3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l, from K Supermaker Kamppi, Helsinki) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was quite small, white, bubbly and long lasting. Aroma had hops, grain, dry hay and grass. Palate was medium bodied and bit dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, grain, hops, grass, mild fruitiness, hint of sweetness and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Slight musty character both in aroma and in taste. Still a good hoppy bitter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tämä maanomistajan palliale on vaalean kuparinen. Vaahtoa ei juurikaan muodostu ja se mitä muodostuu, katoaa hyvin nopeasti. Tuoksu on kutsuvan hedelmäinen, keksimäinen ja kukkaisen humalainen. Raikas maku on myös kukkainen ja hedelmäinen. Oluessa on pienoinen katkera jälkimaku ja hiilihappoisuus on melko pontevaa. Hyvä olut.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear deep orange with a thin lasting head. Aromas are subtle, some spiciness and citrus fruits. Flavour was a real let down, harsh biting bitterness followed by a tart almost medicinal flavour in the finish. I dont think this bottle has traveled well at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear amber, with a small, rapidly fading head. The aroma is an inviting mix of sweet malt characteristics, mainly toffee and caramel. There are some pepper and citrus hops to begin, with burnt caramel in the middle and a finish that blends caramel and pine. A quality bitter, and a satisfying ale.

500ml bottle. Pours a deep orange with a large head. Aroma is bready with some earthy hops. Some orange in there too. Some orange to start, with a really strong bitter finish. Really full in the mouth. Why have I not bought this before?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear orangeish amber with a dense, lasting off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is spicy and quite herbal with notes of biscuity malt, caramel, grass, mint and ginger. Flavour also has a strong hop profile but also has a solid malt backbone; the herbal, grassy elements are strong on the front palate and are followed up by equally strong malt notes of toffee, biscuit and butterscotch. Medium to light bodied with fairly high carbonation and a long bitter finish. This is a very good, and very different, English bitter. Much hoppier than most examples of this style but excellently balanced and highly sessionable.
