Aroma is somewhat sweet with lots of grainy malt, some caramel and hints of toffee.Flavour is a bit odd with bready malt, some grain, caramel and hints of grassy hops that get stronger towards the finish. A bit sticky but good still.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Inte min typ. Börjar lovande med nästan red ale liknande utseende, men skummet försvann omedelbart. Vis beska men i övrigt anonym "kort" smak som inte lämnar något intryck.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Pikkulintu, 20120913) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, molasses, grass and hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, grass, hops, molasses and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, a bit metallic and bitter. Maltiness was nice but perhaps too edgy for a good Alt.

Golden brown with a small off-white head. An aroma of caramel and bread with hints of fruit. Slightly roasted flavour, medium bitter an quite dry. Medium carbonation but a bit too prickly for my taste. Otherwise this actually quite good.
