COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised. Previously 4.6%.
A full-bodied and malty ale with a rounded, smooth fruit palate and a tight, creamy head that laces all the way down the glass. Rich in colour with a smooth, creamy texture and a distinctively strong flavour.

0.5 bottle. Looks rather simply, amber color and a thin, off-white head. The aroma is an even mix between hops and malts, it includes a lot of grass, spruce, some butter and metallic notes. Malty taste, smoke, roasted malts, some caramel and a touch of wood. Medium body, smooth texture and a lively carbonation, interferes with the taste perception. Finish is medium long, introduces a relatively soft, wooden flavor. Overall it is a pleasant and drinkable beer, quite balanced between the malty sweetness and some good doze of bitterness.

ChristianHR (177) - DENMARK - SEP 13, 2013
Har en blomstret og bitter duft. En flot rav farve, desværre med lav til ingen skum. Har en let smag af mørk malt, med en snigende bitter eftersmag. Har en god karbonation.

TET (1549) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2013
A copper beer, with a medium and blond head. The nose of nuts, toffee and wood, with these tradiotinal elements there are also some red berries and roastiness. Taste of nuts, some toffee, but quite low sweetness, some roastiness/smoke, the wooden bitterness in the end. Almost medium bodied, medium carbonation. Traditional bitter, luckily quite fresh with roasted/smoked twist.

Bottled. Pours clear amber in color with a small head. Sweet in aroma with some vanilla and buttery notes. Malty sweet taste with notes of light fruityness too.
