3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A beautiful, reddish brown beer with a long-lasting, big and beige head. Aroma of caramell, fruits, lemony and slightly wooden hoppyness, aroma is quite nice and aromatic. Taste is nutty and slightly toffeeish, medium strong hoppyness, that continues to long and wooden, dry aftertaste. Medium bodied, nicely smooth to drink. I got positive feeling from this beer, tastefull and enough of aromatic nuancees despite of wooden characters.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (Old Bank, Turku)
Rich aroma, a touch sweet, a little roasted, some coffee even. Clear bold red, brief keggy head. Full palate, a little sweet, nice carbonation. Great full grainy husky body, nice roast, great earthy bitterness. Finish packed withthose hops, very dry, husky, barky, and earthy. Nothing like a US red as I imagine it. Very solid brew, packed full of flavour. So dry.
