330 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.mike_77 (7088) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2011
Pours a dark reddish brown colour with a small thick head. Aroma of sweet fruits, raisins and refreshing citrus. Flavour of sweet malts, fruits, raisins and some metallic notes. Medium bodied, rough foamy and thin mouthfeel and a dry finish of sweet fruits and malts. Nothing special.
Medium brown colour, very silky head. Very low carbonation. Some oakiness comes through in the aroma. The head is quite sour on the lips. The mild malty flavour is quickly washed away by a quite citric, mildly acidic flavour. Later, a warming aftertaste. Brandman (2962) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2011
Brown body, light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, marmalade and some liqour like alcohol. Flavour is basicly berry juice. Watery. rosenbergh (11799) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 23, 2011
330 ml bottle. From bierzwerg.de.Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2011
Hazy dark brown colour with small off-white head.
Toffee, chocolate and marmalade fruitiness in aroma.
Berries and some sourness in flavour. Thin. Disappointing.
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with dark bread, dried fruit, raisins and caramel. Slightly spicy with a light acidity. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark bread, ryvita, caramel, dried fruit, raisins, burnt sugar and a slightly spicy finish with a mild bitterness. More than medium body, with some sweetness. Clean, but a bit generic. Enjoyable.

(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Moderately sweet and lemony fruity-sour aroma with light notes of cara-malt and yeasty spice. Sweet flavour with a tinge of sourness, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malty taste with lemon-fruity and mildly spicy notes; sweet and slightly sour-fruity finish with a tinge of caramel. Okay but not overly impressive. 21.III.11 GRM (4177) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2011

330ml bottle from the Bitter End, Bromley. Rubbish really. It’s drinkable, but tastes like a home brewing experiment gone wrong. It’s really thin for a 6.5%, and the flavours are all over the place. There’s a touch of sharpness, touch of muddy spice, bit of sweetness. There’s nothing really likeable about it, though it’s not offensive to drink. I wonder if anyone buys a second bottle of this stuff. Nose of plastic. Do these guys actually know what they’re doing? madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2011

Sharp and sour brown beer. Has a dry bitter finish. Not complex but quite drinkable.
Bottle shared with JerC (old rate). Dark copper colour on pouring. Wine like nose. Sweet, roasted hazelnut in flavour. Finish is pleasing and lasting. Decent.
