3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!).

Taster at the brewpub, 10 euros. Nice clear orange gold pour, mild herbal aroma. Bitter pine, rough grolsch like mid-mouth, clean finish. Ok, I get a kind of very bery subtle cheese vibe in the aroma/taste... Odd but pleasant. It would probably pair well with cheese.
