Psytron (1155) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2012
Smell of wheat, and citrus. Muddy. Medium sweet, with very slight bitterness. Aftertaste of rye.

Erasmus_ro (1188) - Alabama, USA - FEB 17, 2012
Bottle. Cracks open with a hiss so seems to be fine. Supposedly there have been some problems with the bottles. Pours a hazy dark amber with a large, beige head. Aroma is fruity, apricot and lots of banana. Some caramel can be found as well. Taste begins banana, but turns caramel and yeast with some apricot and spiciness. Dries to some grapefruit at the finish. Palate is somewhat carbonated, pretty hefty body. Feels like a mixture of an ESB and a Belgian ale. Surprisingly good and goes well with food in general, but the banana is a bit overwhelming.

ration (1900) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Pours clody copper with a nice head. Aroma hops, slight berries. Almost like a mediocre belgian ale. Not Bad.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle. Hazy brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is yeast, malt and some berries. Flavour is sweet, spicy yeast, malt, berries and some hops. Light to medium bodied, slightly bitter finish.

mikkopen (788) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2012
330 ml bottle. Hazy dark amber colour, medium-sized off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus and other fruits, and hops. The flavour is malty, with fruity notes and a lingering, grassy-hoppy finish. Nice.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2012
Bottled (from Alko, Vaasa). Amber colour, small off-white foamy head. Quite lively when opened, but stayed in the bottle. Would be surprised if none of the bottles are gushers. Aroma is berries, some sweet fruity and floral hops with mild sweet resiny and wooden notes. Flavour is wooden, mildly resiny as well as quite floral and grassy bitter. Some sweet caramel malty notes as well. Gives a slight burnt wooden note when enjoying Brie cheese with it.

laiti (4949) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 08/2012
Aroma is a bit weird with gooseberries, some strawberries and yeast. Also some sweetish toffee. Flavour is sweetish with strawberries, some toffee, bun dough and hints of metal. Some sourish berries start to come through towards the end of the glass. Not your typical ESB, but kind of nice and interesting.

TET (1440) - FINLAND - FEB 10, 2012
A brown beer with a medium and blond head. Aroma is yeasty, overcooked fruits, spicys, herbs and some vegetables; complex slightly dubbel -like aroma. Taste is slightly roasted, biting sourness, dry herbs and hint of vegetables. Medium bodied, lots of carbonation and slightly stringent to drink. I’m not convinced, unbalanced, some fault flavours. Overcooked fruits aroma following with biting and herbal dry taste.

rosenbergh (6105) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 9, 2012
330 ml bottle. Finland.
Dark hazy brown colour with big fluffy light brown head. Lots of yeast, malt and fruity hops. Aroma is surprisingly nice even though it’s a bit like unfinished homebrewed hop bomb. Flavour is much more on the maltier side. Some balancing hoppiness. Thick. Strange but drinkable Ale. Not much in common with ESB.

Hermod (2811) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 9, 2012
33cl bottle from Alko. Poured deep amber, unclear with a white head, nice lacing. Aroma is slightly sour, yeasty and malty with some fruityness. Flavor is yeast, malt, hops and raisins, somewhat sour. Caramel and hops in finish. Quite interesting, despite the sourness, but does not taste like any ESB I have tried before. Light to medium body.
