3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught@Pikkulintu, rated 2011-07-22) Hazy, darkish brown with a small, lasting head. Berry-ryeish-malty, aromatic-american-hoppy nose. Lots of (aroma) hops and berryish maltiness in the flavor, with a faint bitterness biting in the finish. Quite full body considering the ABV, yet also quite tingly carbonated. A very tasty red ale, if you care about the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu
Rather light aroma has some nuts. Flavour has suprising amount of hops, causing the taste of exotic, aged fruits. Also some nuts. The hops cause a bit dryish palate. Rather hoppy and dry for an amber ale, too nutty and woody for me.

Pours a dark amber colour with a small, white, thick head. Aroma of sweet berries and floral hops. Flavour of sweet malts, floral hops, sweet berries and some nuts. Medium bodied with a sweet, berry-like finish. A bit too sweet for me but I love the bitterness here.

Deep amber color, steady creamy beige head, lace. Bready, berryish aroma. Medium-bodied. Berryish, bready flavor. Some caramel. Typical "Danish flavors" in this brew. Way too bready and berryish.
