Slightly hazy orangeish golden colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, floral and grassy hops with some slight maltyness. Flavour is fruits, caramel, some mild bready and floral notes as well. Pleasantly balanced. lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2011

Pours a clear copper colour with a minimal lacy head. Aroma of grainy malts and light hops. Flavour of grainy malts, mild hops, caramel and honey. Light bodied with a slick and slightly dry finish. Basic bitter.
(Draught at Maltainen Riekko, Helsinki) The beer poured amber and a little bit hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had toffee, citricness and hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, toffee, hops, citricness, orange, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter. Quite OK beer but it lacked character and it was a bit boring, too. tiong (7263) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2010

Dull and weak bitter. Nice fruity aroma but taste lacks hops and bitterness.

6+ Heavy bitter aroma - dense and earthy
3 Orange, large off-white head.
6 Fruity retronasals, apple, perhaps. Clean bready malt base, english bitter hops.
3 Refreshing palate. Crisp carbonation. Finish only gently fruity and bitter.
12 Lacking life. Too much keg-type fizziness. But still pretty OK.
Rerate: 300ml bottle (?, Helsinki)

4 Slightly hazy gold, large tight head.
