(Keg at William K Kurvi, 20140129) The beer poured reddish brown and hazy. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness, caramel and malts. Palate was medium bodied with quite high carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, fruitiness, caramel and bitterness. Aftertaste had hops, caramel and bitterness. A bit confusing and unbalanced brew. laiti (8374) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Draught @ William K. Kurvi. Aroma has fruity hops, some berries and bready malt. Flavour is somewhat hoppy with bready malt, some metallic notes and berries. Finishes with some vegetables. A bit too much off-flavours here. Hermod (7694) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2014

Amber orange beer with dense blonde head. Aroma is nIce with tropical fruits, citrus, as well as caramelly malty and berry jammy sweetness. Taste is hop-driven with piney bitterness, as well as some caramelly sweet malts. Finish is long, quite strong and bitter. Palate is medium full and stingy. Pretty straightforward and hop-driven, but tasty Amber Ale.

Spicy hop aroma with a big sweet caramel-like vibe. There’s also quite a lot of bitter hop notes in the nose. The taste is flowery with roasted malt, light fruitiness and pine needles. Rich and bread like. Nice long bitter finish.
