Beerheart65 (1005) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2012
Good medium strong aroma has roasted toffee and nuts. Freshness from hops. Colour is nice orange brown. Short head. Hopsy flavor has also nice maltiness. Dry and light in mouth, bit bitter finish. Medium carbonation. Overall quite good and tasty. Has bit of house flavor from vegetables when warmer but still ok.

hlkanga (204) - - JUN 25, 2012
500 ml can. Pours slightly hazy copper to amber colour with medium-sized off-white head. Fruity and floral aroma with citrus, raisins, sweet malt, cereal and barnyard. Taste of fruity hops, caramel malt and bread. Medium bodied, a bit oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation and long mild hoppy finish. Quite a good ale when you consider availability and price. Well-balanced and pleasant to drink but a bit simple and the taste could be slightly stronger. In any case a decent one.

mikkopen (856) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2012
500 ml can. Clear orange-amber colour, thin off-white head. Sweetish aroma of caramel malt, fruit and hops. The flavour is malty, with some fruity and metallic notes, and a bitter hoppy finish. Nothing special.

Tranquillity (1420) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2012
Canned, 0,5l. Light brown, small white head. Aroma of weak hops, taste a bit metallic but the finish is doable. Not bad compared to the peers in the store shelves - which are pale lagers :)
