Canned. Hazy brass, fluffy head. Fruity nose. Peaches, grassy bitterness. Light, but the hoppiness lasts a long way. Grapefruit, herbs. Very pleasant session beer, nice to see this distributed in cnas.

Due to a social interaction I have just very limited amount of attributes listed: nice grapefruit hops, noticeable dryness. Feels like its changed on the way.

From tap. Hazy golden color. Could wish for a longer lasting head. Hop aroma are mostly citrus and some pine. Hop dominant taste, thin body. Very drinkable but yet potent for the ABV.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tuoksussa aavistus sitruunaa, ei erityisen voimakas humalan tuoksu. Vaalea, aavistuksen kuparinen väri. Vaahto alussa paksu, mutta muuttuu pitsimäiseksi. Maku tasapainoinen, humalaisuus maistuu hyvin alkumausta loppumakuun. Ei erityisen makea, vaan pikemminkin hapan. Miellyttävä kokonaisuus, jossa ei ole mullistavaa määrää erikoisuutta, mutta perusvarma apa.

Can from Patrik - many thanks! The beer pours out of the can in a clear amber colour with low steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and mild citrus. Taste of hops, spruce, grass, citrus and barley. Bitter finish. Lacks some body and deepness but not that bad.

Can shared with McTapps. Thank also to Patrick - Well, it’s always funny when you drink the beer before knowing any score or further information. In that case it means we find a dull, nearly tasteless beer which contains only a bit of hops and maybe a bit of grass in the aroma. The taste, if there is any, is dull, watery and in the end just bitter - in a simple way. The best about that one is its look and the design of the can. Crazy disappointment. Or maybe my tongue is just too simple and one diemensional for a beer like that.

A decent pale ale. Refreshing, some toffee, citrus and pine. Could have more body and head retention.

500 ml can. Clear orange/amber colour with a medium off-white head. Aroma contains notes of hops, grass, citrus (grape) and some malt. Medium sweetness and bitterness in the taste with a dry and bitter finish. This beer is medium-bodied and has a average carbonation. This is a really good beer by Nokian Panimo!
