3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22-OCT-2013, bottle @home, from Mikkeller & Friends. Quite cheap. Clearly marked down. Why? Too old, perhaps?
Dark, dark golden or rather amber with with lasting tan head.
Aroma is clearly dryhopped with grassy notes. But also tired madeira elements on a very malty body. Taste is very malty and sweet.. Grassy, grape fruit. Touch of pine. Very bitter. Very citrus driven hops.
Above average body, medium carbonation. Would have loved this when fresh, I am sure:-)

330 ml bottle. Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland.
Clear deep golden amber colour with a small white head.

Not very tasty. Too much caramel & candy.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaske: Gul uklar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er mærkelig urtet med en smule malt. Smagen er også urtet på den rigtig ufede måde. Drikbar øl men bestemt ikke nogen nydelse.

Very good and balanced India pale ale, quite easy to drink anyway. Not very memorable but absolutely enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bit too sweet and malty, decent piney aroma. Dark amber, bit sticky after a while. Quite floral and bitter, not much citrus.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
a malt driven IPA that lacks much hop aroma and flavour. It is like it was there and it has been baked out. The only bottles I have had have been fairly oxidised and not the freshest. A IPA that tastes much better than the US aged imports but not Australia’s finest. Malt sweetness, low hop aroma and bitterness prevail

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle@ahven. Amber clear, chestnut tones. Malty slightly sweet caramel nose with some nuttyness and herbal piney hops. Full flavoured body, dry, well bittered. Not harsh though, feels just powerful, packing a punch. Real nice body and flavours. Good start to these aussie weeks here.
