3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki , American Week 2007).
Wonderful rounded malty brown aroma. Tastewise it’s a bit of an enigma - a strange combination of maltiness and hoppiness with some fruitiness too, and at the very end some rose petals. A bit of an uncoordinated mishmash to sell itself well.
