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).
