Fully fading blond head. Crystal clear golden brown colored body. Weak aroma. A wee scent of caramel, faint hay-ish hops. Well-bodied for low abv beer. Slick mouthfeel.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
50 cl from Stockmann. Enjoyed in summer cottage. Diminishing small head and amber colored. Dull aromas and can’t really find any specific aromas. Light structure and body makes it very easy to drink. Some bitterness in the end bringing some malt notes.

Expected a lot as I'm a big fan of spitfire which I believe comes from the same brewer. Was somewhat disappointed with this though.
