2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Malzig-süßer Antrunk, etwas künstlich durch die Zuckerung. Etwas wässrig werdend, holzig. Die Süße ist angenehm, tendiert im Mittelteil aber dazu, zu stark zu sein. Klebriger Abgang.

Draught at Apotek, Turku. Dark reddish brown, no head, looks just like coke. Sweet rye bread aroma, little molasses, very mild. Flavor is rye breadm coke like herbs, minerals, not that sweet, hollow herbal finish. Light to medium bodied, coarse soda carbonation. Did I already mention this is pretty much like coke?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Beershop tent at the Rujanfest in Zagreb.
Poured a dark brown body with a huge beige head. Grainy nose, some dark chocolate and figs. Dried figs in the taste too, caramel and some hopiness that doesn’t provide almost any bitterness but goes into the aftertaste. Soft mouthfeel. Balanced and I kinda like it.
