3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Light amber color. Hardly any head. Cherry sweets and butter in the aroma. Low on carbon. Cherry sweets in the slightly sour flavor. Probably infected, maybe intentionally, but I like the result. The beer almost tastes like a young foxy lambic.

First of the Tuorlan beers I tried and it was quite positive experience. Nothing special though. Quite soft and slightly sour. watery. later I find out that all the three tuorlan beers seem to be the same.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 0.33 l from brewery. Golden, quickly fading white head. Nose is pretty strongly buttery, spicy hoppy and malty. Flavor is pils like bitter hoppiness, some butterness with nicely flavored malts. I would say this is a bohemian pils in all it’s butterness and bitterness. Messy and a bit unbalanced compared to Urquell and likes, but this is pretty attractive. Feels like a true handicraft beer.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught @ Puutorin Vessa, Turku. Deep golden, foamy pale head. Grainy malty nose, little citric seedy hops. Malty and sourish flavor, quite spritzy. Seedy, a bit citric bitterness. Somehow it’s got slight Urquell-vibe. Medium bodied, nice round palate. Nose is dull and overall a bit unclean, but at least it manages to be refreshing.
