  • 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.
    Tastewww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    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.
    Overallwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    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.
