2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Taster at the brewpub, 10 euros. Nice clear orange gold pour, mild herbal aroma. Bitter pine, rough grolsch like mid-mouth, clean finish. Ok, I get a kind of very bery subtle cheese vibe in the aroma/taste... Odd but pleasant. It would probably pair well with cheese.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rather basic and bland for a bitter with a mild hop finish and medium bitterness. Grassy and a bit of a light citrus fruit. But overall, not too much going on here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear amber beer with a medium offwhite head. Malty, rasins and plums aroma. The aroma brings me memories from a finnish easter dessert called memma, it´s a kind of hate-love realtion to me, it´s a very sweetish dessert that I always had when I was a child at easter. Too sweet but anyway loved...
Malty and dark fruits flavour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Suomenlinnan Panimo.
Lightly hazed amber with a small white head that quickly settles. Fruity orange, honey / agave, amber malt nose, clean throughout. Medium-light body, honey syrup malt is succulent, it’s enticingly hoppy with a lot of EKG-like spice, a lot of orange juiciness and a wee bit of pine sap. Quenching body, clean fermentation, all flavors in balance, all flavors expressive, very sessionable.

Enjoyable bitter, could have had more body and a bit more hops, still refreshing and decent beer.
