Hazy amber color, small white head dissapears quickly. Smell is floral, caramel and hops. Medium carbonation. Taste is fruity, caramel, sweetness, hops, even some dark chocolate bitterness and hints of spices(?). Overall: pleasant surprise, really interesting taste.

thirstyrabbit (1109) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2013
Small can. Pours a nice semi-cloudy amber body but the head is only minimal. Never as tall as shown in the picture here. Aroma has melon and pineapple. Mouthfeel is a bit syrupy and soapy. Hops are there but they have no bite. As a result it feels a bit too sweet.

Brandman (2108) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 12, 2013
Hazy orange body, white head. Aroma has soapy caramel, flat mellow fruitiness. Same melon Aroma than in wit. Flavour is quite flat and slick maltiness status on muoti Ford quite long. Pretty mediocre pale ale.

PotjeBier (1733) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2013
12 oz can (from Maruetsu supermarket, Nakano, Tokyo). Light amber to orange color, a bit hazy. White head (not much). Aroma’s: malty sweet, fragrant aromatic hops with a little fruit (confit) retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet with a starting bitterness. Light bodied but not thin. Finishes with a delicate bitterness and some grain. Certainly decent.

330ml can (Pudel, Tallinn)
Fruity, but watery too., in the aroma. SImple sweet caramelly toffee grains, again watery and a bit dirty. Plenty of nettley hops. Watery and fizzy palate, but a nice hoppy bite and tingle. Fairly easily drinkable, but a bit dull and sweet.

suurjuust (1101) - ESTONIA - SEP 16, 2013
Slightly hazy orange, diminishing medium off-white head. Hoppy-grapefruity-grassy nose with malty sweetness. Taste is pretty similar to the nose, crisp hoppiness with malty sweetness. Grassy-hoppy dry finish. Thin to medium body, medium carbonation, oily palate. Very drinkable, pretty sessionable.
