2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught (Olutkellari, Helsinki)
Orange, tiny keggy head. Slightly farty aroma, sweaty crotch. Crisp carbonation. Sweet malts, some nettles, but the hops are also fruity. It’s trying to be interesting, and maybe to a hop ticker it is, but to me it’s just like a hundred other hoppy APA-style European beers. Just fruity hops. Did get some oregano in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle. Finland. Batch #331.
Hazy dark red colour with no head.
Sweet fruity hoppiness in quite weak aroma. Malty flavour with some bitter fruity hoppiness. It’s almost like rosehip soup. Very thick and sticky. Low carbonation, almost slightly watery. I guess this ain’t my cup of tea.
