3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark ruby-brown color, good beige head. Caramel, sweetish malty nose. Medium-bodied. Caramel, rye and juniper in the flavor. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Clean and easy but same time strong beer. I liked it and it is perhaps the best beer from Rekola so far.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish-brown hazy beer with a nice blonde head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma has rye with toffee and bitterness, like a British bitter. Tastes pretty rye like and toffee sweet, also bitter, slightly like juniper. Thinner than medium palate with high carbonation. Finish is pretty long and bitter. An original taste for sure, but not my thing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Syystober, Helsinki. Pours murky brown with a mediocre white head. Aroma of toasty maltiness, berries and also some metallic notes. Taste is malty and full of juniper berries; also some toasty maltiness. Overall, this is dryish, especially in the finish where also some sourness appears. Medium body, slightly sticky palate. Nice beer but could have been a bit fuller and maltier.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Villi Wäinö
Aroma is rather light with just faint traces of kotikalja and roasted malt. Flaovour is sweet and rather malty with some ripe fruits and brown sugar. Feels actually quite worty with all the sugar and malt. The juniper really just thwhispers at the end, just like the beer name says, and doesn’t even get stronger towards the end of the glass. Feels like a dark Belgian ale. And my backspace key is broken.
