330 ml bottle. Amber color, off-white head. Juniper aroma with some syrupy malts. Somewhat fruity flavor with rye and caramel. Light body and carbonation, watery mouthfeel. Might be good if it wasn’t so thin.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2007 Looks good, smells horrible, tastes funky. Nose has some very unpleasant skunkiness, like butter gone bad. Taste has the same funkiness. I couldn’t get over the fact that it just smelled and tasted like a dated butter. Mouthfeel was pleasant and there were some underlaying goodness too, I just didn’t get there yet. Re-rate (original 1.6): The previous bottle must’ve been a bad one or my palate just wasn’t ready for it. Had another and I enjoyed it very much. There is some ryeish "skunkiness" to it, but overall feel is nicely fresh and balanced with a rye twist. It’s very fresh when cold, propably due to juniper, which is otherwise quite subtly present. Actually a very refreshing beer, if not a bit thin. I would like to see this with a bit more body.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle. Golden orange colour, very small and quickly disappearing white head. Sweet malty aroma with a hint of juniper, a little metallic. The flavour is also sweet, with fruits and honey. Very low carbonation. Not bad, but not really to my taste.

Reminds me of finnish beer type called "sahti". Not very qood, still a bit unique beer.

Pours slightly hazy, amber colour with almost no head. Aroma has light malts, heavy note of juniper, also some berries, yeast and spices. Carbonated, light mouthfeel, quite watery body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I am not sure what happened but the new batch of this tasted very different, sweet, juniper in the nose, not much carbonation and a sour spicy aftertaste. A wee bit thin but still a hoot for a finnish ordinary shop strenght beer.If this was somehow spoiled they should mess up more!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head disappears fast and leaves practically no lacing. Color is hazy orange, mead-like. Toffee and malts in aroma. Flavor is mild and palate is quite odd. Flavor is sweet, mildly malty with dry, wooden ending. Mouthfeel is lubric and not at all carbonated.

Bottle, 33cl from Citymarket Kokkola. Small white head, not long lasting. Aroma is hard to catch a little strange, malts!? Semi-sweet taste.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beatiful deep orange color, Smells of raspberry, caramel.. Taste is fruity with a interesting finish. Juniper adds some depth to this nicely.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Lovely coppery color. My nose cant pick up anything special or even strong. No unique flavors, easy drinking lager. Quite sweet. A bit vatery and flat. Good drinking stuff nothing special and the label is pretty!
