2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Pours clear amber, little head. Very little of any kind of aroma. Same goes for taste. Low carbonation. At first quite nice, but in the end just dull.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canned. Nikolai vuosiolut 2012 was actually a nice exception in the line of Sinebrychoff beers. It’s enjoyable with smooth, soft refreshing taste that had just about right amount of hops for the body making it well balanced brew.

Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s deep gold with no head. The nose is grains, honey, some light orchard fruits. The taste is corn, some sweet cereal. The body’s clean and light. Boring, not particularly tasty.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Looks like unfiltered beer, and smells like lager. Taste is lagery like as well. There is metallic aroma, without any interesting nuances. The usual mild hops, giving grass, and bit of malts are present. Nearly equivalent to any super market beer.
