On tap at The Liffey (Stockholm). Nice amber body with a thick off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy taste with bready hints. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries grainy and woody notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. Enjoyable.

27th May 2013
On tap at the hotel bar, Hotel Reisen, Stockholm. Clear amber beer, little white head. Palate is minerally crisp. I had a bit of a double IPA fest at the Ardberg embassy and thus is tasting a little fresh air. Very light malts, light caramel note. Mellow citric hops. Crisp finish. The dominant flavour is minerals! But not too bad!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg (Leijuva Lahna, Helsinki)
Super sweet fruity aroma, everything from mango and peach to a bit of lychee and strawberry. Bright orange, keggy off-white head. Fairly simple body, not as bold as the aroma hinted. But clearly a hoppy modern pale ale. Malts sweet and caramelly, aromatic hops a ramped down version of the aroma. Bittering hops heighten the tingle from the carbonatio, and fortunately build up to give this more complexity. Finish has almost toffee-like sweetness, but the bitterness is nice and dry, herbal, and a little bit undergrowthy. Designed to do one job, but doing it rather well. Good one, if it wasn’t for the fizziness, I could session this.

Bärnstensfärgad öl med smutsvitt skum. Doft av fruktighet och viss maltsötma. Smaken är karamellsötma, malt och en balanserad beska.
