2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
50 cl bottle (4,7%) @ home, BBE 09/2013
Aroma is somewhat sweet with lots of grainy malt. Flavour is somewhat sweet and rather malty with grain and hints of nuts. Starchy feeling here. Quite bulky to be a microbrewery beer. And failed to pair with my salad with smoked salmon.
It seems that these rye lagers are still not my cup of tea.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle from K-supermarket (Kamppi, Helsinki - € 3,89) in August 2014. Pours a hazy darkish amber with an off-white head that drops fast and disappears. Nose is... beautiful! It’s herbal and caramelly, with honey and malts and grass there as well, and it’s crisp too. Taste is also malty, grassy, herbal. Mouthfeel is very soft, body is thin and carbonation is near non-existent. Palate is on the sticky side. An easy-drinker but not exactly refreshing; among the smoothest, softest lagers I’ve had. I really did like it (... as the first drink after a long, hot day sightseeing).

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
White fluffy fragile top, 99% clear deep golden body.
Floral summer scents with caramel malts. Tastes caramel malts, butter, grains, sweet resin, malty-fruity-jammy.
A bit dry and normal to palate. Nice finish into bready malts, some bittersweet hops.
A good lager-pilsener, where the rye makes it fruity and easy drinkable.

Pitkään aikaan ei ole näin tavallista lageria tullut. Jos tämä olisi tölkissä niin miksei tätä joisi ennemmin kuin koffia.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear orange beer with quickly dissolving white head. Classic lager looks. Aroma has grainy malts with little grassy hops. Tastes mostly grainy and floury malty with something different than most lagers - probably the rye. Still not the most pleasant lager taste, could use more hop flavor. Finish is quite long but mild with bitterness. Thin mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Kind of a basic pale lager with the added twist from rye and wheat (which I don’t specifically notice).
