Beerheart65 (1407) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 16, 2016
Deep clear amber, two finger frothy pale brown head. Sweetish aroma has slightly malt and mildly fruity hops, some spices in the mix also (pepperish), there is bit herbal notes and bit honey which are the best part for me. Medium body, average carbonation, mildly fizzy, grainy, grass also, long and woody finish has also nuts but is bit harsh, earthy feel. Average bitter, nothing special. To me neither flavors nor aromas are inviting or savory but this has kinda forest-feel which I do like.

Moebbels (715) - FINLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Pours a clear amber body with a tan head that leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Nose is malty with caramel and rye notes accompanied by a hint of herbs and spices. Taste is malty and sweet with a dry and lasting finish. Carbonation is soft and the body is rich and filling. A decent beer for cooler days but very heavy and malty.
