mjs (7768) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 1, 2011
(Draught at Hilpeä Hauki, Helsinki, 20110401) The beer poured amber and a little bit cloudy. Its head was quite large and white. Aroma had berries, hops and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, toffee, berries, malts, mildly sourness and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter and malty. Not a good one. The berriness and sourness weren’t fitting for this beer. tiong (7739) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 1, 2011
Draught @ Hilpeä Hauki, Helsinkilarsga (7675) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2012
Pours brownish orange with a foamy head. Aroma has hints of fruits. Taste is hoppy and has hints of fruits. Medium body with a bitter finish. Enjoyable.
Medium beige head. Slightly hazy amber body. Roasty malty aroma
with caramelly notes. Dry-sweet caramelly dusty taste with
roasty grainy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish
caramelly chocolatey aftertaste with grainy dusty earthy notes.
Nice, drinkable, and understated. More of a brown ale than a pale
ale, if you ask me. (0.5l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.) olsvammel (7312) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle from Kihoskh. Fruity, candy-like smell. Similar fruity taste, some apples, medium bitterness. Weird hop aroma. Drinkable though. wlajwl (7209) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 22, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 Hazy in appearance with an excellent, juicy hop aroma. The flavor is very much what a great APA is supposed to be, great hoppiness mixed with a good maltiness and a juiciness that balances the dryness. Overall this was slightly more bitter than other APAs, giving this a bit of uniqueness to complement the rest, making this among the best APAs.

Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a very light hazy golden-amber colour with a steady head and crisp body. Aroma of hops and mango. Taste of fresh hops, exotic fruits, oranges, mandarinas, pineapple, flowers, spruce and light herbs. Quaffable and smooth to drink, good one. Beer5000 (6824) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2012
500 ml bottle @ Patricks. Dark golden body with an off-white head. Quite weak malty aroma with just a hint of citric fruit. Flavor is malt with notes of citric fruit and moderate bitterness. Medium body. A good looking OK beer, but pretty straight forward with nothing extra at all. KnutAlbert (6798) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2012
Lovely dark amber, fluffy head.
Aromatic hops lovely interwoven with nice malty body. Herbs, white petter, sutlte rather than extreme. dmac (6574) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Bottle shared at jcwattsruggers. Poured a light gold/amber body with a foamy white average sized head. Aroma of honey, toast and green grapes. Body is nice with a medium mouthfeel, fuzzier carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is a solid step backwards, dry cardboard, grains and straw. Meh.

Klassich feines APA mit einem ordentlichen Schuss an Aromahopfen, dazu Zitrone, etwas Schweiß und einer sehr feinen Trinkbarkeit. Nicht außergewöhnlich, aber klassisch in seiner Art und gleichwohl ausbalanciert.
