1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl can. Rich copper color, thin head. Malty, bitter and loaded with alcohol. Thin, watery, fizzy pop like beverage. Why 1.9 and not 1 - it is well balanced, and drinkable when cold. It is so nasty, that is good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, copper red beer with a beautiful beige head. Nice sweet and fruity aroma. Lots of caramel, some toffee, malt, bread and some alcohol but it’s pretty nicely hidden. Wow what a surprise. I thought this would be awful but it’s actually pretty nice and many times better than the regular strength Karhu. Nice!
