What a pity that they make this with so low alcohol content. One of the best ever Finnish beers. And it is not expensive even in Finland!

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.

Great bargain for its price here in Finland! I really enjoy this APA with a strong hoppy aroma. I think it is quite well balanced too. Even though it might get mixed to any market beers here, for me it works almost as well as some more expensive import beers. I am comparing more to IPA beers, as I have not had so many APA’s. Maybe slightly too bitter aftertaste at least from a can.

500 ml can. Opaque amber color, frothy white head. Pronounced piny hop aroma. Smooth hoppy flavor with a hint of grapefruit and cookies. Hoppy finish. Light body, medium carbonation. A surprisingly good beer that fills a corner of the Finnish market that has been sorely underpopulated. Might be even better at a slightly higher ABV, but an excellent and sessionable choice as is. Very nice!

Hazy orange with an eager head.
Aroma is strong with citrus and soap.
Taste has some sweet malts and solid bitter kick.
You can tell the low OG, but still suprisingly good.

Hazy reddish copper with big frothy creamy head that leaves lacing. Strong aroma is highly citrus-pine hoppy, mango also, nicely fresh and fruity. Light body, soft feel but also crisp, fruity sweet and bitter, good fruity finish is long. Tasty and easy to drink. Best one from Nokian Panimo, enjoyed.

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.
