Draught (shared with Lövis, thanks!). Ambery brown colour with a small off-white to beige head. Aroma is bread, caramel, mild nutty notes along with some "earthy" notes. Flavour is nutty, mildly chocolaty with some ryebready and mild floral and grassy hopping to it. Fresh. TBone (17773) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2013

Deep dark amber color, small steady off-white head. Light toasted, fruity aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Fruity, some caramel. Clean, maybe a bit cleaner than Helsinki’s alt. FatPhil (16631) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 23, 2013

Bland aroma, just a bit of sweetish malts, a touch of roast. Flatish plate. Pleasant almost coffee-like hints in the rich body. Shame about the flatness, this is a tasty brew.
Draught@urho. Brown clear. Nutty dark caramel, with slight green hops. Body medium, soft, Hazelnuts, light roasty tones and some greenish hops. The alt, finely fruity, yeasty character is there also. Overall a good drink. Just a bit too sweet IMO, and more hops on the palate, please. Not to make it a hoppy beer, but just to have an assertive hoppyness.

Clear dark mahogany body, white head. Aroma has fruits and berries, some butter, malty yeast and nuts. Flavour is rough in grainy malts and sweet fruity tones. Interesting to rate. Style quess: bock. Bit tar and smoke in finish.

Tap at St Urho, Helsinki. Colour is brown with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Sweetness, chocolate, fruits and malts. RexTalionis (3775) - FINLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Draught. Pours reddish brown in color with a small bubbly head. Nutty aroma, bit of sweet brown sugary notes in aroma. Quite sweet in taste, some nuttynes and dark bready notes in flavor. Lacks the light roastedness and bittering hops in taste unfortunately. Later on there appears a bit of bitterness which lifts the score a bit. tiong (7433) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Draught @ St. Urho’s Pub, Helsinkimjs (7510) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Pours dark brown with a tiny white head. Aroma of sweet syrup, bready malts and hay. Taste is sweet, malty and syrupy with notes of caramel and bread. Finish is malty, slightly hoppy and syrupy with some sweetness and caramely notes. Okay, quite balanced alt.
(Keg at St. Urho’s Pub, 20130701) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, molasses and mildly grass. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, grass, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A very tasty and clean brew.
