Marstonlad (760) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2016
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a medium-sized white head with some lacing – simply beautiful. The aroma features citrus fruitiness, pine, resin and some grass; very hoppy. Taste is dry, crisp and heavily bitter, especially in the finish which is no wonder given the 95 IBUs. Flavours include initially pine, later grapefruit and orange. The palate is medium-bodied, average in carbonation. As intense as promised by the label.

Dermi (1114) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2016
12 fl oz, bottled. Pours clear amber with amazing white head. Nice bubbles. Aroma: Strawberries, wood. Raspberries. Taste: Milky sweet, smooth. Strong bitterness. Malty backbone. Fruity flavour, currants, notes of leaves. Very pleasant. Palate: Medium body, velvety. Bitter aftertaste with some wooden tones. Not a big fan of the finish, otherwise nice, strongly hopped pale ale.

355 ml bottle. Hazy golden yellow colour, thin white head. Aroma of citrus and hay, with sweetish fruity and malty notes. The flavour is malty, with lemon and pine notes, and a lingering, dry bitter finish. Pretty good stuff.
