On tap. Pours dark amber with small white head; aroma is hoppy and orange fruity with slight hints of rye; flavor is quite hoppy, a bit orange fruity at first, but the rye quickly becomes dominant and the finish, along with the bitterness, includes hints of rye bready sourness; body is medium with moderate carbonation.

Dark brown colour. Bitter hoppy and fruity aroma. Same with the flavour. Rye makes it milder in bitterness but also smoother. Enjoyable.
Draught @ OTTO fest. A bit cloudy copper to orange beer with creamy, medim-sized head. Hoppy aroma is fres, full of floral and fruity (orange peel, even black currant!) elements with some resin in the finish. Rich malty flavor with some roastdness of caramel malts. Overall quite bitter, especially in the long finish that has also fruits and sweetish caramel. Palate is medium bodied, smooth and sticky bitter in the finish. janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2008
Slightly hazy, reddish amber color with thick, creamy and lacy head. Aroma is very mush aromatic hoppy, sweetish caramely malty with a bit of black currant. Flavor is sweety caramely malty, with balancing and long lasting grassy hops. Black currant can be also found from the flavor. Palate is quite full-bodied, dry and low cabonated. begbie100 (181) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2008
Draught @ OTTO Festival. Copper colored, beige head. Bitter fruity aroma, apricot and hops. Palate is soft. flavor has well balanced bitterness and hops. English bitter like, but with more hops and ABV. Didn’t taste the rye tho. larsga (7540) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2008 Medium offwhite head does not last. Amber body with light carbonation. Floral resiny aroma. Dry-sweet resiny roasty dry cocoa taste with fruity notes and some honey. Carbonates a lot in the mouth. Dry resiny cocoa aftertaste. Quite unusual, but pretty good. (0.25l draft at Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki.)
