3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle, hazy medium yellow colour, small frothy mostly diminishing white head, little lacing. Heavily hopped aroma of grapefruit and spruce backed by moderate maltiness with notes of hay, caramel and dough. Taste is initially fairly balanced, soon turning into a long bitter finish. Light to medium body, watery texture, almost flat carbonation.
Well hopped and fairly interesting aromas, especially for a lager. Almost nonexistent carbonation made the palate rather unpleasant though, could’ve been a faulty cap.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Sitruunan tuntua tuoksussa. Maku on Suomessa tehdyksi voimakas. Tulee mieleen vahva Corona. Ihan mukava futisolut. Tosi kylmänä hyvä. Ei edes humala haitannut. Luultavasti aikamoista Jaakkoa. Ihan sellainen pihan saunajuoma.

Draught as Stadin Mandarin Lager 5,3 %. Pours unclear golden in color with a small whitish head. Light tropical fruityness and hay in aroma. Some soapy and light citrusfruity notes in taste. Refreshing and quite nice tasting brew with a light bloodgrapefruit biting in finish. I do like the way how the quite soft tropical fruityness takes a turn into a more grapefruity bitterness here and thus making this a good brew.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. 16/08/13. Pours orange with a large white head. Aroma is hoppy with lemon, citrus, pine and grapefruit. Even a whiff of exotics: Pineapple and passionfruit. Taste is ho p forward as well. Citric, grapefruit, somewhat fruity sweetness. A lot of American hops in the beginning. There’s a certain unpleasantness on the finish. An off-flavor, bit vegetal. Becomes stronger when you pour in the yeast. Turns very unpleasant. Light, could be a bit stiffer. Good effervescancy.
