33 cl, bottled. BB 24.01.16. Dimpled mug. Pours minimally cloudy yellow with a decent white head. Aroma: Interesting, rapsberry cheesecake! Maybe some rye in the base of the cake. Taste: Medium+ sweet, quite low bitterness. Raspberry. Notes of oat porridge. Some sugary sweetness. Palate: Near medium body, warming alcohol. Not bad, interesting, just not something I fancy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Many thanks to Finn for giving me this 330ml bottle that he had bought in northern Finland. Foggy golden body, dense pearl white head, slowly diminishing. Inviting aroma of bread-like malts and herbal hops. Taste of dried fruit, slightly jammy, tolerable honey sweetness, grain, and noble hops. Dry, bittersweet ending. Fine bodied. Likable (at home in Tromsø 14.03.2015).
