3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber body, white head. Aroma has fruits, caramel malt, hops. Quite dry, could be sweeter for an amber. Good beer, but I miss the hint of cookies in flavour.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught@Bruuveri 5.10. Poured amber color with a white head. Very nice fruity hoppy aroma. Flavor is hops and malt mostly. Quite fruity, ending slightly bitter. Have to agree with earlier raters, the house flavor recognizable, but not as strong as in their other brews though. Probably should have waited longer for the beer to get bit warmer, as it was served very cold. Drinkable, liked to try it again sometimes.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draught at the brewpub) As it normally goes at Bruuveri, this beer was served way too cold. After like 15 minutes some aromas did appear and the harsh house characters were present. Below them I could sense some malts and caramell. For such a new brew palate was quite dry. Flavours followed house characters, too, although at this time bitterness wasn’t the dominating thing which is a positive sign. The beer was nothing special, just easily drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber color, good creamy off-white head. Hayish hoppy aroma, some caramel and typical Bruuveri "dry yeast" house aroma. Good body for 4.1% beer although finish is a bit watery. Caramel, some hops, harsh Bruuveri house flavor (unclean yeast?). Anyway decent session beer.
