On tap @ Harbourlights, Noordwijk, Netherlands. Colour is brown, with a red glow over it. Flavour is nutty, roasted and malty. Flavour has a bittersweet touch in it and it goes down pretty well. Nice find.

At Kitty’s, Helsinki. Poured dark reddish brown in colour with a small light tan head. Roasted notes in aroma. Light sweet malty notes in flavour. Felt a bit watered down. Odd sweet ’kotikalja’ taste in the end.

This beer varies a lot - sometimes great, sometimes awful. Used to drink in Southampton in Cask form.

Pours amber brown with small head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is hoppy, with roasted notes. Medium bitterness, fruit and chockolate. Palate is soft carbonation, wet texture and medium-full bodied. Decent beer

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at "Bridge", Heathrow Terminal 4. Clear mahogany with a creamy light brown head that stays as a thich film that lasts and leaves excellent lacing. Dried fruits, apricot jam, tobacco and toffee malt notes abundantly present on the nose. Malty and toffee sweet, elegantly balanced against hoppy bitterness and a hint of acidity. Smooth to drink and flatish. Medium bodied and finishes dry. I love this stuff!

Not always my favourite option, but it is a great beer to fall back on when selection is limited. Quite a strong after taste, great to drink with a red meat meal.
