Keg (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) - as "Midvinterbryg"
4 caramel and lager,
3 lager with caramel added
5 caramelly lager, touch of wool later
3 some crispness as a lager, but some smoothness brought on by the caramel
9 so, did they put caramalt in this? dont’t know what’s wrong with this, if anything, but it’s just dull. Touch of washing machine detergent. Not a complete disaster, but I expect more from them.

TET (2639) - Kaarina, FINLAND - APR 24, 2010
Dark brown beer with big and blond head. Flavour is roasted, strongly malty and some rye bread. Flavour is quite similar than aroma, lot of malts, some sweetness and roastiness. Almost medium bodied with quite high carbonation. Typical, dark lager and there are not suprises in this beer.
