3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s pour can be remarked as having a certain a copper orange-dusty glow to it with which sustained an off-white head. Aromas of LME, hops, and mint. Not much else. Bread yeast, but it;s quite brief. Tastes of tin, caramel, mint, and vegetal hops. Fine, by my standpoint.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It poured a light copper slightly cloudy color with a medium head that quickly dissipated leaving about an average lace around the glass. The smell had some floral scents with hints of caramel and hops. The taste was slightly malty and sweet with brown sugar and caramel, and had a slightly bitter hoppy finish. It had a light body with a high carbonation. A good ol’ APA that was pretty drinkable. Overall, decent for the style and good for me.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Pours a watery looking light copper body with a thin and fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is just horrible to me. That awful buttery ringwood yeast just jumps out and punches you in the face. It’s hard to even smell any hops in this. The flavor is just as bad, it has ringwood written all over it from front to back. Some weak soggy and wet grain on the finish that pretty well lacks any bitterness at all. Slightly sticky and clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Somewhat watery in texture. Just as awful as I remembered it was.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle, 0.355 l - BBE Sep 2012, at Pikkulintu, 20120908) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, cardboard and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. The age had done its damage but I doubt this beer would be much better if it were fresher.
