3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from offie consumed at The New Penguin. About time I got my finger out and rated something. Misted green gold without head. Good chalky calamine aroma with sprinklings of TCP and wasp-addled rotting fruits. Sharp and yeasty with bags of peel, wheelie bin (of decaying windfall), calamine and crap white wine left to sour on the worktop overnight. Surprisingly real and decent.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy pale yellow. Slightly funky green apples aroma. Slightly sweetish, kinda sourish, crisp apples flavor, a bit lemony. Pretty refreshing.

500ml bottle (Hilpea Haukki, Helsinki)
Hazy yellow, and the etched glass gives constant tiny bubbles, which I guess does make it look better, but is just flattening the drink. Whatever. Pleasant fruity aroma. Crisp palate, refreshing carbonation. Apple quite muted, quite dry. More appley as it warms, sweeter too, in fact it heads off in the directiojn of toffeeapple in the finish. Nice one.
