Can into a glass. Pours gold amber, slight white head, moderate lacing. Awesome fresh grassy, citrus hop aroma. Taste is unfortunately watery.but otherwise assertively bitter and citrus. A bit of puckering bitterness really lasts. Really not bad for a Finnish interpretation of an American style pale ale.

Dark golden color, big quickly disappearing white head. Aroma of fruity hops, pine and citrus. Taste is similar, dry with bitter hoppy finish. Light body and soft carbonation. Simple but quite drinkable hoppy ale.

0.5 l can from Prisma, Jyväskylä. Copper color. Floral and citrusy aroma. Floral and citrusy taste with grapefruit, pine and firm bitterness. Salty bitterness in finish. Light to medium body. Good middle of the road APA, a positive surprise to see this as an inexpensive Supermarket beer.

Draught @ Oluthuone Sailor’s, Helsinki. Orange towards amber colour with a white head. Mostly fruity aroma with pine-like hops and some caramel. The flavour is malty with pine and resin and a hint of caramel and grapefruit. Pretty good work by Nokian Panimo.
