UPDATED: DEC 12, 2005 Bronze color, with a quite creamy but not very big head. Aroma is wonderful from toffee, sweet and also a little metallic. Has a quite dry flavor, fruity and nutty, some malt in it as well. Ends with a bitter finish.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tarno makes this? What a shame. Bland amber lager, with uncomplex sweet malt flavours worthy of Pripps and a slippery finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A bit hazy body, golden-orange color, and with a beige head. There’s a strange aroma with caramel and fruits, put I couldn’t pin it. The flavor is more pleasant, with caramel, hops, roasted malt and a little grainy note. Medium, quite sticky mouthfeel, and a grainy and fruity finish. I had some expectations for this one, but they weren’t fullfilled. I found it a bit strange, certainly drinkable, but not too successful. (070705)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark amber/brown with a creamy head. Aroma is of dusty, ashy roasted malts. Some bitter roast & sweet caramel. Medium bodied. Medium to low carbonation. Since this is in the "vienna" category its OK.
But that dusty & ashy edge more of the beers from the brewery have ... not addictive...

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Christmas Beers 2007)
Dark orange to brown, thin head. Honey malty aroma. Dry nutty malty taste. Bottle carbonation’s a little harsh, but nothing a good swirl can’t fix. Very tasty brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very nice hop aroma, and quite malty. Toffee colour, small head. Malty flavour. Also a little sweet in a way that could be characterized as christmassy. But not enough alcohol to really make me happy.
