2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber light off white head. Some spots of lace. Rather sweet in the nose. Mostly of husk and caramel. Almost an aroma of basil or oregano. I think I am just imagining it because the beer is from Italy. Shrug. Strong caramel in the taste. Less herbal notes, but still present. Some notes of bitterness, but not all that much. The body is thick and a touch syrupy. Palaete is cloying and has an overly sweet finish.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Draught@Rotterdam, Helsinki) Clear amber with a very small, fading head. Mild, a bit strange and stuffy aroma of vegetably malt and hints of cinnamon. Toffee-malty, neutral and acidic flavor with some diacetyl and cardboard. Light to medium-bodied, fizzy palate. An unclean and boring vienna, served way too cold and maybe not at its best.

Bottle. Clear amber color, quickly diminishing head. Aroma of toast, grain, and honey with a bit of sulfur. Sweet grainy malt/ honey-nut flavor with no real body or hop profile to balance it out. A thin, one-dimensional dark lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foam with a frothy top fine to large sized white colored bubbles that was mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent softly carbonated light and a poor lacing. The smooth aroma was malty and cinnamon. The crisp and clean smooth mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of spices and mild caramel. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clean, sweet wort smell emanates from this golden-amber lager. Nice creamy head with good lacing. The flavor tones down a bit, but still delivers a sweet caramel taste with just enough floral bitterness to keep it in check. The finish is a lasting caramel/toffee sweetness. Not exceptional, but quite enjoyable.
