Boks 0,5l fra Kilpishalli. Delt med Rune under rateseanse i H9 1 Okt 13. Gyldenbrun. Lavt skum som dalte raskt. Litt lacing. Overraskende bra aroma. Litt frukt. Lite kullsyre. God fersken/plommesmak. Avslutter svakt syrlig. Bra boksøl!

Clear orange beer with a medium white head. Something fresh and crispy in the aroma. Watery body. Well carbonated. Some hints of cranberry but without the sourness. Very drinkable but as a beer this is quite bland but I guess that’s needed to bring out the mild cranberry flavors. Still quite ok but without cranberry this would be really weak.

mjs (4555) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2013
(Bottle, 0.33 l, from a supermarket, 20131227) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had sweetness, berries and tartness. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, berries and low bitterness. Aftertaste had berries and low bitterness. I would accept the existence of this beer had they used proper cranberries but no, they did use cranberry essence and very tiny amount of it. I feel cheated.

Can from Patrick - shared with McTapps. Quite a strange one as it does not offer any nose but a few hints of an IPA with a bit of grass and some hops. Finishes fruity with some berries - I really wondered how that one became a fruit beer. But it is - and a fine one.

McTapps (3948) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2013
Can from Patrik - thank you. The beer pours out (with a big explosion) in a cloudy light orange colour with big steady head and medium to thin body. Weak aroma of hops and lemons / acid. Taste of lemons, forrest berries, hops, flowers and syrup. Easy to drink but just not that special.

330ml bottle. Pours with a clear orange/golden colour and a small, white head. The aroma consists of malts and cranberries. Moderately sweet taste. Light body, thin texture and soft carbonation.

kingstoni (1500) - FINLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle. Clear deep golden color with no head. Smells like a cheap soda drink with a little dose of vodka in it. Sugary taste of malt and berries with a sticky feel.

TBone (12545) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2013
Can 500ml. First brew from Saimaa’s new Mikkeli brewery? Clear deep copper-reddish color, small white head. Aroma has metal and tartish lingonberry jam. Light bodied. Light metallic maltyness with tart cranberry flavor. Not really an ideal combination. Base beer is quite weak.
