1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
1/2 L alu-can abv 4.5 from Kilpisjärvi.
Bright bronze body under a vanilla-caramel foam.
Scents of dark malt, manure, old hops, old pee, old wood.
Tastes malt, soil, sunny hops, grains, roasted something.
Too smooth on palate for the style. Aftertaste earthy notes, roasted malts, short.
Overall alright, but not completed, I assume.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Copper to amber reddish brown clear beer with an initially nice head which soon dissolves into a permanent layer on top of the beer with little lacing. The aroma is pretty macro lager kind of harsh malty and metallica. The taste is a bit better, loafy malty with some sweetness and some sourness. The carbonation is high, covering up the fact that there’s only little bitterness from the hops. There’s also a little bit of the vegetable/pea soup Laitila brewery taste in the finish. Pretty thin. Nothing spectacular or really enjoyable here, but still drinkable. One bonus point for being a gluten free beer produced with wind power.
