3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle @ Konttori, Tampere. Pours a cloudy orange colour with a large white head. Aroma of floral hops, grass and some unpleasant barnyard notes. Flavour of pale malts, floral hops, grass, off-flavours, caramel and strong fruitiness. Medium bodiefd, slick mouthfeel and a very fruity and bitter finish. Off-flavours ruin this.

Draft. A bit cleaner than the english yeast tried alongside it, just a basic ale.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle shared with Finn. Huge off-white head leaving crocheted lacing behind. Orange coloured body with a slight haze. Floral hoppy aroma, hints of peach. Fruity flavours of peach, apricot and orange with vague malty sweetness beneath leading to a rounded bittersweet ending. Fine bodied. Likable, not too exciting though (Tromsø 10.12.204).

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 Bottle: Slow gusher. Hazy orange body with a frothy, lathery beige head that disperses quickly on top. Aroma of mild grapefruit, melon, tropical mango, caramel malt sweetness, & some stale floral bitterness & spice. Flavor leans more towards the floral & bitter side. Almost botanical. Small hint of white pepper covered citrus rind. A bit of grapefruit combines with the slightly toasty & caramel malt for a finishing sweetness. Hints of orange peel & stale toasted malt in the aftertaste. Seems a bit old or stale, though it should be fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweeter and smoother than the Lager one. Some more citrus aromas. More aleish than the Lager one, which was a strong Pils. Feels more natural.

12 oz. bottle shared with my wife from notes. Pours a hazy darker orange/golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have citrus, pale, bready malt, lightly toasted, a splash of caramel, a hint of vanilla, drier finish, just ok.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"Outside of the sours, probably the most aggressive yeast of the bunch. Kind of worked with the hops used. Toasted oak and fruity citrus hops. Not bad (none of em were)."
