sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2010
(Bottled, sampled 2010-03-12) Clear golden with a smallish, quite firm head. Aroma of fresh lime and some orange. Flavor is the same with lots of aromatic citrus, slight sourness, neutral, light pale maltiness, low bitterness. Quite light body, not watery, pretty refreshing, lots of CO2. A fresh summer beer, but straightforward and expensive.

madmitch76 (25310) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2010
16th April 2010. Clear gold beer. Light dry palate. Light pale malt with a little honey. Marmaladeish orange hop, not that bitter. Just a whisper of sulfur. Finishes dry with a little spicy bitter orange. Not bad.

FatPhil (16893) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2010
500ml bottle (K CM, Kammpi)
Lovely citrussy friuty and almost floral aroma. Pale, but a little hazy, and with a brief head. Initially a bit thin and watery, but certainly with a pleasant hoppy bite. However, as you go down the glass the hoppy finish builds up and build up until you get quite a tingle with every sip. Malts are light, but balance the hops well, and make this a very good blond ale. Anyone ticking this from less than a whole pint is not giving it a proper chance, as these hops are great.

3.7
liinis (1775) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 23, 2010
slightly hazy yellow with a small head. buttery lightly salty. some lemon and delicious hops. sweet dry buttery mouth after.
