2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle, Sambrooks Wandle, 4.2% abv) Clear, deep golden colour with a short off-white foamy layer. Slightly biscuity cara-malty aroma with delicately woody and subtle citric hoppy notes. Slightly sweet flavour, light bodied with a tame carbonation. Slim cara-malt character with mildly fruity and woody hops; slim and slightly sweet malty finish with shy hoppy notes and a touch of caramel. Easy-going brew, nothing special. 16.IV.14

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from S-market Kemi. Hazy amber beer with completely disappearing head. Sweetish malty aroma has some ryeish notes with fruits and hay. Flavor is light maltiness, fruits and hay. Some might say a boring beer. Certainly not very exciting but not bad.
