Review from a bottle purchased in Helsinki. Brief impressions below:

A: ~3-3.5 inches wide. Off-white colour. Nice frothiness. Fair creaminess. Soft-looking, with an above average consistency. Retention is good - ~5-6 minutes. Leaves no lacing as it recedes.

Body is a clear pale copper of average vibrance. Clean, with no visible yeast particulate or hop sediment.

Sm: Hop character is generic and floral. Pale malts. Clean barley.

That's it...

Aromatic intensity is average. Suggests a simple shallow brew with no interesting characteristics.

T: A simple one-two punch of floral hops and pale malts. Yes, it's shallow, but it's effective, and its simplicity translates to natural balance and cohesion.

Still, the discerning drinker will be disappointed with its mediocre hop profile. Lacks any intricacy or nuance of note.

Mf: Smooth, wet, light-bodied, somewhat refreshing, and crisp.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, harsh, rough, or scratchy.

O: Not gestalt, but cohesive and enjoyable. It's highly drinkable, and while there's no harmony of texture and taste, the casual drinker will find it pleasant and approachable. I wouldn't buy it again, but there are far worse Finnish pale ales. Not worth seeking out, but you could do worse. Though the price point is atrocious given the (lack of) quality...

The colour is pale gold (8 EBC), the liquid clear. The three finger head is white and airy. Some lacing occurs.

The smell is sweet with lots of high alcohols. Some peppery-flowery hops, hints of orange peel and wet paper.

The taste is papery and semi-sweet. Some paper and pulp. Medium body. The aftertaste is smooth with some pale malt and floral hops. The finish is sweet.

The carbonation is medium strong, the mid-sized bubbles short-lived. The liquid is semi-smooth and a little thick.

A tired pale ale, not much hops here.
