A friend shared a few bottles of this export-only beer. The label reads it's a mix of chinook and cascade hops for Sinebrychoffin in Finland. This beer reminds me of an English ESB (with American hops). There's a mellow caramel and bread crust malt profile followed by bigger pine and citrus hops with a herbal twist from the chinook. Very tasty and drinkable. This a great session ale I wish we had in the U.S.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pale yellow, bubbly. Pours a small one finger head that recedes very quickly.

Aroma: Flowery hops with a hint of honey sweetness. Refreshing.

Taste: Quite light, but rather drinkable. Has characteristics of a hoppy lager rather than an APA in fact. The hops give way to a light malty sweetness, with some citrus undertones.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, medium carbonation

Overall: It's okay, but nothing amazing. A nice session ale, which I've in fact often had in bars in Helsinki, as you can get it in quite a few places. Decent value for money.

This is quite a decent beer that Brooklyn has made.

The hop profile is quite smooth, so it almost seems like it adjunct with wheat. There is a light hop start and then it has a bread and caramel profile and has a really good smooth malty finish. The malty clean finish is quite nice.

This is a great summer beer. I do prefer more hoppy beers, but the smooth and wonderful malty clean finish is done really well.
