2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle, clear dark copper colour, small frothy off-white mostly dissipating head, little bit of lacing. Moderately malty roasty aroma with some hints of coffee and chocolate, light herbal hops. Taste is initially sweet and slightly acidic, turning into a moderately bitter and slightly salty finish with a slightly metallic feel. Light body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Somewhat interesting for a Finnish supermarket lager though the body is too thin and the otherwise decent finish had a weird off-taste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reddish brown clear beer with a frothy beige head disappearing fast. Aroma has chocolate and sweet malts . Taste is bready malty, little roasted and chocolaty sweet. Comes out also a bit watery. There’s some metal on both aroma and flavor. Thin palate with moderate carbonation. A moderate amount of bitterness on a short finish. A nice low ABV dunkel, probably a good dinner beer.
