600ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Very dark reddy brown. Not much aroma. Slightly lactic palate, a bit sour, but quite pleasant. Sweet maltiness. I also now notice the aroma is sour as well as the taste. A tad soapy, but quite refreshing and tangy.

Sødlig karamel, ristet malt og nødder. OK humle. Medium fyldig. God ristet og nødde eftersmag. Væsentlig bedre end mange danske Brown Ales.
