Draught @ Konttori, Tampere.olio (10410) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 9, 2011
Pours a cloudy amber colour with a thick, creamy, off-white and lacy head. Chunky lacing actually. Aroma of fresh hops, caramel and some floral notes. Flavour of stinging, quite crispy hops, caramel malts, grapefruit, floral notes and sweet fruits. Some bubblegum as well. Long, bitter, sweet fruity finish. Maybe a bit too sweet but other than that very well done.
Draught @ Konttori, Tampere.tiong (7436) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2011
Pours clear orange colour with a medium head. Leaves some lacing. Aroma is citrus, grassy hops, some caramel and distant notes of glue, not enough to make it disturbing though. Flavor is hoppy apricot, caramel and notes of toffee.
Draught @ Pikkulintu, Helsinkimjs (7510) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2011
Pours dark orange with a foamy head. Aroma has hints of fruits and glue. Taste is hoppy with notes of exotic fruits. Finish is quite bitter and rather sticky. A bit unbalanced, though.
(New batch, draught at Pikkulintu, Helsinki, 20110512) The beer poured amber and cloudy. Aroma had black currant leaves, sweet fruits and malts, Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were black currant leaves, fruitiness, malts, mildly sweetness and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Really good tasting APA. Hops weren’t overdone but still they were clearly present.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 Hazy dark orange, big creamy head. Nose has sweet fruits (lots of carambola), some aniseed and parfumey notes. Overall aroma feels somehow raw and a bit homebrew-like. It’s like the beer has been kegged and served in too much of a hurry. Same goes for the flavor, which is dominated almost entirely by insipid hops, loosing the nice fruitiness and malts. Medium bodied with soft, a bit creamy mouthfeel. I was expecting something more crisp and malty. Maybe this was just a bad batch, since it definitely has potential.

Re-rate, a few weeks further matured batch
The raw yeastiness is gone, leaving a more balanced, quite solid APA. Nice creamy appearance, with the same exotic fruity aroma. Strongly bitter flavor with some caramel-like maltiness. (8 4 6 3 13)
Good head, coppery color. Tempting, very hoppy, aromatic aroma. Nice hoppy flavor. Very fruity. Good beer, no doubt about it. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2007
Draught at Helsinki Beer Festival 2007. Amber color with nice creamy head.
Fruity, flowery, citrusy and grassy hop aroma with honey and odd petrol scent.
Cloying sweet flavor with honey, pineapple and strawberry. Low bitterness and low carbonation. Interesting but weird aroma. Too sweet or not enough bitterness. omhper (25351) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2007
Draught at Black Door, Helsinki. Hazy pale nut brown, minimal head. Interesting wild strawberry aroma. Medium sweet with rounded mouthfeel and medium body. Canteloupe mixes with wild strawberries backed by bready malt. Aromatic finish with above medium bitterness. FatPhil (16647) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 10, 2007
Draught (Helsinki Beer Festival 2007, Helsinki).
Rich amber. Smells of grape, and rabbit (feed) pellets. Fruity and vegetably - but in a good way. Taste is grapefruit and vegetables. Bitterness is refreshing and unusual.
