Aleksanteri on mahongin värinen brittityylinen brown ale. Tarkasti valitut maltaat antavat sille rotevan rungon ja englantilaiset humalat aateloivat runsaan ja mausteisen maun. Parasta 12-asteisena laadukkaan ruoan kumppanina.

3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2013
First batch bottle, had at Bryggeri Helsinki. Stewed apple and light toast and caramel syrup in the nose, candyish and fruity with maybe a dab of concrete and some sweet vegetables too (old sugar snap peas and celery). Medium light body, low carbonation with low acid, so with the high sweetness it’s very limp, and the finish is very watery. Soggy brown bread finish. Dull flavor, poor balance, not even close to the quality of the beer brewed on site at Bryggeri Helsinki.

TEJA (3348) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2016
Tiny beige lace. Clear amber color. Big caramell aroma that dominates. Malty and light acidic taste with a finnishing low bitterness.

Tumma, kuparinen ja hyvin minimalisesti vaahtoava olut. Tuoksu ruisleipäinen ja aavistuksen mämminen. Maku marjainen, toffeinen ja karamellinen sekä hieman ruisleipäinen. Aavistuksen katkera jälkimaultaan. Aika kevyt suutuntuma. Ihan onnistunut tekele.

Bottled, thanks Tbone/oh6gdx! Clear nut brown, small head. Mostly cardboard up front. Sweetish with clean mouthfeel and light body. Papery with some grass and some caramel. Low bitterness.

bierkoning (13813) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Dark brown color. caramel and brown sugar in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor, caramelly. Just enough grassy hops to counterweight to the sweetness. Low on carbon. Better as expected after the simple aroma.

TBone (18559) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2013
[email protected] Deep amber color, small steady beige head. Diacetyl, caramel in the nose. Light bodied. Dry dark fruits, rubber in the flavor. Harsh finish.
