lusikka (6184) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2013
Draught @ Naamat, Tampere.
Pours a cloudy dark brown and creamy head. Aroma of grass, gooseberries and some sour notes. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, gooseberries, grassy hops and sour berries. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a harsh, bitter, sour finish. The sour notes here are rather off-putting.

Hermod (3128) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 26, 2013

TET (1604) - FINLAND - MAR 8, 2013
A beautiful, reddish beer with a weak and blond head. Aroma of nuts, bread, wood, yeast, some citrusfruits and hint of roastiness. Surprisingly, quite fresh, bread and slightly roasted taste, fruits and drying wood. Medium bodied, smooth and slippery to drink. The personal and nicely complex beer.

Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel with and light fruitiness with light hoppyness.

Theydon_Bois (8100) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2013
Cask at the William Webb Ellis (JDW), Twickenham - 02/03/13. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head that retains well. Nose is dark malts, fruits, light hops. Taste comprises much the same, apple, light sugar. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, bitter finish. Average - have had in the past and now having rated it confirms not one to revisit unless its the only beer on!

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2013
Medium beige head. Clear amber body with carbonation. Roasty toffee aroma with nutty caramelly fruity notes. Dry-sweet nutty earthy caramelly taste with roasty dried fruit notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish caramelized sugar and toffee aftertaste with earthy resiny wooden dried fruit and spice notes. The finish lingers for a long time, with traces of rye crisp bread. Complex, interesting, highly drinkable. A very good beer. (0.5l bottle, Meny Oslo City.)

Dark amber. Fruity, slightly candy apple like ale. Soft, medium hopped brit ale. Rather Good for the style, but nothing special.
