2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2013 Draught @ Gastropub Praha
Aroma has gooseberry bush, some vanilla, fruits and hints of cinnamon. Flavour is slightly tart hops, gooseberry bush, some nettles, vanilla and hints of bun dough. Leathery palate with slightly too much CO2. Decent, the hops feel a bit old here. Also the yeasty bun dough notes disturb here. Perhaps a bit old keg?
50 cl bottle @ Pienpanimoiden Pieni Olut-tapahtuma, Mallaskoski, Seinäjoki
A lot better. Feels fresh with nice hop profile and no signs of yeast. Score estimate 3.5.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and fruitiness, light citrus hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel fruitiness, light citrus hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty and dryish, faint caramel and light citrus - piney hoppyness. Quite light-bodied pale ale, could use more body and more hoppyness - not too sweet though.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5 l bottle bought @ Eat & Joy, Helsinki. Unfiltered golden colour, normal white head. Easy going pale ale, hops don’t dominate the taste. For those who want to dry something tastier than watery lagers, but are afraid of too much hops.
