2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can, Alko Wiklund in Turku, shared with ogivlado. Poured an amber body (durr) with a medium sized off white head. Dogfood maltiness in the nose, sweet. Grainy malty taste, slightly salty and vaguely bitter. Polleny. Not terrible, just remarkably unimpressive.

330 ml can.
Pours a dark amber colour with a white, thick, lacy head. Aroma of sweet caramel and ripe fruits. Flavour of sweet bready malts, mild fruits and some bitter hops with metallic notes. Quite slick on the palate with soft carbonation and a dry malty finish. I liked the aroma.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml can (Alko) - Gift from Jari - thanks!
5 Rich malty aroma, more so as it warms.
3 Orangy red, reasonably long-lived tight off-white head.
5 Simple sweet malt body, a bit muddy, some emasculated bitter hops. A bit plasticky in places but not in the nice heller bock way.
3- Full sweet malty body, a touch slick, but with decent carbonation. Finish is a touch papery and metallic, and leaves the mouth dry and sticky from that and the sugars.
9- Very much in the ’meh’ band. Whle not showing any flaws, it’s just a caramelly dull lager, and doesn’t have the redeeming crispness that can make lagers good.

Can 0,33 l, 5,5%. It’s amber, very little head, lace more or less. Nose is pretty non-existent, some maltiness, syrup maybe. Flavor has malts, syrup, kind of dull all the way. I made the mistake of expecting an amber ale, but I guess this is just a slightly darker lager. Not exactly a bad one, but when you expect something, you may end up disappointed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
There’s no bad tastes at all! It’s quite close to mämmi (Finnish dessert) with some cream... so the malt is very lovely, smooth, not roasted or burned at all. Quite full taste and aromas, but not much and not much "special".

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can 0,33l from Alko. Deep amber colour with vanishing white head. Faint sweetly malty aroma. Taste is caramelly malty, some berries too. A bit harsh aftertaste.
