1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml can - shared by Mirjukka and Janne - thanks!
Slightly sickly aroma. Looks good. Some grainy roast in the aroma. Similar in the taste, just some simple roast but spoilt by the sickliness. Watery palate. Fizzy. Sweet toasty finish. Some treacle toffee. Disappoints, would chose this. A touch metallic.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can. Dark brown, average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, dark bread with sweetish aroma, cardboard and light roasted malt. Body is light, dark bread with sweetish flavor, some cardboard. Finish is short with sweetish dark bread, some cardboard and some vegetables. Not good.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Dark brown/amber colour. Thin creamy head, some lace. Light ryebready malt aroma and molasses, even some raisiny notes. Slightly vegetably. Light, sweetish bready malt flavor. Barely noticable bitterness. Slightly worty and harsh finish. A bit sharp carbonation. Light body. Quite pleasant for a NA.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Canned, rated 2011-12-14) Very dark brown with a smallish, quickly fading, big-bubbly head. Rye-bready, sweetish rye pudding nose - like kotikalja without yeast. Neutral-malty flavor, some rye pudding, not many off-flavors. Light body, not quite watery, lowish CO2. Like rye bread mixed with water, but competes equally with most dark bulk lagers - and it’s not too sweet.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
33cl can. Poured brown with a small head. Aroma is bready, sweet malt and cardboard. Flavor is metal, ryebread and cardboard. Quite nasty finish. Not something I would like to try again.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
330 ml can.
Pours a dark copper colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of sweet malts, pulp and some weird bread-like elements. Flavour of sweet malts, sugar, bread and strong cardboard. Light bodied, thin mouthfeel and a sweet, slightly malty finish. Somewhat drinkable, but still a useless low alcohol beer.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Canned (from Prisma, Vaasa). Deep rubyish amber colour with a mediumsized fluffy brown head. Aroma is grains, rye, some mild cardboard, and mild toasted notes. Flavour is ryebread, some grains, rubber and some mild notes of metal.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can 330ml (Prisma, BB 11/2012)
Deep brown color, good cloudy brownish head, lace. Aroma of wort, rye bread and rubber. Light bodied. Caramel, malzbier-like wort, paper and rye bread in the flavor. Quite Kvass-like N/A-beer. As such, not hopeless, just useless.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
330 ml can. Finland.
Dark reddish brown colour with small light grey head.
Aroma doesn’t differ from vaalea-version. Rye bread, malt and ruispuolukkapuuro here again. Some mild sweet malt in flavour too. Watery. Quite useless to be honest.
