The rye gives very distinct sour (?) taste which I donít like that much. Interesting experiment, but it looks like itís gone to itís end. Like so many other finnish beer experiments.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Clear, copper color, large, foamy head. Very mild, sweetish, rye-malty aroma, that quickly turns into metallic. This beer is brewed using ~10% of rye malt, which gives the taste a little more character. The flavor is smooth and malty, with hints of rye bread. There are no hops to speak of. The aftertaste is malty but quite nonexistent. Very carbonated, light to medium-bodied palate. A better-than-average, but too metallic and carbonated Finnish lager.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2004 Bottle
Smallish head, some brown colour maybe. Lots of CO2. Rye-amber colour. Not much aroma: some fruit and malt. Sweet malty taste mixed with carbonation fading to almost non-existent aftertaste. Looks better than tastes, plain beer: drinkable but gives much less than colour and name(+label) promise. Suprised how different comments stronger version has got. (4/4/5/3/9 2.5)
Re-rated, bottled (BB 12/2004)
Clear copper color with nice tanned head. Nose has apple and rye-bread. Malty, rye comes out well. This reminds me about some Lithuanian (not-so-excellent) lagers. (4/3/4/2/9 2.2)
