bierkoning (10377) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Dark brown color. caramel and brown sugar in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor, caramelly. Just enough grassy hops to counterweight to the sweetness. Low on carbon. Better as expected after the simple aroma.

Ernest (6258) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle at Helsinki Bryggeri. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is light brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel), moderately yeasty (dough), with light notes of orange peel, metal, celery. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Clunky/yeasty/dirty and sour. Terrible compared to Helsinki’s brewpub-brewed beers, so it’s hard not to blame Saimaan for this.

MikeKeller (889) - Kemi, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle from the Bryggeri Helsinki brewpub’s shop. Clear dark brown beer with a very small head. Dark bready malty aroma. Taste is a bit sweet, malty and has some vanilla as well. Very soft mouthfeel. Ligh to medium body. Classic Brit style brown ale. Not bad, just not anything very memorable.
