Le brun cuivré éclatant de sa robe est le préambule d’un univers de douceur et de rondeur. Le nez malté, légèrement fruité, concorde parfaitement avec un goût orienté vers des saveurs « caramel ». Soutenue à tous niveaux, elle reste très équilibrée. Une très légère note de torréfaction nous surprend toutefois en fin de bouche. Première bière produite par la brasserie, sa rondeur rappelle le plaisir et nous invite à passer un moment simple de dégustation.

laiti (8071) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home
Lots of foam when pouring. Pleasant aroma with resin, sweet fruity tones and hayish malt. Foamy palate. Flavour has grapefruity hops, biscuity malt, resin and mild mineral tones. The first sips were nice but then this starts to feel too hayish.
