3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a Maksimarket near Rakvere in Sept 2014. Pours a dark, reddish copper with a tan head that persists well. It has a delightful, fresh, fruity hop aroma (for a moment there I got Haribo gummy bears), then deepens into more earthy, spicy, and slightly caramelly. Taste is at first some crisp maltiness, then caramelly and in the end, an earthy, grassy bitterness. Gets maltier as it warms. Finish is not overtly bitter, but dry. Body medium, carbonation quite strong. I’d have loved the 5 Yakima hop varieties to dominate some more in the taste. While the aroma was great, the taste did not meet my expectations. Overall still a very good ale to down with a snack after a busy day.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - pours deep amber with a light brown bubbly head that gradually fades to a ring. The body is very lively with carbonation. Aroma of grassy hops, orange and coriander seeds. A little roasted malt and caramel. Taste is coriander seeds, toasted malt, grassy hops and lemon to finish. Mildly bitter. The taste is actually pretty disappointing in comparison to the aroma. Light body, lightly dry and high carbonation.
