Keg (Punavuren Ahven, Helsinki, Kalakierros 2014)
Almost a lagery malt aroma. Simple breadiness, like pale lager splashed on sauna stones. A bit plasticky too. Deep straw, large tight head, persistent. Watery palate, a bit fizzy. Taste similar, dull bready malts. Hops almost nowhere to be seen. Very dull pale ale, more like an amped up lager it’s so "clean" (that is, uncontaminated by interesting tastes).
