Watery body but not too watery. Quite strong grassy bitterness. This is actually more of a bitter than a pale ale. Quite dry, not too sweet. This is worth trying and a good beer for those who don’t like overpowering bitterness but still want that hoppy bite in a beer. I’m pleasantly surprised.

agent_persik (370) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 9, 2014
Clean golden color, small white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, toffee, grass, sweet floral notes. Taste has similar notes, sweet with subtle dryness and mildly bitter hoppy finish and aftertaste. Thin body and soft carbonation. Nice session ale, highly drinkable.

jinroh (317) - ESTONIA - MAY 3, 2014
Tap from Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours clear golden amber, nice head. Has some refreshing aroma, fresh grassy hops. Taste is beautifully hoppy again, fragrant hops are well matched with relatively weak - but nice - light body this beer has. At 4,2% this is a great session beer that also tastes good, especially from tap!

Finwe (412) - Grankulla, FINLAND - APR 17, 2014
500 ml bottle at the brewery, courtesy of the owner. Pours clear golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of citric hops with some floral notes and a slight hint of malt and grain. The flavour has medium bitterness, and a hint of malt. Dry, bitter finish. A high-quality pale ale.

Bottle from k-market, tuusula. Almost clear deep golden color, small white head. Aroma is bad, malty, metallic, no sign of hops. Taste is better, malty body, nicely bitter, dry hops, hint of grape.

mikkopen (820) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2014
500 ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden orange beer with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, caramel malt, notes of pine and grass. The flavour is dryish malty, with citrus notes, and a nicely bitter, dryish piney/grassy hoppy finish. Tasty and refreshing.
