UPDATED: JAN 7, 2014
Draught @ Plevna, 23.9. 2011.
Hazy reddish brown beer with off-white head. Weak aroma of rye malts and hops. Taste is sweetish malts and moderate bittery hoppiness. This no hop bomb. Well balanced, easy to drink.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013
Draught @ the brewpub. Rated on 02.05.2009
Aroma has some slightly aged fruits and bready malt. Flavour has exotic fruits and grape with some bready malt. This used to be much more hoppy, refreshing and radical. I wonder what has happened?
8+3+7+3+13 = 3.4
Cask @ Pikkulintu
Pours a big-bubbled head(!). Aroma is odd with caramel and some fruits. Flavour has resiny notes, strawberries, some vanilla tones and hints of toffee. Also some woody and hay tones. Harsh bitterness with herbs in the finish after some sips. Feels messy and does even get some vegetable and herbal tones at the middle of the glass. Perhaps not at its prime, but not too far from it.
7+2+7+3+14 = 3.3

Diskret doft, men trevlig smak. Balanserad humle, lite jordig med hint av bröd och en ok fruktighet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Kaisla, Helsinki. Amber, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and fruitiness, some rye - bread, citrus and some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, citrus and grapefruit hoppyness, some caramel and fruitiness, some rye - bread. Finish is average, malty and and lightly sweetish with some caramel, grapefruit hoppyness. OK sweetish rye-IPA, not too much caramel. Aroma is quite weak considering
hoppyness in flavor -aroma and flavor are not in balance.
