Draught @ PikkulintuAndySnow (8359) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2017
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.

On tap at HaandBryggeriet Beer Festival, Drammen. Deep orange to red colour, moderate off-white head. Moderate aroma of spruce, hints of dust. Medium sweet flavour, distinct notes of spruce twigs, reminds me of Alba (Williams Brothers / Heather Ales). Interesting beer! VastActiv (8081) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2013
