2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can shared at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks oh6gdx for this can. Clear nice deep reddish amber. Aroma is a bit oxidized with caramel, rye, toasted grains, chocolate and some spicy notes. Oxidized flavor with cardboard, caramel, malt, toastiness and some fruitiness. Light to medium-bodied. Seems too old.

0,5 l can from Master’s Delicacy. Pours dark red with a medium tan head. Aroma is plenty of malts, as is the flavor. Slightly roasted. Rye and oats give it character. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown body, small offwhite head. Aroma has sweet rye bread, malts and nuts. Flavour is sweet and bit sharp because of the rye. Bready. Little bit hops needed to balance this one. If hoppy, could bed decent brown ale though this is lager.

Quite nice, more "European" brew! Could have more body, still clearly better than most finnish lagers.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet slightly roasted malting has dark bread, some earthy notes, syrup, dark fruits. Dark ruby red, clear, one finger head is frothy and medium long. Taste is bit sweet and mildly roasted, light body, bit watery feel, low carbonation, finish highly malted and sweet. Dark and slightly roasted but light to near watery palate beer. More nuances and body would be nice.
