Sourish tinge to an othewise sweet aroma, Deep copper, tight beige head. Sweetish malty taste, bready, some heathery perfume. Full smooth palate, pleasant carbonation. Some sourness taints the taste too. Shame, dodgy taps? Finish sweet bready malts, and surprisingly brief.
Tap (One Pint Pub, Helsinki). Hazy amber color. Small size, beige head, stays. Heather, dirty, cereal, grainy, vegetables and yeasty in aroma. Heather, grainy, cereals, roast, sweet, yeasty in taste. Dry mouthfeel. Heather is everywhere in aftertaste. Dirty feel. In some strange ways I like it. Tezminator (314) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2017
Aroma: malty and peaty. Taste similar with something heather-like (thanks previous reviewer), toffee and coffee notes. Nice and different. ration (2290) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2017

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 On tap at WilliamK Mannerheimintie, Helsinki. Pours dark brown with a medium-sized head. The aroma features toasty, bready and bisquity maltiness; profoundly malty, no strange spices in the aroma. Taste is light sweet, very lightly toasty with malts providing the bulk of the flavours: bread, nuts, bisquit. Only light spiciness. The palate is medium-bodied, average in carbonation. Malty, drinkable ale. Labeled as spicy but actually leans on fairly simple elements - and that works. Sarpa (1678) - FINLAND - SEP 19, 2017
Tap @ Nordic. Pours clear dark amber, beige head. Malty, herbs, caramel, dark bread aroma. Sweet, malty, herbs, some juniper in the flavor.
