Bottle. Clear dark amber body with a large off-white head. Modest carbonation. Aroma-taste-dessert apples, with a dry biscuit biiter finish and an indiscript minerally quality. Light bodied. Complex for a modest strength beer.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a little hazy coppery color, topped with a medium small off-white head, a bit creamy. Mild caramel nose, not much else. Some biscuity feel, but mild. Medium full body, gentle sweetness with metallic feel. Some medium bitterness. Not nice after. Terrible aftertaste actually. Ruins the first impression.

Good strong bitter, strong alcoholic smell, no chemical taste or aroma, deep oaky colour, sweet bittery tang, good beer :)

Pourss with no head. Smooth taste, but ultimately bland with a lack of finish. Not a favourite.

500ml bottle in mixed selection box from Waitrose. Aroma bready with subtle malts. Taste heavily bitter, with slightly piney hops. Tastes stronger than the ABV would suggest. Solid but not particularly distinctive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 l bottle from Stockman, Helsinki. Clear amber colour, well looks like a bitter. Taste is also typical of bitters but with some additional dryness, not just bitterness. Even the bottle version has something I can’t quite pinpoint. Not at all watery as some of the bitters below 4% ABV are. I hope I can taste someday the cask version.

500ml bottle - thanks Marduk!
Sweet twiggy bitter. Sweet taste, some mushrooms. Very simple bitter, but I can’t fault it except for lack of excitement. Finish sweet and mushroomy. Its extremely sessionable strength makes it quite impressive. Drinkability decent enough.

500ml bottle (K-supermarket Sello, Espoo). Clear amber color. Medium size, beige head, stays. Malty, metallic hops, sweetish, wet hops in aroma. Sweet, wet hops, bit papery in taste. Nice mellow sweet bitterness and sweet malts in aftertaste. Almost no carbonation. Mellow and pleasant in mouth. Quite drinkable brew.

*Old rating. Best before 30 Sep 2011. The beer is malty bitter. Nice typical Ale-characteristics. Malts with hints of nuts and nice and fresh. Malty fresh aftertaste. Nice but not too deep.
