3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kaatuu lasiin colanvärisenä ja kirkkaana, runsaalla rusehtavanvalkoisella vaahdolla. Haju on maltainen, viljainen ja lievästi ruohoinen. Maku on runsaan maltainen ja hieman viljainen. Suutuntuma on ohuehko, mutta humalan tuntee kuitenkin. Kokonaisuutena helposti juotava, mutta hieman pliisu olut, joka ei itsessäni suuria tunteita herätä.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells not great, tastes more, a little sweet and metallic taste. The aftertaste disappears quickly. I give it a decent rating because it was perfectly okay to drink anyway. Would still recomend to try this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a really nice deep copper, with a white head.
Malty aroma with lots of caramel, toffee, hops, chocolate, bread, figs, honey.
Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2.
Malty, balanced taste, caramel, faint diacetyl, light chocolate, honey, dried fruits.
Not overly complex, but very well made, and highly enjoyable. (2012-12-21)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. 330ml. Pours medium-sized, creamy, yellow-green head, thinning out to a decent, thin head that covers the whole surface for a good while, with fine bubbles. Clear, orange-copper body. Mid carbonation. Aroma - Heavy, dark caramel & choc malt. Salty crackerish malt too & quite cerealish. Some savoury, vegetabley smell (not sulphurous). Fruity, lightly estery yeast and spiciness. Lightly spicy & herby hops. Taste - Balanced. Bready, cracker, cereal malt and savoury mineralness. Some dark, slightly sweet, molasses and fruity brown sugar & dark choc. Hops are light and herby, light bitterness. Lightly hoppy, very lightly bitter finish; over quickly, leaving clean palate. Heavyish, mid-full body, warming, smooth. Unusually dark malty tasting for a lager, but somewhat lacking on the hop-front: Hops are dull and too far back in the mix.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
21 nov 2012, bottle. Reddish/brown, hazy with lots of floating sediment. Nose is rich, cease all malt and maybe some milk chocolate and raisins. Med body, feels a bit watery, and mildly fizzy. Kind of disappointing to taste. Nice flavors: cherries, coffee, raisins, cereal malt. Sadly, there's no body or boldness to this. It really has a watery texture and it isn't very bold at all.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Very dark reddish copper brown, thin white bubbly head fades to a tiny ring with light lacing. Warm toasty bready malts, slight redcurrant fruits nose. Sweet but light toasty malts on the front, very rich yet drinkable, lightest roast, good Vienna character, then sadly lacking in the finish. Slightly metallic hops, a bit more oddly herbal than it should be, tad oxidised. There’s definitely a good beer here, but sadly should be a bit fresher.
