  • Here is another Citra single hopped pale ale, which has gotten some good reviews in the Finnish beer community. It is also readily available in larger K-Supermarkets and K-Citymarkets (here in Finland), so it should be easy to find if you want to try it out. Note: The picture above makes the beer seem darker and redder than it really is.

    The beer has a pale yellow-golden color and is slightly hazy. The beer has a slight white head, that leaves a little lacing along the glass.
    The beer has a smooth fruity and floral aroma, featuring tropical fruits and citrus. Definitely a lot of typical Citra aroma. Not much maltiness in the aroma.
    The flavour is full of sweet, floral and fruity Citra hops. There is some mango, orange and lemon, that combine with a light and sweet maltiness. The flavour finishes quite dry with a very slight bitterness and some fruitiness.
    The beer has a quite light body with a low level of carbonation. The beer is very easy to drink and refreshing.
    The beer is great showcase of the fruity Citra hop, and a very refreshing beer. It isn't super hoppy, bitter, or malty, but a well balanced session beer that's light and tasty.
