2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap @ Oluttupa Viisi Penniä. Pours a slightly hazy amber. Aroma is grapefruity, citrusy with a slight whiff of rotten egg or vegetable. Taste is grapefruity, rather mild, some citrus, that rotten something there on the outskirts as well. Palate is alright. Definitely not a vienna though.
Probably another one in need of a re-rate. Probably not in proper condition.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2012 Amber colour, beige head. Rubbery aroma, also some spices. Rather stinging, tries to be herby but doesn’t succeed so well.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught @ brewpub. Clear copper w/ quite thick pale head. Mildly malty and syrupy nose. Some banana spiciness. Toasty maltiness, little spices and hops in the flavor. Clean and simple, like all Koulu brews I’ve had.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Koulu. Copper with thick off white / even beigish lacing head. Nose is syrupy, buttery, malty, full and sweet. Flavor is sweetish, malty, syrupy, a bit toasted bread, even hoppiness and some butterness to round it up. I was told it’s a bitter, but could be vienna too. Nothing summerlike in this, but fairly musty, non-refreshing, full wintery beer to me. Good and tasty.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught@Koulu. Dark golden in colour. Minor white head. It has a malty and hoppy aroma with a sweetness to it. It has a dry and malty taste, kinda sparkling but not all that special. I must agree with omhper when he states that it’s : "A dull beer served in a lovely environment.".

Amber. Sweet and malty aroma turns into quite bitter hoppiness in the flavor. Not especially summery.
