2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Boks 0,5l fra Kilpishalli. Dyp mørkebrun. Lavt skum med litt lacing. Beskjeden maltaroma. Smaken har antydning til røstet malt men ualminnelig kjedelig.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma is not much really. A bit of dark maltiness. Taste is very bland too, like carbonated water with a bit of maltiness. Inoffensive. Alright palate. Funny how flavorless it is.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can 50 cl. Pours brown dark with big brown white head. Really metallic taste at start, probably from the can and the coldness. Not a good start one might say. Notes of roasted malts, caramel, bread. Pretty bland taste. Needs much more character.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml can (S Market, Helsinki)
Sweet slightly mashy roast aroma. Looks good - very dark, and a persistent tan head. Wateryish in the mouth, Sweet and raw, underfermented. Metallic. A touch roasted, but it’s ashy and metallic. More so in finish. Drying chemical metallic and ashy dryness. Quite unpleasant. Shame, it looked OK.
