330 ml bottle. Hazy orange colour, thin white head. Sweet, fruity, caramel-malty, hoppy aroma. The flavour is malty, with deird fruits and caramel notes, and a nice, sweetish, hoppy finish. I’ve only tasted a few of the beers by Stadin Panimo, but this is the best one so far. Hermod (7852) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2011

Bottle from Tbone. Pale amber color. Malt and peach in the aroma. Pineapple. Slightly tart flavor with grassy notes. Hop character lingering on in the aftertaste. Plums, peach, blackcurrant even. Upcoming infection? Whatever it is, it doesn’t hurt this beer. Marko (5706) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 4, 2011
Bottle, batch 368, courtesy of the generous Pekko (thanks Timo!), shared with heavy.jookos (6762) - FINLAND - SEP 16, 2011
It Poured a full misty amber body with a small white head that went away at a medium pace. Sweet gluey malty nose. Peachy taste ending biscuity, sweet, not bad, but not nearly as bitter as I’d expected. Notes of tea. Not too sticky for the abv, but it’s not that refreshing. All in all, good for a strong lager!
Batch #368, 8.3% abv. Orange-amber in colour. Strongly grainy, malty on the nose with a hint of alcohol. A bit of smoke / old wood in the malts. Pretty thick, a bit o sweetness on the palate. Clearly pilsner taste, but supercharged - like a dubbelbock, but with more bitterness and without the (imo) unpleasant syrupiness. esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2011
Coppr color, creamy head. Lots of sweet herbal/grassy hop notes, flowery honey and a hint of currant leaves. Rich, bready and only slightly caramelly maltiness that lack being cloying. Balancing bitterness all the way, still malt oriented. Nice dried fruitiness, aprivots and figs, in the finish elegantly coated with caramel. Slightly alcoholic and sticky finish is the only flaw.
