lusikka (6575) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2012
3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ the brewpub, San Francisco. Rated on 18.10.2012.
Pours a hazy brownish copper colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of wheat, dark chocolate and banana esthers. Flavour of wheat, lactic acid, bread, nuts and banana esthers again. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a sour, sweetish banana finish. Not sure if this is supposed to be sour but I still like it.

Tap at the brewpub, 16/08/12. Ugly red-brown murk without a head. Spiced cookie, chocolate hints, sahti, sweet veg aroma. Mace and cinammon, clove on sweet potato, dough, banana notes. Pretty tasty- almost the pick of the samplers.
