Draught@Beer Hunters as "Extra Pils"
Clear amber color, small white head. A bit perfumic, woody-malty aroma. Quite malty, alcoholic, ryeish flavor. Also some sweetness. Bittery aftertaste. Kind of unbalanced feeling. Anyway not a disaster, drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Keg (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Mid orange, thin head. Fruity toffee and caramel aroma - quite big. Very fizzy in the mouth, needs a lot of swirling. Aroma becomes a bit of wet sheep, a little creamy, some hops and lightly roasted malt, but a bit lagery. Grainy and shreddies in the taste. Feels a bit flat, but that’s probably as it was keg.
