3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l. at Pikkulintu) The beer poured reddish brown and hazy. Its head was medium sized, white and long lasting. Aroma was malty and sweet. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, swetness, caramell, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. Both the aroma and the taste were quite musty. That brought the score down.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. A red beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma is lovely hoppy - which among others lends it notes of elderflowers, but it also has notes of malt, caramel, yeast, and a touch of dust. The flavor is very sweet with notes of malt, hops, elderflowers, pollen, and hay, leading to a dry and bitter finish.
