UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Quite dark in colour. Hoppy, quite a dry bitterness and some hints of herbs, tobacco and grass. Enjoyable beer with good character.

AROMA: floral, spruce, herbs, fruity APPEARANCE: red, clear, frothy disappears slowly TASTE: light sweetness, medium bitterness PALATE: medium body, oily feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish OVERALL: well-rounded red ale that has a full body for such a low ABV, nice sweetness followed by bitterness then a sweet aftertaste. Interesting aromas without overpowering fruitiness.

TET (1756) - FINLAND - FEB 21, 2012
A dark brown beer witha a mdium and beige head. Aroma is nice and interesting, toffee, some liquirice and spicyness. Taste is slightly toffeeish and roasted, wooden and herbs, overally quite dry. Medium- bodied, nice carbonation, quite light, but nice to drink. Quite enjoyable and complex beer, something interesting (blackcurrants?) and unique in the aroma.

BeerBaboon (1615) - FINLAND - FEB 15, 2012
Tumman ruskea, mutta punertava olut. Muodostaa päälleen valkoisen vaahdon. Tuoksu on marjainen, toffeinen ja paahtunut. Maussa on marjaisuutta ja paahtunutta mallasta. Jälkimaku on kuivan katkera. Keskiverto määrä hiilihappoja. Mukavan juotava ja maukas olut.

dogbomb (967) - ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep red/brown, with a nice red corona. Off-White fluffy head. A roasty nose, but a mouthful of chocolate-coffees mixed with mild blackcurrants. There’s a hint of a sprucey hop, and the finish is long, bitter and dry. Rich, complex and a real enjoyable experience.

lusikka (6527) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2012
500 ml bottle. BBE 07/2012.
Pours a dark amber colour with a thick, slightly creamy and natural white colour. Aroma of slightly toasted malts, floral hops and light citrus. Flavour of toasted malts, fruits, bread, strong floral hops and nuts. Medium bodied and probably the richest mouthfeel for such a low ABV beer. FInishes nutty and bitter. Very nice.
