Slightly hazy golden color, small white head. Orange peels, fruityness, marmalade. Light-bodied. Fruityness, light coriander and marmalade. I’ve had several pints since SOPP - when it is fresh, it is quite refreshing (hi).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty watery aroma, just a hint of malts. Watery palate. Pretty dull, but clean and refreshing. But weak. No signs of any spice girls. Some sourness pops out in the aroma later. I guess it’s an OK summer quaffer. But has that lagery lameness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere.
Pours a cloudy orange colour with a white firm head. Aroma of citrusy hops, herbs, some wet earthy notes and grass. Flavour of citrusy hops, wet earth, mild cooked vegetables, yeast, spices and hay. Ginger is rather well hidden, which is a shame. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Overall a only mildly spiced up beer with some off-flavours.
