3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (Mallaskukko, Turku)
Mid-yellow, with a white head that stays for ever. Yeast floaty bits are off-putting. Aroma is a bit lagery, some light maltiness and candifloss sweetness. Smooth and sticky mouthfeel,slightly creamy. Taste is sweet and maybe honey. Later it becomes maltier, in particular a more richly roasted malt than the colour would hint at.

Clear reddish cobber of color with a medium off-white head. An aroma of spice, sweets, toffee and citrus. An okay flavor with some sweets, notes of spice and no alcohol.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thin creamy head with good viscosity. Orange to brown in colour and quite murky. Tough to get much out of the nose - faint sweet notes of malt and wheat at best. Palate is a little muted; some sweet candy malt notes are the most obvious flavour trait but mild strength at best. Finish is driven by tangy sweet notes. Serviceable beer that doesn’t really do enough to capture the imagination.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the brewery (or should I say "farm"), a light cloudy amber, with a tart and spicy aroma. Spritzy mouthfeel, some sweetness and spice to the flavour on the hoppy palate.
