oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Bottled@Public Corner, Vaasa. Much to my surprise, Public Corner in Vaasa has stepped up their selection again. Amber colour, mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is floral, mild fruits with some resin and mild pleasant malty sweetness to it as well. Flavour is rather imilar, and it turns out this was a rather nicely balanced mellow IPA, more of the UK style, than the US.

Bottle at home in London. Pours perfectly clear, yellow-gold with a fine, foamy white head. Ripe citrus nose, some marmalade, bit of straw. Medium sweet flavor with lightly doughy pale malts, jammy citrus, some sugar, mild bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Fairly sweet finish with mellow hops, lots of jammy citrus, light hay and doughy malts. It’s a very tasty APA.
