It was probably decent fresh, but it is going sour... Luck of the draw with the craft beer advent calendar. Why do they include stuff like this?

Day 2 of my Craft Advent Calendar. This is light, clear and bubbly. Definitely not the strongest flavor - it seems a bit watery compared to most ESB's I have encountered. It is has a slight hop edge and it was a nice complement to my spicy Thai chicken. I wouldn't fly to Finland to find this one, but I would drink it again.

330ml bottle (BBD Feb 2015), day 2 of the 2014 Craft Beer Advent calendar, and perhaps the first Finnish brew to appear on Alberta liquor store, um, 'shelves'. Denoted as an ESB on the label, FWIW.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium golden amber hue, with one fat finger of puffy, rocky, and certainly bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some decent spooky striated lace around the glass as it quickly ablates.

It smells of musty yeast, gritty, grainy pale malt, a mildly metallic flintiness, faint underripe drupe notes, and a tacky herbal, grassy dryness. The taste is edgy yeast - the sort that cavorts with wet cardboard - bready pale malt, damp saltine crackers, a hint of crystalline sweetness, ethereal orchard fruit, and that same blah herbal mustiness from the aroma.

The bubbles are still alive and kicking, even probing my outlying palates here and there, the body medium-light in weight, and not particularly smooth, the various herbal, flinty, and yeasty esters really doing a number here. It finishes dry, generally astringent, and still weirdly coppery and herbal.

Yeah, I don't really know if it is the age affecting this one, or the Finnish predilection to toss whatever is handy into the brew kettle - maybe all that herbal character is the local flora standing in for traditional hops, and maybe that metallic flintiness is some hard brewing water, or something. Or maybe not.

330ml bottle poured into tulip 3/10/14

A clear golden yellow with just a few slow bubbles popping up here and there, short lived thin film leaves some polka dot lace

S hard toffee, bread, metallic notes, faint herbal notes, cardboard, and some soggy orchard ground

T more of the same really, metallic, lots of wet leaves, a little toffee, just a little musty, meh

M light bodied, more bubbles then visible in the glass, slimy on the palate, pennies on the finish

O nothing overly offensive but nothing worth writing home about either, I wouldn't go looking for it anyways

I think this might be a county tic for me but that's about it, pretty basic brew

Listed as a bitter at the pub. Pour is tranparent gol with fairly tight head off white in color. Nose is notes of grain and sticky dough dominate with a metallic twang. Taste is muddled, grain and stale cereal and faded hops accompanied by the metallic twang and a semi dry harshly carbonated finish.
