MaltOne (354) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2013
(pint can) Pours red amber, with a creamy buff head. Aroma is pleasantly complex - Butter biscuit, slightly sweet, a bit of spice. Taste starts like a Scotch Ale, slightly sweet, malty, then the finish adds a dry, bitter component to the sweeter start, creating some balance to the initial Scotch Ale impression. Mouthful is unctous leaving some sweet and some bitter on the palate - creme brulee with bitter orange. Overall a very interesting brew. The rye and the hops add a new, and pleasant dimension to what would otherwise be a somewhat familiar profile

Jyrsa (723) - - APR 24, 2017
Can from Alko. Hazy medium brown with tan head. Red fruit, juniper, spruce, herbs, sweet malt. Quite sweet yet a bit bitter with red malt, herbs, some alcohol. Full body, sticky palate and light carbonation. Oddly unbalanced in my opinion.

Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light - some caramel and light brad with light fruitiness with light - some herbal hoppyness, light alcohol. Caramel sweetish with notes of bread. Weird and bit barnyard like herbal hoppyness

Vestergaard (2074) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2017
From tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours an almost clear orangy amber with a small white head. Aroma has hops, orange, sweet malts, caramel, spicy rye. Taste is sweetish, but rye gives a hint of mint. rather bitter finish. Spicy. Medium full body and a light to medium carbonation.

Turboninja (705) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2017
[email protected], from Alko web store. Medium aroma with red berries and sweet malts. Deeper orange color with minimal organic white head and hazy liquid. Medium, averagely balanced, slightly bittersweet taste with some red berries, hops and malts. Dry-hopping clearly visible. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with malts and berries. Medium body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, despite slightly unbalanced touch, this one has a clear goal and with nice malty backbone. Still, bit light for the percentage.

Smoky, spicy and herbal both in flavor and aroma. Good and balanced palate. More smoke appears towards the end. Some rye is detectable throughout. Very unusual hop and menthol combination appears with time.
