2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
50 cl can @ home, BBE 23.07.2014
Yeasty and messy aroma with strawberries and toffee. Flavour is also messy with yeasty notes, toffee candy, strawberries. Some herbal and grassy tones at the end of the glass. Flat palate, almost no CO2 at all. But at least the alcohol does not come through.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A slightly brown, dark yellow beer with a blond, almost medium head that is almost totally disappered. The nose is rich of malts, strong riped fruits, nice. Taste is rich, lots of dried fruits, some raisins, hops dried the taste together with hint of alcohol. Fruitness supports nicely the stong sweetness. Almost full bodied, mild carbonation, smooth. A positive surprise, rich, smooth and dryed fruity beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can 500ml Alko
Clear amber color, vanishing head. Sweet fruity, a bit woody alcohol in the nose. Medium-bodied. Quite flat mouthfeel. Very sweet and alcoholic. Apples, wood ... Not very pleasant overall. Even for being organic all malt brew.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Light amber, hazy, no head. Moderate to full malty - grainy and sweetish aroma, caramel and light berry fruitiness, faint alcohol. Medium to full, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish flavor, caramel and light berry fruitiness, faint alcohol. Finish is short to average, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish, some caramel, faint hoppyness and light alcohol. Reminds me of those Estonian/East-European "alco-lagers".

500 ml can. 34313. BB 23/06/14. (Alko) Tampere, Finland.
Cloudy brown colour with almost no head.
The aroma is very unpleasant... There’s malt, berries and lots of sweetness. The flavour is super sweet... alcohol... and some maltiness. Actually quite a lot malt. Boozy mess. Very unpleasant. And quite flat too.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can 0.5l from local market. Colour is clear dark orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Sweetness, caramel, hints of honey, grain and malts. Quite malty, too sweet for me but alcohol is well hidden. Not good but much better than this style cheap strong lagers usually are.
