2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Medium gold, white head.
Rather neutral aroma, some malt, bready notes, citrus, hops?
Off-dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2.
Malty, slightly buttery taste, bread, citrus, hops, finish with quite cardboardy notes.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at The Rover, Gøteborg. Pours clear golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma is bready malty. Taste is light bitter, surprisingly thin mouthfeel, big disappointment.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned, 0.33 l. Pours clear dark yellow colour with frothy, but quickly vanishing white head. Malty aroma with hints of mild creamy cheese and vanilla. Fresh fruity flavour, light bitter finish. Medium bodied with oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Finish is sweet and mildly bitter. Refreshing and good enough to drink another one.

Vanha Satama, Kuopio. Pretty much like the III version. Maybe more flavor on the malty side than III and has some bready notes.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
330ml bottle from Alko i Hetta. Deep yellow colour, with filmy layer. Fruity and sweet nose, but uninteresting and sad in the mouth. It’s dry and bland, and made us feel sad and withdrawn while sharing it at the XI Beer Session 18. Nov. 2010.

Canned, thanks oh6gdx! Clear pale goldenm brief head. Fruity nose where vegetable soup is barely hiddern behind a thin curtain of vanilla. Light bodied with creamy, rounded mouthfeel. Very slight floral notes, more of that boiled vegetables. No bitterness.

Probably the best beer brewed by Olvi. The taste is richer than in Sandels III.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
33cl bottle from Alko. Poured pale golden with a thin white head. Malty aroma. Flavor is bready malt and weak hops. Not very pleasant finish, heavy and musty/stale. Drinkable, but not very exciting.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml bottle. Rated @ 30.6.2010.
Pours a clear golden colour with a medium-sized white head. Grainy on the nose with a hint of hoppiness. Flavour of malts, syrup and cardboard. Light bodied with a thin mouthfeel. A bit tastier than the III version.
