500ml bottle (K Sello, Leppavaara)
Pleasant fruity hoppy aroma, husky grainy malts. Scary soapy taste. Rough and a bit chemical. Acidic. Harsh. Rough. Almost lagery. No thanks.

TedE (1008) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2015
NYE Extravaganza 2. 500ml bottle into shaker. Gusher! Scent of orange peel and lavender. Hazy golden beer with thin film on top. Crisp flat mouthfeel leading to a dry grainy bitter finish, a little fruit present. As APAís go, quite mellow. Good quaffer.

mrjez (478) - Osaka, JAPAN - NOV 12, 2015
From old notes. 500ml bottle from Costco. Pours a slightly hazy light amber, finger of white head, bubbly. Smells nice, tastes good. A malty feel with some nice piney hop notes coming through. A little floral or tropical toward the finish, gentle bitterness. Just a bit aqueous and light-bodied over a whole bottle, needed a little more punch with both malt and hop body.

TET (2672) - Kaarina, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2015
A slightly orange beer, a head is small and almost white. Aroma has biscuits, some caramell, citrusfruits and wood. Taste has wood and biscuits, the bitterness is quite mild but still itís drying enough the mouth. Quite light bodied, easy to drink. Wooden vision, nevertheless, quite fresh.

thellgren (824) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2015
0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Dark orange (not amber) colour with decent head. Smell has hops. Taste has some malts but mainly hops with a bittering end. I found this more like a English pale ale with European bittering hops. Nice in its own way.
