Draught. Amber. Malty, citrusy nose. A good deal of florals, grapefruit. Body is med. Good citra-like citrus. Sweet pear, apple. Caramel. Pretty good. A lot of hoppy fruit. Some caramel. Almost parfumy. The cali common ’character’ gets a bit overrun here.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap (William K Kurvi, Helsinki)
Pretty messy mashy fruity aroma, quite incoherent. Only surpassed by the utterly hatstand taste. All kinds of thing, mostly sweet and fruity, but also mashy, Jarkko spotted something enteric. His actual words were "I just had cows’ shit beer". I don’t thinkit’s as bad as that, but I didn’t have a cow farmer in the family.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Draught at William K Kurvi, 20121115) The beer poured mahogany coloured and almost clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had herbalness, malts and molasses. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, herbalness, boiled vegetables. molasses and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A bit messy brew and the sweetness and herbalness weren’t a perfect match for my tastebuds.
