COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Ingredients: Floor malted Optic malt; Fuggles and Super Styrian hops.

rosenbergh (7399) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2014
500 ml bottle. Bottle #00469. Courtesy of lusikka. The Grand Vintage Tasting.
Clearish amber colour with a small off-white head. Rennie (or some other medicine used to make you feel alive), dark fruits, sweetness, Coke and mild metal notes in the aroma. The flavour is mild hops, mild bitterness, mild alcohol, dark fruits, sweetness, sugar and some maltiness. This is so much more fresh than the older ones (1999-2002). Not bad at all.
