3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml Bottle (4.5%) - Amber with a foamy head. Apricot, toffee, grapefruit and a slightly husky hint feature in the aroma. The taste is crisp, hoppy and refreshing with grapefruit, toffee and peach detected. The hoppness lingers, but isn’t particularly strong. Pleasant, easy to drink and enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted as part of a batch of three bottles in the same series, all at 4.5% ABV and 40 IBU. Termed a Pale Ale, while Boadicea is said to be a Bitter - I would need persuading they are different styles. The point here is to get the effects of the different hop strains. Weird though it may sound, this is the only beer I remember having an immediate hop effect that disappears half way through then returns at the end.

Draught@Vihreä Haltijatar, sold as "Stadin Centennial APA", probably more or less same than this one
Dark amber color, small off-white head. Sweetish hoppy and raisins aroma. A bit light palate. Raisins, odd alcoholic twist, homebeer feeling. Some hops in the aftertaste. Wood, lychee. Strange mix of flavors.
