COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To survive merciless Finnish winter one needs at least three things: proper dose of antidepressant, twisted mind and shitloads of good beer. Herra Huurteinen (Mr. Frost) is an expert of all these things and is willing to teach you! The 2nd child resulting from the passionate relationship between Mikkeller of Copenhagen and Pikkulintu of Helsinki is a charmingly traditional, clean and seducing Altbier that brings out the memories of good old winters when we still had to wear skis, not sneakers. Down with CO2, up with C2H5OH! Enjoy in moderation (unlike most Finns would like to do it).

Nothing to put here. Just numeral ratings on the paper. Well, that’s enough for now.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2010
Pours amber with medium-sized, lasting off-white head; aroma is sweet fruity and slightly grassy with malty notes hiding in the background - unfortunately along with quite pungent hints of cardboard and glue keeping the nose from being completely inviting; flavor is moderate malty, slightly fruity and grassy with good amount of bitterness in the finish; low to moderate carbonation, a bit thin mouthfeel. Not bad, but suffers a bit from the light body.
