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 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from grocery store in Kotka, clear amber colour, small white head aroma of hay, nuts and rye with notes of fruit and grass. Taste is slightly on the malty side but fairly balanced, bitter finish, light body, medium carbonation. Quite refreshing and more interesting than lagers generally.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2013 Bottle from the grocery store split with my brother. Pours amber, slight off white head. Sweet light malt aroma. Taste is light but helped by the slight rye bite. A nice summer beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Prisma, Kemi. Slightly hazy copper coloured beer with head first bubbly then dissapearing to leave only a ring around the glass. Wheat can be spotted straight from the aroma which has sweet malts and grassy hops too. In flavour comes the rye malts first. Tastes quite sweet actually and a bit metallic too. Good body for the ABV and quite a lot carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Yellow golden, a hint of haze. Grainy malty, greeny hops. Some yeast. Body is light, malty.. musty. Leafy hops, some unripe citrus. A bit unclean, homebrewish. Not too bad; a light green-hoppy lager.
