    After a hard week of work and studying, it was time to relax with a beer. This one had been standing in my fridge for a couple of weeks, so I decided to try it out. Raasted Bryghus is a Danish craft brewery, that has been brewing since 2005. This Pale Ale, is hopped with Simcoe, Cascade, and Columbus, and has been brewed at De Proef in Belgium. This is the 4.5% version (a 5% version has also been brewed at Brewdog), and can thus be bought at the larger supermarkets here in Finland. Can’t find any info on malts or IBUs, but hopefully this one should be really tasty.

    Appearancewww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    The beer has an amber color and is slighty hazy. The beer has a fluffy off-white-colored head, that quite quickly collapses, leaving some lacing along the glass.
    Smellwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    The aroma is dominated by hop tones, with hints of citrus, tropical fruits and some caramel. The aroma is on the light side.

    There are some fruity and floral notes in the taste as well, but these are not as present as in the aroma. These are joined by a slightly toasty maltiness and some caramel tones, that together with the hops, end in a slightly bitter and dry finish.

    The beer has a medium-light body, and a moderate-low carbonation level, making it quite pleasant to drink. The beer is smooth, but feels a bit watery.

    This was a surprisingly good APA, that is available from the larger supermarkets here in Finland. This one clearly tried to focus on the hops, but I felt it was a bit lacking in the flavor department. Still a beer I would drink again. It's a shame it's a bit on the expensive side, but overall a very refreshing beer.
