Hayey-orange, large tight spongy very persistent head. Lovely soft grainy aroma. Gently honey, a touch husky, and undergrowthy. Simple drinkable palate, carbonation low. Loads of estery retronasals. Full grainy taste. Dry earthy bitter finish, some perfumey asects too. Later more dry and earthy. Very simple by design - basically just a proper bitter, but a really tasty execution.

Leskinen, Oulu, Finland. Pale golden, almost clear ale, frothy real-head with minimal lace. Mild, slightly doughy-sweet and freshly yeasty aroma with earthy/spicy hops and a hint of spices. Flavor is slightly caramelly and more bready, sweetish. Light to medium bitterness, quite enjoyable, herbally bitter finish. Medium body, soft and fresh. Still it lacks some character.
Cask conditioned at Oxford Beer Fest ’12. Pale gold with white head. Fresh fruity hoppy beer, lemony, oranges, tangerine notes, green hops, bitter and really quite tasty. Good stuff.
