MikeKeller (801) - Kemi, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2014 Draught @ Plevna, 23.9. 2011.
Hazy reddish brown beer with off-white head. Weak aroma of rye malts and hops. Taste is sweetish malts and moderate bittery hoppiness. This no hop bomb. Well balanced, easy to drink. 6-3-6-3-14 = 3.3
Draught @ Olutravintola Kukko. 5.1.2013. 7-3-7-4-14 = 3.5

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013
Draught @ the brewpub. Rated on 02.05.2009
Aroma has some slightly aged fruits and bready malt. Flavour has exotic fruits and grape with some bready malt. This used to be much more hoppy, refreshing and radical. I wonder what has happened?
8+3+7+3+13 = 3.4

Cask @ Pikkulintu
Pours a big-bubbled head(!). Aroma is odd with caramel and some fruits. Flavour has resiny notes, strawberries, some vanilla tones and hints of toffee. Also some woody and hay tones. Harsh bitterness with herbs in the finish after some sips. Feels messy and does even get some vegetable and herbal tones at the middle of the glass. Perhaps not at its prime, but not too far from it.
7+2+7+3+14 = 3.3

SirLimpsalot (2058) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2011
Diskret doft, men trevlig smak. Balanserad humle, lite jordig med hint av bröd och en ok fruktighet.

Bottle at Pikkulintu in Helsinki, July 2011. Clear amber with a small head. Aroma and taste of fruit, rye bread, caramel, and malt. Not that hoppy and fruity. Rather sweet. Still a good beer.

tkrjukoff (4020) - SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2011
Tap @ Plevnan, Tampere. Pours clear deep ruby amber with a small bubbly tanned head leaving some lace. Aroma is fruity, rye, buttery and hoppy. Mouthfeel is very good, lean, sweet, malty. Flavor is sweet, fruity, perry, citric, tart bitter, malty, spicy and pungeant. Finishes sweetish, malty and very longlived pungeant bitter. Very good.

mile (2854) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2011
Draught at Kaisla, Helsinki. Amber, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and fruitiness, some rye - bread, citrus and some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, citrus and grapefruit hoppyness, some caramel and fruitiness, some rye - bread. Finish is average, malty and and lightly sweetish with some caramel, grapefruit hoppyness. OK sweetish rye-IPA, not too much caramel. Aroma is quite weak considering hoppyness in flavor -aroma and flavor are not in balance.
