3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Pub Winston, Pori
My glass was compiled from three pours - the tap was very foamy and unstable. Aroma has grapefruit, some citrus and honey. Flavour has grapefruit, peaches, hints of hay and honey. Somewhat tart finish with grapefruit. Some stickyness and vegetable notes at the middle of the glass. Also some hops that linger in the back of my mouth. Refreshing and nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 On tap at pub Winston, Pori. Hazy orange, one finger creamy white head is long. Medium strong aroma is tropical fruity with bit caramel malting. Medium body, soft feel, surprisingly bit funk in flavor, flavor is fruity sweet with bit funky sourness, long aromatic finish. Interesting one, nuanced with a kick.

On tap at One Pint Pub. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Is this an IPA or APA?? Anyways, smooth with mellow piny hop notes. Good balance. A little on the non-descript / bland side.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap (Black Door, Helsinki)
Aroma? What aroma? You can just about tell there’s a beer in the glass. Simple keggy palate, crisp carbonation. Right at the front theere’s a wooly and almost smoky flavour. Big bold bitter body, a bit resiny, quite earthy, but a little messy, some swimming pool or minerals. This beer makes me appreciate the Malmgard Rusko I had earliermore. Both keg, but, despitr this one packing a whole bunch of flavours, this lacks any sophistication. I can imagine a smoker liking thiis, as it can cut through their noise floor. Grungy.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2013 (Re-rate, new batch, draught at Pikkulintu, 20130403) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized, dense, long lasting and white. Aroma had mixed exotic fruits, malts and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, citricness, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, sweet and bitter. Way better than the batch I tried the previous time. Nice APA.
