2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the Teerenpeli, Tampere, Finland.
Clear amber colour with a small white head.
Cidery apples, rye bread, rye flour, sweetness and malt in the aroma. The aroma is kind of layered. The flavour is floral hops, berries, sweetness, malt and rye. I don’t know... There’s nothing really wrong with this but it’s like most of the Teerenpeli brews... plain boring. Some sweet fruity notes in the aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 330ml. Deep clear copper collor, tiny off-white head. Malty-bready, ryeish aroma. Slightly sweetish toasted sugary too. Light to medium-bodied. Sweetish, toasted sugary, bready flavor. Could be lager by flavor. Clean but uninspiring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Panimoravintola Teerenpeli in Lahti.
Huge light brown-beige head that is semi lasting. clear red-amber color. Big rye malt aroma with a light roasted tuch. The rye also dominate the taste with a smooth malty finnish. A tuch of sweetness and caramell. Small body and an easy summer drink.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Clear, no head to speak of, amber coloured, bready nose with an oily-caramelly touch; sweetish flavour, light bodied; slightly lingering sweetish bready finish with a delicate malty bitterness. Quite a monotonous bready juice…

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber brown, small but persistant head. Bread and caramel. Medium syrapy sweetness, light bitterness. The rye comes through somewhat, interesting if not that strong.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear darkish amber colour, marginal white head, spicy aroma of plum, a bit of floweryness and some caramel. Light carbonation, medium body and aftertaste slightly on the sour side. Could’ve had a bit more character, but well balanced and far from bland.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Brown clear. Musty grainy nose, probably the rye. Light,body, ryeish malts, earthyness. Some dark foresty things. Very clean though, and drinkable. Unoffending.

Bottle 33 CL. Pours amber with not much head. Notes of rye, rye bread, malts. Not bad. But needs more character.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Helsinki Brewery, 4.7% recommended pairing with my stuffed onion. Great reddish amber brown pour. Malty sweet aroma, a hint of spice & smoke. Nice rich caramel, figs then a bit of bitterness, not getting much rye but it’s a well crafted beer. Not cloyingly sweet like most with that kind of malt base(tons of UK beers, Speckled Hen et al)
