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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
