Tap @ Black Door, Helsinki. Pours amber with a decent, off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit and citrus, taste is much of the same. Some biscuit-like malts too. A bit of pine. Could be fuller and with more carbonation. But excellent for warm weathers.

bottle. Orange hazy. Initially quite fruity hoppy nose - a bit of oranges, grapefruit, gooseberries, grassyness. later more toasted caramel malts. Body is dry. bitter, a bit sharp, harsh. Loads of hops, bready malts. Dry finish. Ok, but a bit too sharp for me.

Keg at Crown and Anchor. Pours a hazy orangy colour with thin white head. Aroma is slight tropical fruit with a slight cat piss edge and some mild funkiness. It's pretty good. Some pineapple, grapefruit and a dry bitter finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at the Hanging Bat. Had this many times at the Bat and always good on keg here. Never had in bottles tho as many here have... Always a pleasure this one. Easy, fruity goodness all round with that cheesy undercurrent that’s hard to nail. Hazy orange,sitting in a bright window on a summer’s afternoon. Funky fruit and summer breezes. Cool and still musky fruit pond in sunshade. Tickle on back of knees. Orchards on acid.

On tap. Hazy orange with white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, grain and ash. Taste is ashy, malt and grape notes. Odd but tasty
