COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coyet Ale jatkaa Suomenlinnassa harjoitettua pintahiivaoluiden traditiota. Tämä 4,5 % alk.vol. täysmallasolut (pilsner-, ale- ja karamellimallas) on vahvasti humaloitu. Sen tunnistaa kuparinpunaisesta väristä ja kermaisesta vaahdostaan. Oluessa maistaa rehevän maltaisuuden lisäksi vahvan humalan aromin Coyet Ale on saanut nimensä kuulun soturin Henrik Gideon Coyetin mukaan (1725-1774). Hän vietti elämänsä viimeiset vuodet Suomenlinnan linnoitustyömaalla ja linnoituksen päällikkö Ehrensvärd nimesi osan uljaasta linnoituksesta hänen mukaansa. Coyetin aikakaudella kaikki oluet olivat pintahiivaoluita, aleja.

jinroh (1022) - ESTONIA - DEC 10, 2013
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.

jann3 (254) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2013
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)

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2013
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.

KoNrRiI (1036) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2013
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.

Reddish brown, thin hazy head. Mild herblike and grassy aroma. Medium bitterness. Very basic bitter, rather enjoyable if not that interesting.

Ernest (7121) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Draft (at Suomenlinnan). Head is mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Wasn’t a big fan of this one, partly due to the yeasty nose and partly because of the acidity. May have just been getting towards the end of a keg, dunno. Ok, but not in the same league as the others for me. But evens so, look at the ratio here...of 6 or 7 beers, this was the only one I wouldn’t have eagerly ordered more of. At most brewpubs, the reverse is true (heck, I’m lucky to find even ONE that I like in most places!).
