500ml bottle. Clear dark amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way kasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity hoppy aroma has notes of Williams Christ pear, preserved yellow apple, a grainy touch. Taste is minimally sweet malty, hints of fruit, cautious herbal hoppy overtones, in the finish dry, husky. RexTalionis (3750) - FINLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Draught. Pours copper in color with a small head. A bit of malty nuttyness and light citrus fruityness in aroma. Flavor similar. Slightly bitter finish. ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a deep coppery red-amber body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, red berries, hints of pepper and herbs. OK, but maybe a tad bit faint. Taste is caramel, grains, hints of burnt sugar and grass. Slightly watery palate but still OK and quite quaffable. Pretty smooth, without ever being impressive in any way.

On tap in Blackdoor. First taste a little like lager, weird. After a little while getting better with nice notes of malt and hops. Some good notes of spices.

Draught @ Naamat, Tampere.Hermod (7879) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 26, 2013
Pours a cloudy dark brown and creamy head. Aroma of grass, gooseberries and some sour notes. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, gooseberries, grassy hops and sour berries. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a harsh, bitter, sour finish. The sour notes here are rather off-putting.

Flavor has the same spicyness, biscuit and caramel, light hoppyness. Light bodied, short light bitter finish. Refreshing, easy, decent bitter.
