rosenbergh (8873) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2011 Draught at Plevna, Tampere, Finland.
Dark brown colour. Bitter hoppy and fruity aroma. Same with the flavour. Rye makes it milder in bitterness but also smoother. Enjoyable.

esox (1198) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2008
Draught @ OTTO fest. A bit cloudy copper to orange beer with creamy, medim-sized head. Hoppy aroma is fres, full of floral and fruity (orange peel, even black currant!) elements with some resin in the finish. Rich malty flavor with some roastdness of caramel malts. Overall quite bitter, especially in the long finish that has also fruits and sweetish caramel. Palate is medium bodied, smooth and sticky bitter in the finish.

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2008
Slightly hazy, reddish amber color with thick, creamy and lacy head. Aroma is very mush aromatic hoppy, sweetish caramely malty with a bit of black currant. Flavor is sweety caramely malty, with balancing and long lasting grassy hops. Black currant can be also found from the flavor. Palate is quite full-bodied, dry and low cabonated.

Draught @ OTTO Festival. Copper colored, beige head. Bitter fruity aroma, apricot and hops. Palate is soft. flavor has well balanced bitterness and hops. English bitter like, but with more hops and ABV. Didn’t taste the rye tho.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2008 Medium offwhite head does not last. Amber body with light carbonation. Floral resiny aroma. Dry-sweet resiny roasty dry cocoa taste with fruity notes and some honey. Carbonates a lot in the mouth. Dry resiny cocoa aftertaste. Quite unusual, but pretty good. (0.25l draft at Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki.)

(From long backlog in my notebook. Tasted from tap in Kaisla on 2007-12-30.) Generally, I liked this beer. The hoppines of the beer was rather strong and balanced. The body was medium, The tase of rye was notable, too.
