Reddish amber - at least it looks nice. Big, bad phenols disrupt any sense of maltiness this beer was trying to develop.

Bottled. Amber coloured. Light hazy. Small light beige head. Very high carbonated. Fruity and sweet aroma. Light notes of dark chocolate. A bit bland. Flavour is a bit better. Chocolate, fruits, light citrus and spice. Medium bodied. Ends on a fruity and citric note.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
AMber with a nice offwhite head. Malty, milky aroma with some nuts. Flavor is malty and nutty as well, some fruity notes, a bit too thin to be really good, but its still a nice beer.
Earlier Rating: 11/4/2003 Total Score: 3.5
Nice amber color, not much head. Aroma is dark chocolate, some cocoa and brown sugar. Has a sweet flravor that turns into some bitterness. Has a nice palate and is a very good beer.

Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Amber color. Bready spicy aroma. Spicy flavor with rye bread, cardemom and anis. Sweet but luckily with a subtle spicing.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Clear copper colour with small white head.
Caramel, chocolate, roasted malt and hay in aroma.
Flavour is not so roasted but still with chocolate and lots of malt. Easy to drink but not necessarily that good.

I don't like the aroma (ceralic?), and the head goes of to quickly. But the taste and finish is strong and full of hops. Long lasting dry final.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Amber colour with creamy, disappearing head. Malty, roasted nose with dark rye bread, toffee, caramel and a light whif of smoke. Malty taste with the same aromas, maybe some chocolate and dried fruit in there as well. Mildly hoppy and chocolatey finish. Nice and very drinkable.
