Extremely drinkable indeed. Nice full mouth-feel with pleasant malty roast aroma and taste. A wee gem, and excellent for a session

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear Amber golden body with no head and just a touch of white foamy lacing. Aroma is pure skunk. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of toffee and sweet caramel malts. Light tinny metallic flavor. Not super offensive, but in no way good.

Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Stas & Max. Clear gold, white head. Corny, a little sugary and papery aroma, tastes sweet, like red apple. light body, soft fizz, sweetish apple finish. OK for what it is.

Pint@Amager Ølhus@approx 12 degrees C. Pours beautifully creamy, cloudy gathering head Guinness style foaming up with tiny bubbles from the bottom of the glass. Golden amber with creamy white head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel and faint hops. Taste and aftertaste backs this up being also slightly sweet, fruity and nutty. Nice, smooth bitter though a bit thin on the palate.

Bad, way too plain, no foam to mention and with Finnish prices (7,90 eur) really not worth the money.
