Here is another one from Stadin Panimo. A Citra single hopped American Pale Ale. 33 IBU. Batch 386.
[easyreview title=”Stadin Panimo Citra Pale Ale” cat1title=”Appearance” cat1detail=”The beer has a golden-amber color, and is slighty hazy (the beer is unfiltered and bottle-conditioned), with a slight white head (producing some lacing along the glass). Very similar appearance to their Simcoe Lager.” cat1rating=”4″ cat2title=”Smell” cat2detail=”The beer has a very fruity aroma, with citrus, mango and tropical fruits. You can definitely feel the presence of Citra. Slight sweetness is also present.” cat2rating=”4″ cat3title=”Taste” cat3detail=”The initial flavour is sweet and fruity, with a strong presence of tropical fruit. The fruity hop flavours dominate, with a weak malt presence. The flavour ends quite dry, with just a slight bitter tingle on the tongue. The flavours could be a bit stronger, and it almost feels like this beer has been watered down.” cat3rating=”3.5″ cat4title=”Mouthfeel” cat4detail=”The body is quite dry and light, and the beer has moderate carbonation. The beer is easy to drink and refreshing, but I feel it would benefit from a stronger body.” cat4rating=”3″ summary=”I think this beer was slightly better than Stadin Panimo’s Simcoe Lager, and it was a great example of the fruity properties of the Citra hop. A good beer, at a not all too bad price, from a Finnish microbrewery means I will probably drink this again, and buy Stadin Panimo’s products in the future.”]
