Cloudy golden honey, bit sparkling, thin foggy film of foam with few bigger bubbles. Semisweet malt, bread, caramel tones. Medium body, soft round feel, low carbonation, malty and sweet, bit ripe banana in finish. Ok, minimalistic but ok flavors, Palate is good and drinkability also.

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).

Flaske 330ml fra Alko Muonio. Flaske 330ml. Gylden. Middels høyt skum som daler sakte. Aroma av malt & gress. Behagelig myk munnfølelse. Smaken er malt med et lite innslag av krydder. Blir vel søt.

330ml bottle (Koht Winter Auction, Tallinn)
Sweet estery, but also slightly starchy, but still a bit bready. Nice straw colour with a slight haze, brief white head. Full sweet malty body, quite pleasant bready aspects, again a fair level of esters - there’s even a nice little orangey twist. Improves after the aroma, decentish. Finish has gentle bitterness, and some nice sweet bready malts too.
