2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Peas in the aroma right from the start. After that quite malty. Misty orange, last glass was heading to hazy. Head was tight and persistent. Pleasant bready malts, but again there’s some peas and vegetables. On the upside, there’s pilsner-level hopping in this. Nice full palate. Initially when it was colder it was quite crisp and biting, but as it warms it becomes quite full and smooth. Finish is nice bitter hops, some dustiness. Shame about the peas, without that it would have been quite good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. BB 04/02/16. (Alko) Tampere, Finland.
Cloudy orangey golden colour with a tiny white head.
Grainy malt, cookies, dough, mild hops, mild bitterness and some bitterness in the aroma. A bit messy. The flavour is dryness, maltiness, grain, play doh and some bitterness. A bit boring. Glad påsk if you will!
