A clear amber/copper colored beer, with a thick light beige head. The aroma of caramel malt, fruits like citrus and sweets. The taste of caramel toffee, sweet fruits and straw. It’s a little bitter. The aftertaste is dry, sweet with some bitter.

Bottle. Clear orange/brown body, with a small white head. Aroma is candy sugar, a bit fruity. Flavor is caramel, alcohol, and some hops. An ok, cheap beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. My first shot at this brewery, I think -- exciting!
Hazy copper, with a light beige head with rather short retension.
Sweetish, fruity, slightly alcoholic aroma, with a whisper of hops, molasses, and something vaguely nutty.
Alcohol rather prominent in flavor, albeit in a fairly sweet, fruity kind of way. Caramel malts, some bitter hops, and perhaps a hint of dark cherries. Alcohol and hops linger in bitter aftertaste. Somehow, though, it leaves me wishing for more. The fruitiness never quite reaches particularly enjoyable levels, and is, in the end, overshadowed by the alcohol.
Medium body, moderate carbonation, clean palate.
Bit of a disappointment, frankly.

500 ml bottle. Finland.
Dark copper colour with thin head.
Malty aroma with caramel, nuts and alcohol.
Sweet malty and alcohol flavour with lots of nuts. Not very interesting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0,5 l bottle. Slightly murky copper broen color. Nose has alcohol and spices in it. Flavor is quite fruity and somewhat sour, with a notable alcoholic warmness at the end. Not that spectacular though.
