Half pint from the brewpub: poured orange yellow with a fizzy white head. Earthy hop aroma with light candyish notes. Mild earthiness in the flavor with some citrus and a bit of sourness. Doesn’t taste like 7.2%. Smooth bitter finish. Okay.

GBBF. Cask. Clear gold beer. Softish palate, slightly dry and a little silky. Light hop but full on flavour. Mild grassy grapefruit. Some mandarin orange and a little pineapple. Mild minerals. Not much malt character. Quite a warming finish.

laiti (5550) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Cask @ Olutexpo 2013<bt /> Aroma has caramel, sweet fruity notes and hints of biscuits. Flavour is harsh in a bitter way. It has some fruit candy, gooseberry bush notes, bitter herbs and hints of caramel. Odd.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Cask @ OlutExpo 2013, Helsinki. Rated on 19.10.2013. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of grains, apricot, grass and alcohol. Flavour of grainy malts, grass, grains, citrus, bread and some tartness. Light bodied, soft carbonation and a citrusy tart finish. Weird.

TBone (12450) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2009
Cask@GBBF 2009. Yellow color, small white head. Crisp lemony aroma, very citrus fruity. Medium-bodied. Sweet fruity, lime, fruit sugar. A bit sticky. Slightly hard to rate. Lemon bomb.

jookos (1975) - FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
Cask@oe13. Yellow hazy. Estery nose. Some ripe banana, some yeast. Full bdied, slight oily. Doesn’t really feel that boozy, but does feel like getting it boozy was more important than flavour here. Like kilju with some finesse.
