Builds up a massive fizzy minibubbled head when pouring.
Hazy golden color with visible CO2 release to the bottom. Big lasting cream colored head. Head is fizzy mainly, but settles to a rocky part on top, leaving lacing behind. Giving a weak 4 for appearance, mainly due to the lardge ratio of head versus liquid.
Sweet, malty, cream, berries scent. Malty, berries, grainy, slight phenolic, bitter taste. Phenolic, plastic, bitter, grainy, harsh aftertaste. Medium thin sort of weak mouthfeel, medium high rather harsh dry bitterness. No real hop focus character as I kind of expected it to have.
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours rusty copper with very little white head. The aroma features toasty, bready maltiness with fruits and some strange earthy yeastiness appearing as well - seems to be low on hops. Taste offers sweetish bready maltiness, some citrusy hoppiness, vegetables and a faint touch of pine. Bitterness is light to medium in strength. Unclean and unbalanced, sadly. The palate is light bodied, fairly low in carbonation. Tasted this with Sierra Nevada’s APA and there were light years in between. martjoobolut (5468) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 18, 2016

330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Hazy amber color. Huge size, white frothy head, stays. Yeasty, dirty, grainy, sweet, fruity in aroma. Sour, dusty, grainy, citrusy in taste. Messy and homebrewish. Hermod (8617) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 5, 2016

33cl bottle from Alko Stockmann, Helsinki. Pours almost clear deep amber with a lasting, off-white head. Fruity aroma with a fair amount of caramel, some yeasty notes, peaches and hints of pine. Medium sweet with ripe apples and caramel dominating the flavour. Some acidity is present and the finish is medium bitter. Certainly not my kind of APA - too sweet and the acidity doesn’t fit, but still drinkable. laiti (8536) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2016
33 cl bottle @ Kinnarniemi. BBE 29.12.2016. Aroma has sweetish tropical fruits and peaches. Flavour has minerals, resiny hops, tropical fruits and some pineapple juice. Finishes with grapefeuits. Confusing; the fruitiness is nice but mineral-like dryness is not. Erasmus_ro (3244) - Alabama, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle, #h-J16, 24/06/16, thanks bluus. Aroma is slight pineapple, wooden, slight conifer. Taste is dry, some citrus, very wooden. A wooden American pale ale. Not a good start. TET (3323) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2016
Bottle. An orange beer, a head is blond and medium. Aroma has fruitness, caramel, tropical notes, hint of unpure notes of glue. Taste has fruitness, some wood and pine, sometimes notes of vegetables. The bitterness is quite mild. Medium bodied. Hint of unpure notes, some modifications should be done and then this beer would be better. TBone (18665) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 8, 2016
Tap at Naamat. Deep amber color, small steady white head, lace. Sweet strawberry aroma. Medium-bodied. Flavor has light wood, pine but also berryish notes. Kind of messy, homebrewish debut.
