0.5 l bottle from the brewpub in Helsinki... Clear amber, quite red, color, average head, soft sparkling body... Nice bitterness of citrus, grapefruit and sour apple... For a real Bitter too soft, the Pilsener is even more bitter...

Drank from a bottle at home. The beer has a slightly bitter taste. It’s not bad but it’s a bit boring.

Kavu (2192) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2014
0,5l bottle from K-Market Jätkäsaari. Pours clear amber with a high head. Aroma is bitter malts. Flavor is pretty similar. Nice, if a bit ordinary.

Bottle 50cl @ Brygga. Pours slightly hazy orange, small white head. Toffee, fruits in the aroma. Smooth, fruity, toffee flavor.

Copper, semi clear beer with a foamy white head. Fruit and bread on the nose. Watery body. Bland carbonation. Some bitterness which grows in the after taste but does not impress. Bland and boring and frankly not that good. I am not a big fan of this style though.

MikeKeller (839) - Kemi, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Bottled. Coppery colour and a thick bubbly off-white head. Toffee malts on the aroma with some fresh hoppiness. Grainy malts in the flavour, toffee and a crisp hoppiness. A quite good attempt on bitter from Suomenlinna.

mikkopen (828) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2014
500 ml bottle. Clear amber colour, dense off-white head. Malty, grassy-hoppy aroma with notes of caramel and fruits. The flavour is malty, with fruity notes, and a grassy-hoppy, moderately bitter finish. OK.

Migmar (248) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2013
Pale reddish yellow, big foam. Fruity hoppiness, strong and somewhat harsh bitterness. Pretty drinkable anyway.
