Pleasant bitter aroma. Red, small keggy head. Simple keggy bitter body. Dry earthy body. A bit dead, but no flaws, a barely adequate English bitter. Not helped by being keg and cold.

Keg (Teerenpeli, Kamppi) (6:3:6:3:13=3.1)
Slightly hazy amber, flattish, looks tired. Fruity hoppy aroma. Palate
a bit flat, definitely a bit tired. Simple fruity hoppy body,
pleasantly bitter. Finish is fruity and bitter. Good malt balance, and
drinkability high. Nice one. I get the feeling that I didn’t have
this at its best, so should rerate. It certainly had a lot of potential.
Rerate 3 days later. (7:4:7:4:14=3.6)
Wow - a different beer. So much more in every direction. Upped everything by one point. Lovely clear distinct hops, fruity and aromatic. Great bitter. Anna only had it at its best - lucky her!

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Draught at Teerenpeli Kamppi, 20121116) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, toffee and herbalness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, toffee, malts, berries, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, hoppy and bitter. An unbalanced and messy brew with some flavours pointing to fermentation errors. Not a good one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught@ Teerenpeli, Kamppi. Pours beautiful, hazy, full orange, with a thin head leaving a little lacing. Quite tasteful aroma is well-hopped, really sweet with exotic fruits like mango and peach. Unfortunately, taste doesn’t quite compare with the aroma. Though it possess all the good characteristics of the aroma ( Fruity, sweet, mango), they’re only weaker and more watery. Quite watery on the palate, also slightly tangy carbonation. Anyhow, in the aftertaste, the hop-base is quite well present and it’s also tasty. I think the preconditions of this beer are really good, since there’s no unpurities or nothing like that. It’s just that this is too thin and watery and therefore slightly lame. We want more hops :)
