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.

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.

(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20120709) The beer poured brown and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. The beer was quite musty and also unclean. Still a quite good one for the first released beer. Rating: 6-2-6-3-12=2.9

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.

fantti (785) - FINLAND - MAY 23, 2014
Hana @ SOPP Tampere. Kaatuu lasiin oranssinkeltaisena ja hieman sameana, keskikokoinen vaahto jättää lievän kerroksen oluen pinnalle. Tuoksussa on tasaisesti sitrusta, vohvelia, karamellia sekä puumaisuutta. Maussa sitrus on vahvimpana, jonka tukena on puumainenkin humala sekä karamellinen makeus ja lievää pihkaa. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen, katkerahko ja alkuun makea, mutta se kuivuu melko nopeaan. Hyvä APA, joka on hieman tavallista makeampi pysyen kuitenkin hyvin juotavana.

Marstonlad (559) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours hazy amber with a big frothy head. The aroma features a mix of sweetish caramel, nutty maltiness and citrusy hoppiness. Taste is very light sweet initially,later drier and more bitter. Flavours include grapefruit, grass and pine - fairly hoppy. Bitterness reaches quite high levels and builds a pronounced hop character. The palate is medium bodied, average in carbonation, drinkable despite being stronger than its style counterparts.

laiti (7263) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2013
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.

Draught@Pub Winston, Pori. Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, and some sweet and bready malts to go with it. Flavour is fruity, floral, nectary with some mild grassy and wooden notes as well as some slight sweet and crispy maltyness. Balanced, and quite nice.
