Dark brown color. Sweet malty aroma.
Caramelly malts on flavor also. Suprisingly drinkable.
Alcohol mostly warms on the aftertaste.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a small white frothy head. Grainy malt aroma, sugar and some caramel. Taste is pure malty sweet, some hints of bitterness in the finish and a bit boozy. A bit metallic aftertaste. If you want to get wasted it will do, otherwise nothing special. Not unpleasant.

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 itís pretty nicely hidden. Wow what a surprise. I thought this would be awful but itís actually pretty nice and many times better than the regular strength Karhu. Nice!
