LordCrabapple (109) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2007
This is a deliciously light, fragrant beer. And with only 3.9% alcohol, I can risk having more than one glass!

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2007
(As 3.9% ABV) Golden colored, medium sized white head. Nicely bitter and fruity, floral aroma, caramel also there with even some vanilla. This floral hops remind me of some Yankee-IPAs. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is also rich with bitter hops, lemon and mild flowers. Aftertaste dries strongly. Maybe somehow watery palate, comes from only 3.9% ABV.
