3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hiukan katkera loppu. Ei silti liikaa. Vaahdota ei halua. Kaunis väri, Punakka. Vähän lisää makua kaipaisi.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kuparinvärinen, aika kirkas olut. Vaahto pysyy hyvin ja on pitsinen. Jälkimaussa hyvä katkera maku. Aavistus lakritsaa ja suolaisuutta. Miellyttävä olut.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle from Alepa @ Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Pours light copper with a nice head. Head dissipates soon into small lacing. Aroma is quite fruity and herbal hops are coming through too. Something soapy. Taste is diluted pear juice, bitter hops and some malty candy sweetness. Aftertaste is not very intensive, some hop bitterness lingering around. Overall not bad, body is perhaps weaker than I would have liked - but I guess the reason is in Finnish alcohol laws that allow only beers up to 4,7% to be sold in normal supermarkets.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly cloudy amber color. Large light beige head, nice lacing. Bittersweet aroma with caramel and hoppy notes. Initial taste is sweetish, then comes some moderate bitterness, and sweetish finish. Malty and fruity notes are dominating. Mouthfeel is quite thin and watery. (0,5 l bottle, best before 8.10.2014)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from a hypermarket in Helsinki, clear amber colour, large mostly lasting frothy eggwhite head, decent lacing. Aroma is moderately malty caramel, hay and nuts, fairly heavy resiny and floral hops also a hint of butter is apparent. Taste is initially slightly sweet and turns into a relatively long moderately bitter finish with an acetic feel, medium body, watery mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Not a bad ale, could have bit more complexity.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 bottle. Medium-sized, thin, white head; clear, amber liquid - looks quite fizzy. A lot of hops in the aroma, very sweet, buckets of fruits, a touch of caramel and malts. Taste is bittersweet, malty at first but then gets gradually more hop and fruity; it has quite a lot of caramel and a bit of unfortunate metallic notes. Medium body, slick texture and lively carbonation. Finish is much more resemblant of a proper IPA rather than a bitter, a lot of hops, exotic fruits everywhere, and a lingering bitter sensation. Overall the beer is pretty good, has some flaws but it’s on a right track.
