3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Pikkulintu
Aroma is sweet with caramel, toffee and some odd grainy tones. Flavour has lots of sweet caramel, toffee and distant herbal notes. Like a tikkunekku in liquid form. Wouldn’t have been able to recognize the spruce shots without knowing. Too sweet and sticky, even this 25cl is too much.
