2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
50 cl can @ home, BBE 23.07.2014
Yeasty and messy aroma with strawberries and toffee. Flavour is also messy with yeasty notes, toffee candy, strawberries. Some herbal and grassy tones at the end of the glass. Flat palate, almost no CO2 at all. But at least the alcohol does not come through.
Can 50 cl. golden, clear with minimal white head. Sweet malt and grainy aroma. Light bitter with a alc, and grainy end. Aukedebier (30) - KAUTTUA, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2017 Bought a 500ml can from the local liquor store ’Alko’. Appearance: clear dark golden beer with hardly any head. Nose: hints of malt, banana and some alcohol. Taste: malty with some hints of banana. Mildly hopped and a bit too little carbonation. Feels like it´s been sitting in the glass fro a few hours. Not really bad, but not super interesting.
I want to adjust one thing on this rating: it seems that there is a difference between the batches. I now have a can that gives a much better head an laces then the last time. It also tastes more mild then the last one. liinis (1774) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2016
strong alc. and not that well hidden as in the better beers. pale golden colour, clear. big white head. Giochaurand (533) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours orange copper with medium head. Aroma is malts and nuts. Taste is bread, caramel and malts. SvanteL (591) - SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2015
Guldgul med litet vitt skum som försvinner snabbt. Doften är maltig och söt, här finns också någon mycket söt frukt. Även smaken är mycket maltsöt med en extra lite fruktsötma plus en liten eldighet från alkoholen. I munnen känns den lite tjock och oljig och det är ganska lite kolsyra. Tja, ingen höjdare, lite Elefantölsvarning.

50cl can from Alko. BE 28.02.15. Pours deep amber, thin white head, low carbonation. Very malty aroma, bready notes, some sweetness, honey perhaps. Flavor has grain, honey, bread, caramel. Finish is sweet with hints of bread. Some alcohol warmth, but at least now, at 8-10 C not very alcoholic, abv nicely hidden. Better than expected really.

500ml (SOPP2014, Helsinki, Saturday)Kavu (4973) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Sweetish malty aroma. A little heady, but not boozy. Sweet and full palate, smooth, perhaps a bit heavy. Sweet malts in the taste also. It wasn’t the coolest of cans, and it was a very hot day, but taste-wise it didn’t say 8% despite the warmths.
0,5l can from Alko, Hietalahti. Pours clear amber with a low head. Aroma is sweet malts with some alcohol. Flavor is sweet malts with plenty of metallic alcohol. Not too great. SperkeleForce (791) - FINLAND - APR 30, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Can 50 CL. Pours copper clear with white lacing head. Creamy mouth feeling. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 28, 2014
Amber colour, small white head, which vanishes quite quickly. Aroma is some strange sweetness, some alcohol, mild resin and wood. Flavour is alcohol, sweet malts, some resin, wood and mild grainy notes. Quite green applelike taste as well when it warms up a bit. Not the cleanest of beer, not interesting in any way. Close to bulk high abv stuff.
