3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl, bottled. Pours clear ferric orange with a disappearing white head. Aroma: Pleasant fruitiness, mandarines, peach, ananas. The First smell is amazing, rich and pleasant in fruitiness! Some mild pine notes, too. Very nice. Taste: Medium sweet, slightly soapy flavours. Some wooden bark and dirt in the flavours. Not bad but not as nice as in smell. Aroma: Quite light body, actually. Feels somewhat flat and the palate is the weakest link here. Some vague breadiness and soapy notes in the end. Pretty good.

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).
