3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours a dark amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of sweet English toffee, grains, some herbal notes and bread. Sweet flavour of bready malts, toffee, grassy bitterness, honey and some herbs. Medium bodied and a bit creamy mouthfeel. Malty and sweet, yet drinkability is good. Skip breakfast and have this, it’s the same.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I had this bottle for two years stored at room temperature in a non-air-conditioned lower-level room in a box. I had hope that was enough but it is a clear glass bottle and the aroma is definitely Skunky which is the dominant factor. Thankfully the skunk didn't come through in the flavor at all which had Malt, toffee hop and a hint of roast plus some carbonic tang. Body is good and it's very drinkable beer.
