From the archives: Had this in a pint can, during major trip in Finland. Interesting beer in general. Unfortunately, it is to watery, but some kind of smoked taste is there. Good addition to summer grill.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 bottle. Yellow body and a white head. Malty and a bit sweet with a hint of tar and smoke. The body is way too thin to keep this interesting. They should have tried to make an Imperial Tar Porter or something.
