Hoppy and initially tasty and drinkable. Body on the thin side. A bit of spice not much. Low alcohol a plus..I can get another beer in. Average beer overall, easy to drink. OK to have once. Balance of bitterness and sweetness on the latter. Expiry June 2006.

(12 oz bottles: Obtained in trades with hopscotch and shadey, thanks Eric and Shane!) Purchase before Jun, 2006. The nose is hoppy, grassy, caramely and malty, but not all that sweet. Caramely maltiness is moderately sweet-tasting and lightly roasty, but hops is clearly in evidence as well, both in actual flavor and in the moderate, balancing level of bitterness. Medium-full bodied and gently carbonated, but the beer deposits a slick, oily coating in my mouth, though I don’t taste its usual cause. Medium brown color with near-perfect clarity. Two fingers of light-tan head gradually settles to a thin, but complete layer, leaving a dense foam on the glass. A nice, simple winter beer.

Decent Winter Ale, Very dark, hints of chocolate in the mix, with nice burnt malt and hops aftertaste. Good for a snowy evening!

oh6gdx (20003) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2006
Bottled. Ruby red, not much head. Grassy, hoppy nose with ryeish and fruity notes. Also some weak barnyardish notes can be found. Strong grassy malty and hoppy flavour with some spicy hints. Quite watery palate after all the different stronger ABV stuff. Good for a 4,5% though.
