3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi
Pours golden with a small sticky head. Aroma has hints of grain and grass. Taste is quite bitter with notes of hops and citrus. Long lasting bitter finish. A bit light bodied, but the massive bitterness compensates this well. Nice one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a light yellow golden colour with a small, slightly lacy head. Aroma of hay, grains and floral hops. Flavour of floral hops, strong citrus, hay and bready malts. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a dry, bitter, bready finish. Some similarities with Mikkeller’s Burger & Bun L.A. Lager but this is too thin.

Pale yellow with a bleached head. Aroma is full of fruity hops (simcoe and citra) with lots of grapefruit and citrus. The malts provides just enough sweetness to back up the bitterness and strike a balance. Very flavourful, very quaffable. Great lager for the summer months.
