2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a beautiful red. This beer isn’t actually from Finland but from the self governing Aaland islands (why the Faroese are a separate country in here and Aaland not, I don’t understand). The beer looks very good, but I thought it was too watery, too sweet and with sub standard hop taste. A bit metallic actually.
