1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
33 cl bottle as "Lapin Kulta Juhlaolut 130" @ oh6gdx, BBE 02/2004
Aroma has cloudberries (!), sweetish malt and honey. Flavour has moldy cellar notes, malt, honey and some cloudberries, Not sure if the taste of old lager creates the illusion of cloudberries or not.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled (old collection). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is clearly cloudberry, some slight sweet old malts and hops. Cloudberry dominates the aroma after all these years. Flavour is more random berries, some sweet malts, herbs. After some sips, the cloudberry gets into the flavour too. And in this one I don’t believe in the placebo effect, as I just had frozen cloudberries a few times last week. Surprisingly good after all these years (BBE 02/2004).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light, near golden, thin white head, no lace. Fresh nose with notes of cloudberry. Light body, balanced, moderate bitter, cloudberry-like. Light, bitter and pretty long finish. Better that average Lapin Kulta thanks to cloudberry.
