TET (1759) - FINLAND - APR 18, 2008
Brown beer with thin beige head. Flakes of yeast is not very temptating. Aroma is very sweet: mallts and sugar. Flavour is not aroma-like but sweetness is appropriate, roasted and rather bitter. Surprisingly watery to drink because sugary aroma and flavour normally makes body to more dence. Changes better when beer is warmer. This is too typical beer without anything personal.

Bottle, de Wildeman, Amsterdam. Dark brown colour, thin white lingering head. Malty,chocolate, raisin.aroma. Taste is more of the same, quite sweet and smooth, but lacks a knockout punch somehow.
