Draught@Hilpeä Hauki, Helsinki. Cloudy amber color, white head. Grapefruity hop flavor. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Once again a beer that is too grapefruity for my taste.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of frothy medium sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained unnoted carbonation, was unnoted and light brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild caramel malts and hops. Its mouth feel is initially tingly thick with a lingering mellow palate and a dough aftertaste. Its flavor contained caramel malt hop notes. A very average brew.

Bottle. Small off-white head that mostly diminished, fair lacing, fine-medium sized bubbles, carbonated, transparent, and an orange hue. Aroma was malty, caramel, sweet and hoppy as was the flavor. Tingly mouthfeel. Light-medium body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazed amber body with small beige head. Aroma is sweet, toffee, floral. Taste is toffee and earthy at the front, giving way to pine, light grapefruit. Can occasionally get a slight metallic tang in the swallow. Medium watery body. Very pleasant beer ideal for sessions.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An alright appearance to this one with decent white head. Nose is lightly hoppy and...is there a note of peach or some other sweet fruit? It's a LITTLE too subtle...more aroma strength would be of great benefit. Flavor has that same hint of fruit that I just can't place. Not too hoppy or bitter...in fact, other than the fruit note, there's not much at all. This beer desperately needs some depth to make it better.
