Bottle. Mahogany, clear. Nose has bready malts (dark syrup-based bread), a bit of metallic notes. Body is lightish, malty, brown. Some soft roasted tones, but very malty and easy. A bit like a dunkel.. but softer in a way. But feels processed, or mass produced, even with the ’ecological’ labeling. Beerhammaren (1793) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2012
Pours dark clear copper with beige medium head. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel and bread. Flavor mostly the same + rye and some bitternes. Ok beer! hlkanga (204) - - OCT 13, 2012
330 ml bottle. Pours dark brown to ruby red colour with a small tan head. Quite nice aroma of toasty malt, mild suryp and even a hint of chocolate. Taste is toasty and bready with a hint of caramel. A bit stingy carbonation, medium bodied and oily mouthfeel. Hayish and a bit hoppy finish. Quite decent vienna. Somehow this year it tasted better than last year. Lacks some hops though and the finish is bit harsh. tlind2 (1720) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle. Clear brown color, tan head. Fairly sweet roasted malt flavor with a dry, metallic finish. Medium-light body, medium-high carbonation. Not a complete disaster, but slightly off-balance. Beerheart65 (1503) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2012
Aroma has caramel, pine, dark bread. Clear red/brown with pin head. Taste is bit more crisp than aroma and has also berries. Medium body. Not bad, not usual finnish christmas beer but ok.
