3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (Tommyknocker, Helsinki) at 4.7%
Smells like my mum’s apply crumble. Light palate, a little fizzy. Apple in the taste too, some light spicing too, fits the crumble theme. Palate thin, a bit fizzy. Tons of swirling makes it work better. Light and drinkable and refreshing, I enjoyed it.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from Badger in Beloit. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a thin white head. Below average head retention. Aroma of toasted grainy malts and a lightly sweet finish reminiscent of graham crackers. Faint herbal hops as well. The taste is tart malts and citrus hops. Some green apple and a bit of toastiness. Thin-medium bodied. Fairly boring but not bad.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2010 Bottle from Festival Foods. Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, sweet spices and malt. Light body with flavors of bready malt, coriander, citrus and mild hops. The finish is fruity with a sweetly spiced aftertaste. Decent beer overall.

Strikingly nondescript. It is just not anything that is worth trying, it is as benign as you can make a beer.

Tap @ Kerho.
Pours pale golden color with a small head. Herbal aroma, lemon and mandarin. Fruity flavor, herbs and some grass. Very simple, slightly malty. Not my thing.

Pours clear yellow with white head, aroma has bread, some slight yeast and fruit notes, that’s about it. Aroma has notes of bready cereal, some slight fruit, with a clean finish. Not much to this,

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Bob for bringing this! Poured a hazy, ugly golden with about no head sticking around. The aroma picked up unpleasant (but not entirely offensive) vegetal and pineappley notes with a bit of pale malt behind. The flavor had a lot more pineapple than the notes, and less of the vegetal.. pale malt and bready sweetness at the core, with light bitterness surrounding. Lighter-bodied and sweet on the palate.. somewhat refreshing. This was the best of the 3 (that I tried tonight).

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from our trip through WI/MN. Need to get through these. Pours a golden glowing pour, good haze, touches of golden orange glow on the edges. A good healthy carbonation and small whotish head that dies to a ring clinger, light lacing. Aromas are crisp cereal grains, touches of orange and lemon, light spiced yeast is gentle. Quite grainy and cereal bready malts overall with touches of grass. Initial is lighter bodied up front offering some bready malts, cereal grains, and light grassy qualities. A touch of tart oranges and lemons, a bit fuzzy on the palate. With a nice citrusy sweet tart influence. Some paper and grass comes in more in the after presence on the palate. It’s an interesting beer, perhaps a touch old, papery with an interesting tartness. But still clean Ok, a strange beer..
