Full malty body. Sweet, but complex and balanced. Fruit, mint, pepper, fine sourish finish. Very decent.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Clear copper color, virtually no head. Somewhat sweet, fruity flavor with notes of hops, sawdust and tea. Medium-full body, low carbonation. Not my favorite.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 50cl. Pours a clear amber/orange colored beer with an orange head. The aroma is caramel with a little fruit. The flavor is caramel, bitterness and alcohol. The palate leaves bitterness. The beer is average.

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.

A bottle from Alko. Pale beige head. Mild nose. Slightly hazy amber coloured. Slightly sweet soft taste. Mild hoppiness. Some syropy, raisins and fruits in the taste.

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.

500 ml bottle. Slightly hazy reddish orange colour, thin off-white head that leaves some lacing. Slightly sour malty aroma. The flavour is sweet, malty and alcoholic. The finish is warm, sticky and slightly bitter. Not bad, but not particularly good either.
