3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel - some toffee, some floral fruitiness and light hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and floral fruitiness, light citrus hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and light floral fruitiness with some citrus hoppyness. OK hoppyness for amber ale - but too much caramel for me (and too sweet).

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle (K Kamppi, Tallinn)
Slightly dusty grainy aroma, plenty of real barley. Watery palate, OK carbonation. Tastes actually a bit watery too. Grainy and nutty retronasals. Fuller in the mouth, a richer maltiness, some sweetness. Finish is twiggy with its nutty woodiness. Dry and drying. Some quite acidic hops in the late finish. Better as it warms as it fills out a bit. But still too watery and minerally dry. Didn’t have trouble finishing the glass though.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft @ Slainte. Poured a deep copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is a touch of cardboard and sweet caramel malt. The palate is buttery and sticky... lots of oxidized dactyl qualities... popcorn, caramel, and a little burnt onion rings on the finish. Blah

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours dark auburn with a small, brownish head. Very fruity aroma in the beginning: Pear, peach, apple. Turns caramel, toffee, even lightly buttery later on with light pine and resin. Taste is caramel and pine, light wooden. Very dry. Palate is stingy and carbonated. An alright quaffer.
