Pale yellow, clear, not much head. Grass, herbs, flowers. Light sweetness, medium bitterness. Not special, but also not offensive.

jookos (2607) - FINLAND - APR 16, 2014
Bottle. Light coloured. Earthy hops, some floralness. Not much malt to speak of. Light med bodied, nicely bittered, quite refreshing actually. Has english hoppyness, but very weak malts, even if a bit grainy. A bunch of citrusy flavours, wheaty tones. Dry and bitter. Eyes closed I would probably guess a bulk, southern, ale that’s been overhopped. Felt refreshing tho as the thermometer is showing almost 40C right now.

Beerheart65 (1023) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 11, 2014
Clear straw with bit sparkling and one finger frothy head. Hoppy fresh aroma with citrus and pine and also bit tropical fruits. Light to medium body, bittersweet, round feel, bitter finish is long, nice carbonation, malting balances smoothing the bitter hoppiness. Easy to drink and tasty, refreshing.

mile (3123) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle. Light yellow, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty - lightly grainy and sweetish aroma, light caramel and some floral fruitiness, light herbal hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, faint caramel and light floral fruitiness - faint honey, light herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and dryish, light floral fruitiness and light - some herbal hoppyness. OK decently hopped bitter (specialty grain). Floral fruitiness and bitterness do not match here.

50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 03/2015
Aroma has toffee and English hops. Flavour has Toffee, English hops, some grass and hints of grapefruit. Probably the best gluten free I’ve had. Kukko Pils is a close second though.

Poured flat and had a funny wooly smell to it. Saved by a pleasant, refreshing bitter flavour.

Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2014
500ml bottle picked up at Kjeller 5, Tromsø. Pours a huge white head reduced to a bubbly layer on top of a clear, pale golden body. Solid lacework. Floral hops on the nose, hints of wheat. Mid-dry taste of citrus and grainy malts, lightly spiced. Smooth, dry bitter tail. Oily palate. Soft. Medium bodied. Easy to drink, refreshing (shared with Finn H. at his place, Tromsø 27.03.2014).

allmyvinyl (4223) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2014
500ml bottle from Booths. Pours clear pale gold, little to no head. Aromas are dusty malt, cereal, light lemon citrus. Taste is light sweet, very light bitter. If there had been a vegetal note I’d have called it a lager, as it is, pretty sub-standard low-hopped blonde ale.
