3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this at The European Beer Festival, Kobenhaven, 12-09-08. Punchy citrussy beer, real good and quit zappy. This drinks far too easily for the abv. Some orange and tangerine flavour’s. Strangely the aroma was nothing like I expected and if anything was a little cheesy?

Keg (One Pint, Helsinki)
Murky orange brown, small head. Crisp hoppy aroma. Slightly sour on the tongue - this was end of keg, I probably got the dregs. Gee, thanks barman (not Markku or Marian, I don’t know this one). Tingly carbonation. Rich malty taste, pleasant hops. A little soapy and a little vegetal, but still quite pleasant. Gingery and soapy hoppy finish. Quite solid. Would like a fresher one some time.

Hazy amber color. Nice aroma, creamy hops, caramel. Medium body, with a bit of alcohol punch, it has a good caramel flavor and strong bitterness, even if I like more sweetness, good hops too. The respectable minor sister of their Double IPA.
