3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 330ml (K-Kamppi)
Hazy amber-orange color, small off-white head. Dry but fruity aroma with light hoppyness. Light-bodied. Dry, orange peels, citrus, mango, even a bit funky. Not really a bitter. Suprised to read that this is top 50 bitter.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Pale orange, large tight persistent fluffy head. Blandish sweet fruity aroma, more a pale ale than a bitter, if you’re having to distinguish the two, slight soapy aspect. Thinnish palate, a bit watery, but an immediate carbonic acid and bittering hop bite. Taste quite yeasty, malts pretty low in comparison - I did pour it clear. Some bitter liquorice root in the finish. A bit dirty. Very naff bitter, not recognisable as a bitter, even. This is surprising, I normally really like Toccalmatto.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
C’est un truc somme toute assez simple , mais en tout cas je trouve ça très bon. Efficace. ça goûte pas mal l’orange amère ... Et le gaz assez fin soutient bien le tout. ABV faible. Le type même de bière qui m’irait très bien pour le repas du midi cet été.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden color with white head. Citrusy hops, pale malt base. Nothing much behind there, but it’s a bitter. Not complex, but not bad either.
