COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Floor malted Optic malt; Fuggles and Super Styrian hops.
Edition of 100,000
This full-bodied vintage is brewed with Fuggles and Super Styrian hops that create a tapestry of rich, spicy flavours. Orange, citrus and fruitcake notes are all present, and are balanced well with the biscuity, creamy malt flavours leaving a soft and warming finish.

rosenbergh (7642) - 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.

Alcohol shows itself.
