At chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig ’11. Gold. Grapefruit and elderflower hop aroma. Intense nettly hop taste. I suppose it advertises itself as an overdose, but it really needs something else.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2011
{thoughts} Pleasantly, tropically hoppy though somewhat frustrated by competing esters.

{elements} Light hazy, golden hue; tall, white foam. Bright aroma of tropical fruits and apricots with a soft background of crackers and honey. off-dry, light acidity, moderate bitterness; bready sweetness, clean and fruity hops, berry like esters and tannic finish. Light body, soft carbonation, silky texture. 50 cl bottle, bbe 31.07.11.

At Papsoe’s pre CPH Beer Fest tasting, cheers Henrik! Cloudy gold beer. Crisp palate, actually surprisingly aggressive hops for it’s abv. Sharp grapefruit. Bitterish dry finish.

Kavu (4602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 9, 2011
Pours slightly hazy yellow with a low head. Aroma is strong hops and some fruits. Flavor is malts, fruits and lots of hops. Lives up to it’s name, which is nice.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
Draught at Black Door, Helsinki. Pale, dusted gold with a fine lacing foam and frills. Pissy, old dishcloth aroma with fibrous pineapple hints and background tinned peach. Floral, shampoo and quinine hop..some softening peach and passion fruit. Fresh, hopped up, quite harsh. Has the bollocks of a bigger beer, but balance to go with it. 100 IBUs according to the chap behind the bar. Late, peanut husk afters. Excellent- wouldn’t be out of place in The Valley.

Erasmus_ro (2820) - Alabama, USA - FEB 14, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a reddish gold with a full, creamy white head. Aroma is of floral hops, some citrus. Taste is - as the label says - a hop overdose. Palate is dry and surprisingly full. All in all, quite one dimensional, but the hops do take care of everything. They provide the needed fullness, aroma and taste. Exactly what it says on the tin.

Rune (12071) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2011
Wow what a nice surprise! A good hoppy beer with delicate smell and taste of fresh citrus, with pineapple to the fore, and citric shells. Nice, dry bitter tail. Not diluted at all. White head, reduced to tiny patches at the surface. Golden body with a slight haze. Perfect tasty, session beer. This 500ml bottle bought at K-Supermarket Kamppi, really proves that it is possible to make a very decent hoppy beer with low alcohol strength (enjoyed at my hotel room in Helsinki 04.02.2011).

tiong (6901) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2011
500ml bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi, Helsinki

Pours light yellow with a small head. Nice citrusy and hoppy aroma. Taste has a light body and a massive overload of hops. Palate is long and nicely bitter. Awesome beer for such a low ABV.

Bottle 50 cl. Poured clear golden colour with white head. Aroma is citrus and grassy hops. Flavour is blend of grapefruit and lemon. Nice bitter ending.
