Pyynikin Sessio Red Ale on the table

The second chance for Pyynikkin Red Ale

Pyynikin Sessio Red Ale

Some beers get their second chance. This time it is the Pyynikkin Sessio Red Ale. Actually I accidentally bought the bottle while looking for a another Red Ale. So I ended up with the one I already reviewed some time ago and then later realized that I didn't write the review. So I actually got lucky and it is now time to write the review. The serving temperature was room temperature, means I didn't put the beer into the fridge.It comes with a mild bitterness and a pretty stable foam. The body is pretty thin, even for a Red Ale. The light sweetness accompanies the bitterness well, but that's actually it. I was living for some time in Ireland and from an Irish point of view this is not a Red Ale.
