lusikka (5937) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 9, 2012
330 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma is lovely fresh and floral with sweet exotic fruitiness. Flavour is quite extreme for such a low ABV beer; rich with strong floral hops, grapefruit, sweet mango and some pale malts. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a high bitter, tangy finish. Light and refreshing, just as it should be. A top-notch low alcohol beer.

laiti (5414) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 07.12.2013
Aroma is hoppy and slightly sweet with exotic fruits, especially mango. Flavour is rather hoppy too. It starts with exotic fruits but unfortunately turns rather quickly towards the ashy, vichy‐like feeling typical to beers with this ABV. Still probably the best low‐alco beer I’ve had.

TBone (12329) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2012
Bottled 330ml (Beer Hunters)
Hazy orange color, small white head. Fresh hayish hoppyness with notes of pineapple. Light-bodied. Fruity, slightly grapefruity with some pine needles. Of course watery, but very tasty for this ABV. Perhaps the best low alco "IPA" I’ve had.

tiong (3611) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2012
330ml bottle from K-Citymarket Sello

BBE 07/12/13 - Pours lovely golden yellow with a foamy head. Aroma has a lot of grassy and fruity hops, some malts and spices. Taste is has a lot of hoppy notes, but little malts to back them up. Some soapy and lemony hints as well. Finish is light and musty with some fruity and bitter notes. A bit unbalanced, but still quite impressive considering the low ABV.

grunx (367) - - JUL 24, 2012
Bona textura i amargor amb menys de 2 graus. Llŕstima que la falta d’alcohol li dóna un final aigualit i sense cos en boca.

jmgreenuk (4006) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2012
Draft at the Bishops Arms Copenhagen. Just what I needed on a hot summer afternoon. The bar tender insisted I taste it first as she didn't think I'd like it, but she was wrong. The taster seemed a little sour but that quickly disappeared. Fruity aroma with a grapefruit flavour and a hint of bitterness. Very refreshing and I'm looking forward to the next one! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
