On tap at The Bishop Arms Folkungagatan, pours a clear golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma of cereal malts, straw and a little corn. Flavour brings out dry cereal malts, straw, corn and some crackery malts. Very light and refreshing, with a nice balance. Pretty standard stuff, but well-made for what it is.

Clear golden with a white head. Refreshing piney fruity flavours. Maybe a touch on the watery side for a 5% beer, but a very quaffable pale all the same. Good stuff.

Draught at Old Bank, Turku. Clear brownish orange with an off-white creamy head. Pine and floral elements accompanied with sweet malt in the aroma. The flavour starts bitter and hoppy, but is rounded by sweet maltiness towards a balanced finish. Quite low carbonation. A high-class Pale Ale from Thornbridge.
