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.

Kita (1502) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 21, 2015
Can, 0.33l, courtesy of CanCrusher. Clear dark brown color with medium soapy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of toasted malts, grainy, grassy, mild fruity and a bit dusty. Taste starts with moderate sweet malt and dandelion syrup, following is bready with mild alcohol note and light bitter finish. Light to medium body, sticky texture and lively carbonation in palate. Pretty decent industrial brew...
