Keg (Kaisla, Helsinki)
5 Sweet fruity cranberry aroma, mostly like cranberry juice, and rather lacking beer
4 Decent reddy brown, small ring head
6 Very much cranberry juice up front, and in the retronasals. Itís only on swallowing that a rather pleasant toffeeish roast malt appears.
3 Gentle carbonation, smooth texture in the mouth. However, itís not all positive. The cranberry juice aspect provides an unwelcome watery
sharpness akin to juice. Itís not a lambicky tartness, donít misunderstand.
11 Seems like someone took a good english strong ale and threw in a load of cranberry juice. Thatís just dumb.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Pours very hazy brown with a small, but longlasting white head; aroma of cranberries in the front is also slightly earthy and sweet; flavor is heavily based on cranberries - itís slightly sour, but also quite sweet - and not too much malt or hops can be found; body is medium with low carbonation. Smells and tastes a bit too much just like your average cranberrry juice to be fully successive. Gets boring quickly.

Bottled @ Copenhagen 2010. Murky brown color, short head. Aroma of blue cheese, hint of cranberry. Taste of blue cheese with a hint of cranberry. I like blue cheese aside my beer, not IN my beer please. Sucky again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big beige coarseish lasting head. Hazy deep red body. Sharpish sugary cranberry aroma with yoghurty notes. Sweet-acidic wooden cranberry taste with bitter background. Full body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry-bitter sugary cranberry aftertaste with acidic wooden metallic tinge. Interesting, extremely unusual, and quite challenging. The cranberry really makes it stand out. (0.5l bottle, HÝkeren, Copenhagen.)
