Tap (Cup and Pint, Turku)
Allegedly they’re just trying this one out in a few pubs to guage the reception. Grainy, crips, light refreshing. Slightly sticky, sweet fruity hops. Mid amber, small tight head. Quite a dry taste, very pleasant, nice old-world hops. High drinkability, I’d say sessionable, despite being full flavoured and characterful with all the hops. Dear brewers - please make more of this!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at "Irish" bar in Rovaniemi, Finland, 28.7.2012. Clear, orange-brown colour with a small, dense off-white head. Fruity aroma with hops, sweet fruits and light nuts. Taste is light sweet. Medium body, slick feel, lively carbonated - carbonation is a "bit rough" on the palate, maybe a little over-carbonated?
Finishes with English-style hops and sweet fruits. A pleasant take on the EPA style.
