FatPhil (8595) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 28, 2008
Keg (Gallows Bird, Espoo)
Note - the keg version is almost always incomparably better than the canned version. Don’t have the canned version if you can instead do the keg.
Gold, thin head. Slightly creamy aroma, slightly gingery and mashy, but raw and a bit vegetal. Fizzy in the mouth. Taste matches aroma, again creamy, some tangy hops, but alas vegetal. Ditto the finish. It’s good that they’ve stuck a good punchy flavour in this, but I can’t get past the vegetables.

Draught at Old Brick’s Inn, Jyväskylä. Golden color with small quickly fading head. Malt and herbal hops in the aroma. Moderate maltiness, firm bitterness, herbal hops and notes of lemon in the flavor. Fairly dry, light bodied and highly carbonated.

begbie100 (181) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 27, 2007
Light orange colour, white diminishing head. Better-than-average aroma: fruity, sweet, apricots.Taste is suprisingly bitter with hops when comparing to aroma. Hops doesn’t seem to be that balanced. Better than your average finnish beer, though.
