Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a medium, fizzy white head, medium-short retention with good lacing. Aroma is bread and biscuit malt, light dates and soft caramel notes with woody hops. Flavor is malt dominant, medium-light hops and bitterness, soft dark fruit notes and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Tap @ Storyville, Helsinki. Pours a fairly amber with a small, off-white head. Aroma is quite fruity, some bready caramel. Taste is surprisingly fruity. Caramelly bitter-flavors are there. A bit of butter on the aroma, but quite fruity. Decent palate.

Bottled. Bought at Presporska Pivoteka in Bratislava/Slovakia. This bottled bitter is excellent! Bitter, hoppy a bit, refreshing. Due to 4% abv this is a great summer beer! The finish is pleasantly bitter. The arome of floral freshness unfolds when the glass is half full. I think this bottled bitter is excellent!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500mL bottle. Poured medium orange with a quick-forming, tall beige head. The aroma picked up honey, toasted grains, and slight vegetal character with accents of grassy hops.. I did not enjoy it. The flavor found buttery bread and honeyed malts at the core with light sour fruit skins plus grassy bitterness around.. finished tangy with high carbonation and lots of residual sugars. Lighter-bodied but very full on the carbonation.. not very well balanced.. just not for me.
