3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Tuulensuu, 20120811) According to the bar owner and also the importer the beer is not the maibock despite the same ABV. The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, sourness and grassy hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sourness, grassy hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, sour and bitter. The sourness made me think that does the brewery use the same equipment without thorough cleansing for the bock and sour brews. Nevertheless a tasty brew.
