3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl at Helsingin Vanha jäähalli. Nice ruby red color with quite small white head. Aromas of citrus fruits and some salt, definitely a fresh and crisp brew which leaves fantastic taste to mouth.

Whisky coloured beer, brief white head. Lots of peaches in the aroma, sherry too. Mild toffee flavor, more caramel, malts, slight bitterness. Some boiled vegetables too. Body is on the watery side. Better than what I expected it to be but not something I’d buy again.

(Partially the hedonism scale here--I despise Cascade hops), this is a clearly more complex (not saiyng much) brew than a Finnish PL, but it seems that the Cascades was the only thing added...still watery palate, etc etc

Can from super market. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, grass, caramel and a bit of floral hops. Thin, but balanced body. Dry bitter finish. Ok brew, but way too close to the traditional bulk brews.

Boks 0,5l fra Kilpishalli. Drukket i heimen 13 Nov 12. Gyldenbrun med et ok kremaktig skum. Bra maltaroma med antydning til frukt. Lite kullsyre. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken litt vassen med klart søtt maltpreg. Svakt syrlig ettersmak. KI=6

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear copper color with a totally disappearing head. Malty aroma with fruity hops, Cascade I guess since they advertise it. Tastes like a macro lager with some more hops, not really like an ale. Some fruityness in otherwise malty finish.
