3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(pint can) Pours red amber, with a creamy buff head. Aroma is pleasantly complex - Butter biscuit, slightly sweet, a bit of spice. Taste starts like a Scotch Ale, slightly sweet, malty, then the finish adds a dry, bitter component to the sweeter start, creating some balance to the initial Scotch Ale impression. Mouthful is unctous leaving some sweet and some bitter on the palate - creme brulee with bitter orange. Overall a very interesting brew. The rye and the hops add a new, and pleasant dimension to what would otherwise be a somewhat familiar profile

Draught @Tommyknocker, Helsinki. Pours dark reddish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of malts, caramel, toffee, berries and hints of sourness. Taste is filled with off flavors, sourness, earthiness and tart notes with some berries and caramely malts. Finish is messy and feels off with some sourness, berries and caramel. Feels off.

Pours bubbly red orange with a massive foamy and noisy yellowed head. Naturally forming wet lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and rye with a touch of pepper. Taste follows - quite sweet. Caramel with rye malts and a nice mild hoppy bitterness. Well-balanced for sure. A touch of booze out back. Good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A small taste from tap @ One Pint Pub. Pours slightly cloudy amber with a high off-white head. Aroma is malts with some brett. Flavor is slightly fruity malts with some more brett and hops. It’s not bad but I’m pretty sure this shouldn’t be sour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap@1pp. Orange-reddish hazy. Vinegar and funk on nose, resinous malty, pines. Fullish body. Not really tart, but dryish feel still, bitter, pine biting finish. Possibly a foul keg unless its supposed to smell like a sour. Lots of malts, sort of nice easy body tho for the abv and malt presence (..which might be unintended). Flavourful, but feels just messy now.
