334ml bottle from Alko Arkadia, cola brown colour, small frothy mostly lasting off-white head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of roast dark bread, cookie, molasses and light coffee with light spicy hops. Taste is initally balanced and moderately acidic, turning into a lightly bitter slightly burnt finish. Medium body, lively carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Fairly simple and easy to drink dark lager that still is distiguishable as one.
