35cl can at Sky high sushi at Tallinn airport. Pours deep golden to orange with a slightly off-white head. Rather fruity and moderate hoppy aroma with notes of tangerine, malt, caramel and hints of herbs. Moderate to medium sweet with nice fruity flavours and a decent bitterness. Pleasant one!

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Smells of hops and a citrus fruit smell to this beer. Cloudy orange amber with a very active head, this was in the can. Its flavor is a fruity malt nut grain flavor. Lots of body to this beer.

Kauge (97) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2014
Can from Tallinna Kaubamaja food department. If I understand this correctly its BB was due in June which explains the € 1,60 price tag. I guess I did buy it on the last day of June. Pours a deep, clear amber with a big off white head not retaining very well. Nose is a strong malty backbone with light, honey sweetness. A bit like roasted corn(or oat)flakes coated with honey. Malt is also most apparent in taste, with a peachy sweet and earthy hoppy, bitterish background. Light body with a rather crisp carbonation and slick mouthfeel. Overall? At least I’ve really tried to like this.

Scopey (6711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Can from Taps, Kl. Smashed back at the Mandarin Oriental. It pours clear amber with decent white head. The nose is sweet tropical fruits, lychee, star fruit, cucumber and toasty grain. The taste is crisp, bitter, tangerine, light sherbet, decent malt backbone, toast, hay, lychee and grapefruit with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice lychee action. Rather enjoyable stuff.
