esox (1172) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2008
Draught @ OTTO fest. A bit cloudy copper to orange beer with creamy, medim-sized head. Hoppy aroma is fres, full of floral and fruity (orange peel, even black currant!) elements with some resin in the finish. Rich malty flavor with some roastdness of caramel malts. Overall quite bitter, especially in the long finish that has also fruits and sweetish caramel. Palate is medium bodied, smooth and sticky bitter in the finish.

Slightly hazy, reddish amber color with thick, creamy and lacy head. Aroma is very mush aromatic hoppy, sweetish caramely malty with a bit of black currant. Flavor is sweety caramely malty, with balancing and long lasting grassy hops. Black currant can be also found from the flavor. Palate is quite full-bodied, dry and low cabonated.

Draught @ OTTO Festival. Copper colored, beige head. Bitter fruity aroma, apricot and hops. Palate is soft. flavor has well balanced bitterness and hops. English bitter like, but with more hops and ABV. Didn’t taste the rye tho.

larsga (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2008 Medium offwhite head does not last. Amber body with light carbonation. Floral resiny aroma. Dry-sweet resiny roasty dry cocoa taste with fruity notes and some honey. Carbonates a lot in the mouth. Dry resiny cocoa aftertaste. Quite unusual, but pretty good. (0.25l draft at Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki.)

(From long backlog in my notebook. Tasted from tap in Kaisla on 2007-12-30.) Generally, I liked this beer. The hoppines of the beer was rather strong and balanced. The body was medium, The tase of rye was notable, too.

(Draught at Kaisla, Helsinki) Amber colour, small pale head. Nose is caramel malts with some pitchy hops. Flavor slightly sweet caramel malty with heavy piney hoppiness. Dry and bitter finish. Medium bodied, very smooth and balanced palate. This one really surprised me, a great american-style IPA.

Draught at Kaisla, Helsinki. Amber color with smal creamy head. Tart fruity, berryish and nutty aroma with notes of black currant and honey. Bittersweet and crisp hoppy flavor with fruity, berryish and lemony notes. Nutty bittersweet finish.
