4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Olutravintola Kukko. Golden beer, white head has small bubbles. Aroma is grassy hoppy, bready malty and citrus fruity. Flavour is very bitter with long aftertaste where bitterness stings your tongue. Bready malts, grassy hops, citrus. I like this very much and it’s a pity when this rotating tap changes to another beer.

Taste is smooth, extremely hoppy and bitter with hints of grass, butter and sweetness. Finish is hoppy, grassy and lingering bitter with some sweet buttery notes and bready maltiness. Tasty stuff, at least for hopheads like myself. Quite extreme Czech pils. Nom.

Tap @ the brewpub.
Almost clear golden color, medium sized head. Nice bitter and fruity hops on the nose right off the bat, slight buttery notes with grass also. Grassy, a bit harsh bitter palate with orange and gooseberries on the flavor. Nice and definitely refreshing. Should be a regular.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Plevna
Slightly hazy golden orange beer with a huge white cloudy head leaving massive lacing on the glass. Aroma has grassy and citrusy hops, sweet malts and some buttery diacetyl. Taste is first malty, then citrusy and grassy hoppy until the massive bitterness on the finish kicks in. It’s like chewing grapefruit peel. Mouthfeel is thicker than medium with quite heavy carbonation. A really heavily bitter beer - a bit simple but still enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ the brewpub, Tampere. Pours a slightly hazy colour with a white head. Leaves nice lacing to the glass. Aroma is very rich with grassy hops and herbal notes. Flavour is very rich and extremely bitter with grains, mild citrus, butter and bread. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a long, lingering bitter, dry finish. My kind of a beer. A bit better than I remembered.
This version is filtered and last time I had this (2011) it was filtered as well. The original Petolintu entry should be splitted to an unfiltered version and a filtered version, I think.
