My first Finnish beer, this is all sweet malts on the nose and tastes of caramel and dark fruits, with an odd blend of spices (must be the juniper twigs) and a bit of a bitter hop kick at the finish. Not to be confused with ’Finnish.’ The brewery said it was brewed with a large dose of Finnish attitude. I’ll go with that. Not a bad beer at all.

Bottled. A hazy red-amber beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma is sweet with notes of nuts, fruit, alcohol, and bread. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of malt and caramel as well as medium notes of nuts, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.
