1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Finnish christmas beer, reminds me of poor norwegian industrial christmas beer. Not very tasty, the sweetness tastes artificial, and the bitterness feels thin and not very complex. Quite refreshing, but in general poor.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle at Vantaa Airport, FInland. Pours light brown with almost no head. Aroma is quite modest but has some lightly roasted malts and a bit of honey sweetness to it. Taste is quite crisp and feels light for a Christmas beer. Some malty roast notes and maybe even a bit of hop bitterness, leaving way for a longer bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is quite light again, pretty watery - but is somewhat aromatic which is maybe the best part about this beer. Overall his beer is not unpleasant - but there is also little I like about it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014 No expectations - or very low expectations. However such a nice surprise. Very rich taste. Taste of handbrewed quality beers. Fruity - lot of tastes. Good palate. Like a quality dobbelbock Where low alcohol amount doesn’t matter at all. Best supermarket beer I ever had, definitely. Biological product gets Always 0,5 higher than bon-organic One.

Tastes roasted malts, roasted licorice, grains, finnish sour bread, burnt raisins and grilled prunes. Some bitterness to palate, alright balanced. Ends smoothly with dark syrup, roasted caramel, malts. Overall it should go well along with X-mas dinners.
