UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014 No expectations - or very low expectations. However such a nice surprise. Very rich taste. Taste of handbrewed quality beers. Fruity - lot of tastes. Good palate. Like a quality dobbelbock Where low alcohol amount doesn’t matter at all. Best supermarket beer I ever had, definitely. Biological product gets Always 0,5 higher than bon-organic One. esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 5, 2011
Bottled. Dark amber colour, lacy white head diminishes into thin film. Fresh, pleasantly hoppy nose has herbal and grassy notes and slight pepperiness. Light, chocolatey malt aroma with some roasted bread. Dryish and medium bitter taste, finishes a bit sweeter with caramelly and roasted notes and nice bitterness. Light body, slightly watery finish. Nice brew that would be even nicer with some additional malts. 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. liinis (1791) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2014 Re-rating this now it seems a lot better than three years ago. smooth and mildly christmasy. easy, but still enjoyable. mauritsio (995) - FINLAND - NOV 13, 2012
Special Hartwall Bottle. Dark brown with tiny head. Sweat aroma. Sweet, little bitter roasty taste. Long aftertaste from hops.
