laiti (5405) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2014
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 05/2016
Aroma has grainy malt, bush leaves and some minerals. Feels musty. Flavour has gooseberry bush leaves, some grapefruit, minerals and grainy malt. Feels harsh and there’s some weird plastic off-flavour. Perhaps an English IPA - but an odd one anyway.

jookos (1907) - FINLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle. Very sharp citrusy nose with floral tones. Pale malty body, bitter, bit sharp. A very rustic and raw ipa. Clears your palate pretty well, but as such a bit harsh. Virtually no caramel softness, dry, hard hop bomb. Had this straight from the bottle though, warm, outside in the rain. Probably better properly served.

Brandman (2053) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Cloudy golden body, white head. Aroma has some herbal hops, light toasted malts. Bit grainy. Very pungent and bit unpleasant bitterness. Could be good but something rotten in the flavour brings it down.
