Vili (245) - FINLAND - FEB 25, 2016
50cl can. Dark amber pour with thick, frothy, white head, lots of lacing. Aromas of herbs, wet leaves and cellar. Taste is weirdly strongly malty and watery at the same time. Some bitterness as well. Low carbonation, bland palate. Aftertaste is weak and malty, alcohol pushes through. Drinkable, but not very enjoyable.
