0.5 l bottle from Alko. Dark reddish amber color. Sweetish, caramelly and toffeish aroma with lemony and grassy hops. The flavor is caramelly, biscuity, fruity and hoppy with lemony hops and bitter finish. Rounded palate. Tasty beer although a bit too caramelly for my taste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2009 (Bottled) Clear, dark ruby brown with a medium, tanned head. Nutty-woody-aromatic citrusy-hoppy aroma with a hint of toffee. Quite strongly aromatic-hoppy flavor with some dull ashiness in the middle, and a smooth, flowery-aromatic finish. Medium-bodied, slightly foamy-carbonated palate. A pleasantly hoppy and balanced easter brew, but the ashiness reduces drinkability.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Red, coppery body with a medium creamy white head. A beautiful sight. Aroma is peachy hop tones with a pleasant malt balance. Hints of red berries and wild strawberries in particular. Taste is a smooth blend of grassy hops, malts and fruity hints of red berries and honey melon. Not terribly exciting but a very nicely composed beer that I wouldn’t mind having for Easter. Or summer, like now. :-)
