Half pint on tap@ half pint pub. Made by Malmgård brewery. Musty aroma and taste. Pale golden color. I expected much more from this. There is some smokiness, like rauchbier that just don’t fit to this style.

jjsint (2331) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2016
On tap at the One Pint Pub, Helsinki. 6.8%. Mid-gold with a large but quickly disappearing white head. Clear. Tropical fruit (mostly banana), floral and seawater aroma with a hint of sourness. Bitter taste with only a smudge of fruity hop sweetness. Unrelenting bitterness in the long finish. Watery body for the style and ABV. Good enough but I take a little bit of issue with the way it hangs together. The balance is slightly off and that ambrosial IPA experience is nowhere to be found. Still, go ahead and give it a go, see what you think.

Jyrsa (490) - - AUG 29, 2016
Tap @ One Pint Pub. Clear orange with small tan head. Citrus and grapefruit with caramel and hay. Grass and malt. Medium body with floury palate and a long, grassy finish. A tad atypical but does what it does quite well.

One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Keg. Almost clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry, decent fine carbonation. Dry pale malts, touch of grain. Dry pithy hops, dry orange, a little peel. Dry pithy finish. A bit too dry and lacking hop brightness, but it’s drinkable.

Giochaurand (422) - FINLAND - JAN 5, 2016

Scopey (12507) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Keg at One Pint Pub. It pours hazy golden-orange with a small white head. The nose is soft, doughy, grassy, cracker and light herbal. The taste is crisp, bitter, doughy, grapefruit, minerals, sherbet, waxy citrus, grassy and light herbal with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps a bit harsh, but not bad.

wiosna (591) - - OCT 3, 2014
0,25 hana@ OPP. Kermainen vaahto, sameahko kullanruskea. Tuoksussa mallasta, ehkä aavistuksen paahteista sellaista. Tuoksuu myös rehulta ja joltain makealta. Maussa mallasta, humalaa, katkeruutta ja hieman hedelmää.
