Draught. Hazy orange in color, small whitish head. Ripe tropical fruits, lemony juicyness in aroma. Flavor has more of that tropical fruityness in it. Quite soft and smooth. Refreshing too.

(Keg at Pikkulintu, 20140426) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweet rye bread and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, malts, tangerine and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A good malty pale ale with pleasant sweetness.

Tap @Haand Fest. Cleer deep golden. Mid-sized blond head. Aroma of pineapple, mild resin and fresh toasted/bready malts. Soft and medium full. Peppey and bready malt base. Bold fruity and resinous bitterness. Plaeasant hop linger in the finish. Good stuff.

On tap at Haand Festival. An unclear, golden-orange beer topped by a small, off-white head. The aroma is piney and grapefruity, with a little malty touch in the back. There’s a decent bitterness in the flavor, a little spiced touch as well, but I guess that’s due to the rye. Pine cones and grapefruit from the hops. Dry, full to medium bodied and pleasantly carbonated. A quenching and tasteful beer, although a tad one dimensional. 130525

MikeKeller (933) - Kemi, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Draught @ Oluthuone Leskinen, Oulu. A bit hazy golden to orange colour with white head. Nice grape fruity aroma has piny and grassy hops. Sweetish malty and apricot fruity flavour has just about right bitterness. Rye lurking only in the background. Medium bodied and very delicious APA.
