(Cask at Angleterre, Helsinki, 2011-03-21) The beer poured copper coloured and clear. Its head was long lasting and white. Aroma was quite sweet and fruity. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were hops, grain, malts, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. Initlally this appeared as a really good pale ale but unfortunately it turned quite quickly into weak and watery bitter.
