3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas of caramel, chocolate, bread, pilsnermalt. Beer is really nice and dry with flavors of chocolate, toffee, nuts, dark fruits, but not too much coffee, just like a brown ale should be. I am not getting much hops here at all. I dont know what it is, but the beer tastes really mediocre, without being able to put my finger on why. Maybe it’s because of the dryness, i really don’t know.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The colour is a dark reddish brown with an off-white, lacy head. Lots of caramel and roasted malt in the nose, and a sweetish, nutty taste, with a medium bitter finish. A good example of a brown ale and not too strong at 4.7% ABV.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from K-supermarket at Kamppi, Helsinki (€ 3,99) in August 2014. Pours a dark, slightly reddish (mahagony) brown with a brief beige head. Nose is malty and almondy, bready, very slightly spicy and... soapy (it’s not the glass). A bit chocolaty even. Taste is medium sweet with a fairly bitter, slightly metallic and grainy (not very likable) finish. Bready. Medium body and carbonation. Overall not unpleasant, but lacking all aspects that would make it worth remembering, plus a bit too weak and slightly watery. Would go well with warm almonds coated in sugar and spices, I mean the kind they offer on the streets of Old Tallinn.

0,33 liter flaske 4,7 prosent. Fin farge og god smak. Kan anbefales til personer som liker brown ale, samt personer som ikke har prøvd det ennå. Ikke verdens beste øl men vel verd et forsøk, samt et øl man kan drikke etter en pilsner eller lignende øl med "lett smak".
