3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really good IPA. A huge frothy head with tons of lacing. The nose is of floral hops, perfume notes and grassy hints too. Sweet resiny flavor with citrus flavors throughout and light toasted malts. Well balanced and sticky but not bitter,

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,5 l can. Keisari surprises me once again, so often do Finnish brewers succumb to the sin of being way to cautious in the use of hops, that a well hopped brew does stand out. I personally appreciate the low ABV, even though the brew might suffer in terms of a lighter body, it is very approachable and you can always pop one of these - regardless of the circumstances.

.5l can from ABC Keljonkangas
Pours cloudy golden to copper with medium, foamy, white head. Aroma is citrus fruits, hops and malts. Flavor is malts, dry hops, citrus. Some pine soap in the end. Great beer for this abv. A bit more body maybe is needed.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can 50 CL. Pours orange dark with medium lacing head and a nice fruity scent. Notes of good hops, sitrus, orange. Very Nice apa from an Finnish producer. Very refreshing. And its great to find good beers for a reasonable price from finnish stores once in a while (not to often it happens).

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper yellow beer with white head. Aroma of exotic fruits, pines and aromatic hops. Surprising! Flavour is bitter and hoppy with more fuits and pine. This is rather light so it’s good that the bitterness is not over the top.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Hazy dark orange color with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of fruity hops. Bitter taste with dry, bitter finish. So far I haven’t much liked of any brews from Nokian Panimo but this one’s really well done!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange colour with nice big foamy head. What a scent! Damn, there is grapefruit and some tropical fruits, this is getting interesting. There is some darkish pine or some other forest type of quality as well. And then comes the taste, this really delivers. There is sweet tropic fruits, pine forest and an bittersweet ending. Really excellent beer from Nokia and it goes brilliantly with BBQ food.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5l can from the local supermarket. Pours cloudy golden with a low head. Aroma is malts with some fruits and hops. Flavor is malts with some fruits and a well balanced hoppy finish. Could use some more body but definitely among the best <4,7% IPAs available in Finland.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Foggy light brown color. Aroma is raisiny with apple juice and fruit.
Taste is surprisingly sour in a good way. Hops come through nicely with a piny overtone. A bit watery with a dry aftertaste.
A good beer with a nice character, yet a bit too much of a compromise to be something special. A nice go for the somewhat low ABV.
