Session IPA.
A beer lacking in alcohol can’t be really flavourful as well can it? Common sense says it won’t have a big aroma full of passion fruit and mango; it wouldn’t have a well rounded mouth feel and crisp bitterness and there’s no way it’d have satisfying IPA style depth of flavour…. is there? Think again, this is a beer totally devoid of common sense, the jester in the pack, a complete Simpleton…”

suurjuust (2236) - ESTONIA - JAN 22, 2016
Slightly hazy pale amber, medium white head. Nose is citric, mango, mild sweetness. Flavor is malty, very mild toast and caramel, water, malt, diesely hops, mild bitterness in the finish with mango. Lingering tropical fruit and hop bitterness. Has a few watery moments, but decent flavor gor the ABV.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2016 Keg (Speakeasy, Tallinn) (6:3:5:3:10=2.7)
Pleasant fruity hoppy aroma. Golden orange, tight head. Watery palate, carbonation crisp. Probably US ale yeast, as it has that plasticky stickiness. Lots of fruits, mango and peach. Sweetish. A bit boring and dead. Lacking malt, lacking beer.

I can see why I might not have liked it so much last time, but deep down it’s not so bad. Was recognisably beery this time, both malt and hops, and not too sweet. Palate light and a little watery, but refreshing.

Marduk (4780) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 21, 2015
Tap. Clear amber color. Small size, thin beige head, stays. Faint citrus, sweetish, faint pine needles and bit of saf- yeast in aroma. Pine needles, sweetish, mellow citrus in aroma. Nice long lasting mellow citrus in aftertaste. Soft bitterness and carbonation. Nice light body. Despite of low alcohol it doesn’t feel watery. Quite pleasant brew.

Had like 3 of this in a row at Speakeasy by Põhjala - that goes to show I must have enjoyed it, and indeed I did, despite the very subtle aroma and light, nearing watery body and flat carbonation. Fruity, tropical, grassy overall impression. My idea of a pretty nice random background beer to accompany some great music and friends.

martjoobolut (2102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 18, 2015
Tap. Pours golden with whiteish head. The small head stays for a second. Aroma is hoppy, fruits, mango, slight cat piss. Flavor is sweet and bitter, tropical fruits, mango, citrus, some popcorn. Body is very watery. Overall: don’t like the style (hoppy watery), so don’t really enjoy this one.

Baramba (620) - ITALY - NOV 18, 2015
On tap. Cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of tangerine and grapefruit, hops. Flavour is bitter. Very drinkable

teorn88 (5142) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2015
Backlog rating. Keg at BD Shepherd’s Bush tap takeover, London. It pours a clear golden color with medium white head. Aroma is freshly cut grass, pine cones, grapefruit peel. Taste is grassy crispy lemony, with light herbal tones and straw. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, quite tasty

ManVsBeer (6866) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Huddersfield Oktoberfest 2015. Blonde coloured. Has a fine citrus fruit aroma, but this is the best aspect of the ale given its horribly weak body.
