Bottle @ Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki, Finland. Dark brown beer with a light head. The aroma is lightly malty and the flavour is slightly roasted and quite weakly malty. Overall a plainly malty and weakly dry beer.

Thanks to tderoeck for the bottle. Amber color, great mouthfeel, well-balanced, I thought. I haven’t had any other beers from this brewery, but I’d like to try based on this beer. Pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Trendly made to finnish taste, a bit more bitterness added (read taste), basic strong lager, bit alcoholic taste but still strong as a beer

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!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2007 Biggish offwhite head over chestnut brown body. Faint, sweetish aroma with notes alcohol, caramel, and a little grass. Taste is sweet roasty caramel with notes of grass and marzipan. Slick, slightly buttery mouthfeel. Watery aftertaste with some bitterness, lingering alcohol taste and some alcohol heat. Quite good if warm, but a bit much alcohol. (0.33l bottle.)
