, Tampere, Finland. Soft, slightly bitter nuances of caramel, sweet malts, some earthy, even parfymic notes. Averagely balanced. Medium/narrow taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with sweet earthy malts. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, earthy and drinkable thought bit artificial.

Tap (Bryggeri, Helsinki) (5+:4:5+:4:11=2.9++)mjs (8241) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2017
Sickly jammy aroma, some mushroom later. Full palate, pleasant carbonation. Clear copper, beige tight head. Malty body, a touch dull and even a little dirty, mushroom reappears later. Twiggy bitterness in the finish, some berry jammy sweetness too. Not actually bad, but a bit disturbing.
(Keg at Stones, 20171220) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had toffee, caramel and earth. Palate was medium bodied with rather high carbonation. Flavours were earth, malts, caramel, toffee and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, earthy and bitter. Nice clean brew with earhy finish. Bit too fizzy.
