Tap @ Villi Wäinö, Helsinki as Stadin New Zealand Pils 14/07/13. Pours a hale orange with a large, white head. Aroma is strongly of fruity hops. Grapefruit and citrus, a tad of pale malts. Taste is strongly hoppy too with the fruitiness in the forefront. Malts in the background again, but hops in front. Grapefruit and pine. Light and well carbonated. An excellent quaffer for warm weathers. Delicious and delightful. Andy_ (1110) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Labeled as Stadin New Zealand Pils. Orange clear beer with white head leaving little lacing on the glass. Aroma has orange, tangerine, berries and malty sweetness. Flavor is grainy malty, fruity and berryish sweet and bitter. The finish is long, bitter and woody. The palate is medium full and carbonation is moderate. The mouthfeel is a bit sticky. A really refreshing beer and a great balance between the maltiness of the pils and the fruitiness and bitterness of the NZ hops. This is so far the best hoppy pale lager I’ve yet had. tiong (7342) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2013

Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops, bready malts and hints of butter. Taste is grassy and malty with hints of lemony hops, butter and bread. Finish is dry, bitter and hoppy with hints of lemon and butter. Okay, quite hoppy pils.

Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of caramel, hops, citric fruits, some orange zest and pale malts. Flavour of goose berries, citric fruits, hops, grass, pale malts and caramel, some straw also. Bitter and dry palate. Decent.
Draught. Golden in color with a small head. A bit of grass and some fruity citrus in aroma. Flavor is a
bit more to the citrus side however, with a light bitter finish though. Quite nice and tasty pils with a
somewhat citrusfruity aftertaste.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours golden with a slight haze and a white head. Decently flowery hops in the nose, but also a little vegetables. Medium body, a little sweet malts and then a fairly solid hop kick from good presumably German hops. Not bad. 260713 yespr (45875) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2013

Tap (Black Door, Helsinki) (6:3:6:4-:13=3.2-)lusikka (7814) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Very herbal nettle tea aroma. same in the taste, hayey and grassy. Fairly watery body, but refreshing. Some woodiness. Herbal almost rose-pepper finish. Simple, a little flat in the palate. But very drinkable and interesting. Anna thinks it’s more 3.3+, but she should get her own account.
Draught @ Black Door, Helsinki. Pours a golden colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of grassy hops, some citrus and caramel. Flavour of pale malts, bitter grassy hops, citrus, nettles and hay. Light bodied and a dry grassy finish. Good.
