Amber Ale of Mallaskuun Panimo

M as in Amber. Another Ale on the table

Mallaskuun Amber Ale

When I came across the Mallaskun Breweries Beers at Tokmannin I had to buy them all. It is basically my duty to get all the different Finnish Beers tasted. While the list piles up I found the best way to get through is one after another. Foam looks pretty stable. It smells fruity, but also sweet. The first nip went down very well. I was right about the sweetness, its stays nearly through the end, but vanishes shortly before it to make place for a more hoppy sweetness. The body is a little bit to light, but still in range. From a color perspective it is too dark to be called amber. It is a well brewed beer that combines sweetness with a mild bitterness.
