3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber gold with a medium sized white head. Soft spicy hops on the nose, a touch of earthy breadiness. Sweeter than expected, but still nice. Thick sweet malt and grain backbone, nice body to it. Medium bodied, gets a touch grainy. Nice earthy hop notes. Gets a nice bitterness on the finish. Easy drinking, fairly sessionable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught@Pikkulintu, rated 2011-09-04) Hazy golden with a small, lacy and lasting head. Orange, peach, citrus, pale malt in the nose. Oranges and peachy-fruity smoothness in the flavor, but unfortunately the finish has a bit rough and acidic bitterness. Quite light body with low CO2. Drinkable, but somewhat lame, low-ABV, fruity APA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a short lived head. Hoppy aroma. Flavor is somewhat watery with a faint hop bite. finish is bland. Overall an underachieving APA that leaves little to be desired. Cool label.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This had a clear straw/gold body with a modest, but lasting, head and left plenty of lace. The aroma was grainy with some citrus notes. The flavor was citrusy, mildly bitter, and balanced well with the pale malt sweetness. Easy drinking and quite sessionable.
