2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle @Ahven, Helsinki. BBE 07/2012. Poured amber with a thin, lacing head. Aroma is perfumy, caramel and some very disturbing fish aroma. Flavor was bitter, sweet malty and hoppy. Unbalanced. Poor brew. Too old I guess.

Pours a nice red-orange with a small white head. The aroma is faint floral and citrus notes. The taste is light hops with some caramel and bread. Nothing special but not terrible.

Bottle shared by Liz. Pours amber with a whiteish head. Very fruity aroma. Med body. Flavor is fairly tropical fruit, and somewhat floral. Finishes nicely hoppy and pretty dry. Good drink with lots of hop that isn’t harsh.
