3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear rusty orange with a medium-sized white head and decent retention. Toffee and toasted bread / crusty malt aroma and flavor with very enjoyable English hop expression (juicy orange, light lemon oil). Somewhat musty / dusty / basement-y, which matches the clear malt expression well. Rich toffee and breads with striking cleanliness; light sweetness and well-match bitterness plus bitterness, seems very much like Fuggles in this beer, whereas the Coyet and IPA had a hop character more like Goldings. As with the rest of this brewery’s line, very quenching and satisfying malt, firm and rigid.

lusikka (4987) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2013
3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a dark copper colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of nutty maltiness, grass and hay. Flavour of strong nutty malts, grains, grassy hops, palm, raisins and hay. Medium bodied, harsh mouthfeel and a dry, malty, bitter finish. Harsh, malty and quite bitter finish. I don’t like the hop profile nor the malts used here, but still it’s a decent beer.
