2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canned. A big airy, lightly tanned head upon a clear brownish red colored body. Clean, nutty caramel aroma with sugary notes. Sweet , burned sugary malt flavor. Not sticky, quite crisp actually. But there is almost no bitterness to deal with it, only a touch of acidulous fruits. Well-bodied. Slick mouthfeel. Sweet finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled) Clear, dark amber color with medium, tanned head. Dry and slightly burned-malty aroma with rye bread and cookies. Malty, ashy flavor with some dark-toffeeish caramel. Even some licorice notes when warmer. Quickly fading, smooth finish. Very easily drinkable. Medium-bodied, slightly sugary and carbonated palate. Not that bad for the style, and probably accompanies a christmas dinner just fine. Clearly better than the Finnish vienna-style bulk christmas brews.

Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget in October 2012.
Clear dark amber with a sligtly tan head. Rather sweet with notes of toffee, roasted malt and bread. The finish was dry. Drinkable but boring. No spices in this one.
