2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small bottle. Bright golden body, medium head. Thin malty aroma. Sweet and a bit papery malty taste. Finish is a bit papery too but it must be partly the alcohol. Resembling a boring high alc lager.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Helsinki)
Sweet honey grains in the aroma. Definitely honeymonster approved. Taste is crappy messy malts, paper. Marginally better than the ambree, but that’s all the positivity I can inject into the review.
