Bottled (from K Citymarket, Vaasa). Amber colour, small off-white foamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is fruits, caramel, some mild bready notes as well as mild spicy notes. Flavour is fruity and floral hops with a quite dry wooden bitterness lurking as well. Mild herbs and spices are there too. Leighton (22812) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle at The Cad’s Pure Mad Rocket Mon The Beezer Tasting. Pours a rich, cloudy orange-gold with a bubbly, white head. Wood and pine hops in the nose, with hints of orange. Malty flavor to start, lightly bready with some caramel, pine bitterness. Medium in body with average carbonation. So so finish, reasonably well balanced with some light drying, pine and mild sugar. Decent. TBone (18554) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2010
Bottled 500ml @Beer Hunters (BB 12/2012)rosenbergh (11940) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2010
Slightly hazy amber color, big cloudy off-white head. Berryish (lingonberry), slightly hoppy aroma. Watery palate, foamy mouthfeel. Hayish hoppyness, light wood. Lingering bitterness. A bit lame, probably could be better from tap ... or with higher ABV.
500 ml bottle. Finland.olio (10682) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 6, 2013
Hazy amber colour with big foamy off-white head.
Incredibly fruity hoppy aroma. Almost like fruit salad, well, some piney bitter hops too (and some metallic notes). Flavour is very fresh, fruity bitter hoppy. Highly drinkable. Fizzy. Quite long-lasting fruity bitter aftertaste.
50 cl bottle.

Aroma is hoppy with some fruits, pine needles and hints of grapefruit. Flavour is rather hoppy with grapefruit, some fruits and pine needles. A slight vichy‐like feeling here disturbs – probably due to the low ABV. Refreshing stuff anyway.
50cl bottle from Jumbo, Vantaa. Poured hazy light copper color. Fluffy white head, some lacing. Aroma is fruity hoppy (lemon mostly). Flavor is malt, hops and some yeasty notes. Finish is fruity and bitter. lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2010
500 ml bottle @ home. BBE 12/2012.mjs (7773) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2010
Pours a hazy orange colour with a huge bubbly off-white foam. Nice lacing too. Rich aroma of floral hops, citrus, caramel and yeast. Floral hops dominate the taste with a hint of lemon and grass. Medium bodied, a bit watery texture and average carbonation. Bitter and long finish. Really good for a 4,5% abv IPA.
