Flaske fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Langnes. Gyldenbrun. Lavt tett skum som daler sakte. God ferskenaroma. Smaken balansert. Mye tørket aprikos. Blir tørr etter hvert. Godt øl!

The_Osprey (10532) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2018
January 2018 - Tasting in Hackney. Bottle shared with big thanks to Dave. As 'Thornbridge Tonttu', 6%. Pours a dark orange – nearly brown – still and translucent with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is resinous, orange rind, papery, mixed dried peel. Body is frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is dusty, a little herbal, faint toffee and pine with a resin and orange background. OK. (6-4-7-3-15=3.5)

Aroma of malt, fruits, pine and fresh citrus and peel. Amber with a white head. Medium sweet and medium + bitter. Medium body with average carbonation. Dry and bitter finish. Overall a decent IPA. A bit on the thin side, but still very enjoyable.

jrh2254 (296) - burton-on-trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2018
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2018 From a beer hawk mystery case. Nice fresh malt/ mild hop aroma. Says it’s a Christmas red ale but I thought it was a really nice very hoppy ale. A little sweet , but great hops, malt, fruity , and overall very nice.

Bottle from Mace SCR, Dublin [090718]
Dark amber, light haze, white head
Aroma of citrus hops, soft lemon, soft zest, soft sweet malt under the hops
Taste of caramel malts, citrus zest, soft toasted malts, quite hoppy, good flavour
Palate - Medium carb and body, quite bitter, good bitter sweet balance, no alcohol. Finish if a bit dry, bitter zest
Overall - Not really an Xmas ale, just a good hoppy red ale. Liked it.

3.4
Rask0lnikov (2250) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 14, 2018
On tap at Pudel bar. Pours amberish yellow colour. Moderate white head. Sweet, peachy, caramelly, slightly sourish, slightly citrussy aroma. Rather sweet, apricoty, bit caramelly beginning. Sweeter side of the fruits in the middle. Fruity, slightly citrussy finish. Rather light bodied, modrately carbonated, quite sweet IPA. Sourish notes makes it a bit different than other clasdical englidh IPAs.
