It tastes a bit grassy and is dedicated to «those who really appreciate the taste of beer», brewed in honour of 15 years of the brewery. Too bitter to drink after You take sauna. Good in small amounts.

Bottled. Pale golden, firm head. Soapy butterscotch aroma. Medium bodied. Some malt sweetness dried out by a fair amount of soapy, flowery resiny hops. Rounded mouthfeel, notes of butter. A beer with character.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottled, BBE 23.6.2007) Clear, deep golden with a large, foamy head. Dull, slightly metallic and cardboardy aroma with some past-its-prime grassy hoppiness and butter. Buttery-malty, lightly metallic flavor with honey and actually some hop bitterness present all the way. Some cardboard, probably since it’s past its BBE. Almost medium-bodied, neutral, pretty dull palate with foamy but not that high carbonation. A surprisingly malty brew with at least some flavors - even if they’re not that pleasant. Seriously, this is not that bad at all.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale gold, thin head. Very simple lager aroma (note - I’d been eating spicy food earlier, might not be at top sensitivity). Lively carbonation, somewhat watery in the mouth. Taste is a simply creamy maltiness. Some bitterness too but not a huge finish to it. Fairly pleasant, but not anything special
