50 cl can. Unclear liquid which is golden and has small white head. The aroma has notes of straw, minerals, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and wet hay leading to a dry finish. All in all pretty good.

Tap at Kaisla, Helsinki. Slight hazy golden shade. Ring of white head that clings on. Aroma is light honey but a bit chemically. Taste is similar but thankfully doesn’t have the same industrial profile. Noble hops. A bit average on the whole.

A gift from my friend Kera. Golden, mildly cloudy with white thick foam, that lasts somewhat. Malt, bisque, caramel in the aroma. Malt, toffee, dry hay with dry metallic bitterness in the aftertaste with a hint of banana.

Plus to Bio. Unfiltered beer. Not very special taste. Hay barn, candy, licorice. Bitterness OK. Sign of good balance hops. O’Kay, not more.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber with a little white head. Aroma is malty with notes of grain and bread with a hint of herbal hoppiness. Taste is very light bitter, hops do not really push through. Pale, clean maltiness dominates; flavours include cereal and grain. The palate is light, the carbonation lively. Very simple but decent companion for food, for example.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml can, slightly hazy light orange colour, small white mostly lasting frothy head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of hay and fruit, some floral hops. Taste is initially balanced bittersweet and gets more bitter towards the somewhat longer than average finish with a moderately astringent feel. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Quite a bit more pleasant compared to their lager albeit somewhat similar. Not a bad purchase as they are one of the few if not the only smallish brewery in Finland that doesn’t want over 6€/l for their products in every retail outlet.
