Real ale on quarter pull engine. A fairly frothy head that clings to the pint wall. Slightly hazy pour with a copper red color. laiti (8513) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 3, 2013
Draught @ Villi Wäinötiong (7620) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 3, 2013
Aroma has strawberries, some vanilla and resiny hops. Flavour has strawberries, resin and vanilla. Hoppy finish with some nettles. Creamy and somewhat sticky palate. The fruitiness is nice, the berry notes are not. Not very Plevna-like product.
Draught @ Villi Wäinö, HelsinkiErasmus_ro (3174) - Alabama, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pours brownish red with a smooth head. Aroma of malts, dark fruity hops, hints of rye and lemon. Taste is malty, resiny hoppy and mildly fruity with hints of berries, rye and caramel. Finish is bready, bitter and mildly resinous with hints of rye and sweet caramel. Okay, quite fruity IPA with a touch of rye. I prefer the regular version, though.
Tap @ Villi Wäinö, Helsinki 01/04/2013. Pours an opaque, dirty brownish red with a medium, beige head. Aroma is very resinous. There is some fruitiness, caramel and berry-like aromas as well. Taste is semisweet, again with a lot of resin. Some berriness as well as pine and grapefruit on the finish. Palate is light medium with not much carbonation. Very enjoyable.

Smells of gravy, meat stock, and soy, some cabbage roll too. Retronasals are pure cabbage. Savoury taste. Amazingly, with all the flaws, it’s a very drinkable beer. Fresh hops are a bit resiny.
(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20130324) The beer poured dark brown and hazy. Aroma had malts, fruitiness, malts and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, fruitiness, rye bread, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste had rye bread, malts and bitterness. Rye was more present than on the ordinary version and the end result was very nice balance between hops and mals. But this one was very fresh and the samples of the normal version I’ve had haven’t necessarily been fresh. RexTalionis (3799) - FINLAND - MAR 23, 2013
Draught. Pours amber in color with thin off-white head. Pine, some fuityness and malty sweetness in aroma. Sweet fruityness a bit with light hints of soapy notes and some grassyness in taste. Grassy bitter in aftertaste. Kingi (670) - - MAR 23, 2013

Tap at pikkulintu, helsinki. Little hazy orange-brown color, small white head. Mainly sweet aroma, slightly hoppy, also fruits, berries, some yeast, vanilla. Sweet malty taste, berries, fruits but nice dry hoppy finish. I think normal smörre ipa is better. VastActiv (7592) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2013
Draught at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Colour is clear dark orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, berries, strawberry jam, dryness, hops and malts. Too juicy for me.
