Can from Tbone, thanks! Dark brown color. Hints of roast and caramel in the nuttty aroma. Malty sweet, nutty caramelly flavor with hints of licorice. Muesli. Too sweet, but drinkable. kerenmk (5358) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 28, 2013

Can shared at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks oh6gdx for this can. Clear nice deep reddish amber. Aroma is a bit oxidized with caramel, rye, toasted grains, chocolate and some spicy notes. Oxidized flavor with cardboard, caramel, malt, toastiness and some fruitiness. Light to medium-bodied. Seems too old. Beerhammaren (1836) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Pours dark brown with medium tan head. Aroma is dark malts, some chocolate and coffee. Flavor is mostly same, long lasting aftertaste. Roasted malts, sweetish. Nice. Kavu (5249) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2012
0,5 l can from Master’s Delicacy. Pours dark red with a medium tan head. Aroma is plenty of malts, as is the flavor. Slightly roasted. Rye and oats give it character. Not bad. Brandman (2964) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2012
Dark brown body, small offwhite head. Aroma has sweet rye bread, malts and nuts. Flavour is sweet and bit sharp because of the rye. Bready. Little bit hops needed to balance this one. If hoppy, could bed decent brown ale though this is lager. kalervo (1044) - FINLAND - NOV 10, 2012
Quite nice, more "European" brew! Could have more body, still clearly better than most finnish lagers.
