3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2016 Keg (Stones, Helsinki) (6:4:6:3:11=3.0)
Very spicy aroma, a bit cakey, some mixed peel, clove and cinnamon. Also a slightly salty sweaty funkiness, hinting at crotchiness. Light palate, almost water, pleasant carbonation. Deep brown, brief keggy head. Taste has the sweaty crotch from the aroma, but the spicing is tuned down nicely. Finish has a pleasant roast. No sign of any alcohol, it’s almost a glugger. A bit messy in places, but I enjoyed it all-in-all.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) (6:4:6:4:12=3.2)
Pleasant full brown ale aroma, definitely better as it warms. Taste similar, but with a dusty dirtiness. Bitter hopping moderate, gives it some character. Reminds me of my 45th birthday brew by Martin - cheers! - but this was a tiny bit harsher and rougher.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy brownish color with a nice tan head. Nice lacing as well. Inviting aroma. Some chocolate, mild roasted and bready. Medium (+) body. Moderate sweet and an ok bitterness. Average to soft carbonation. The flavor in this one was really pleasant and balanced. A brown ale I could drink many times! Mild bready, a bit chocolate, herbal hoppy and a bit roasted. Nice!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Det är nog den bästa från Lundabryggeriet hittills jag smakat. Den är lite tunn, men den milda rökigheten drar upp betyget till en helt ok öl!
