begbie100 (181) - Oulu, - DEC 25, 2008
330ML bottle. White head, diminishes fast. Dark brown color. Aroma reminds me of traditional finnish home-brew beer: sweet malts with plums, toffee and little bit citrus. Palate is light with mediocre carb. Flavor is thinner than would expect from aroma. Watery, some roasted malts, raisins, some sourness at the end.

Bottle from Alko. Dark brown / red color, beige head. Bitter taste with citrus, toffee, nuts cardboard and some malts. Bitter finish with citrus, a bit of caramel malts and cardboard. Same mild bulk lager as always, just a different label and color.

Zarkam (457) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2013
330ml bottle, very deep amber colour, small off-white frothy mostly lasting head. Spicy moderately malty aroma of bread and caramel with light herbal and floral hops. Taste is initially sweetish and slightly acidic, turning into a slightly bitter finish with a slightly alcoholic feel. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Not particularly interesting for a Winter beer but could be ok with food, a bit better body than the supermarket version.

Red tinged brown, medium bubbly tan head. Aroma is metal, hints at berries, sweetness, caramel, some watery malt, spice. Taste is medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter, finish is bitter with some weird and unpleasant spicy note. Odd texture, begins watery and ends oily-sticky. Thin to medium body, medium carbonation.

martjoobolut (867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2013
BB2014, 330 ml can. Appearance: dark brown with white head. The head dissapears after some moments. Faint aroma: no spices, just regular metallic lager and some sweetness with hints of sourness. Taste: metallic taste, behind it: caramel, some nice sourness and sweetness. Finish is surprisingly bitter and has even some spiciness. Medium carbonation. Overall: rather weird one, but not really good.
