2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
