Ölbeat 253: Beer Hunter's Mufloni Umbalabisse

Brewery: Beer Hunter's (in Finnish)
Country: Finland
Style: Premium Lager
Abv: 4,5 %
What about the beer?
Colour is hazy straw yellow with a large white head. Aroma has lemon and grainy malts. Taste starts with biting sour-bitter citrus. Biting bitter grapefruit takes over with dry grainy malts. Near the finish the dry-bitter flavour gets piny notes. Aftertaste has piny-malty dryness and grapefruit bitterness.

Mild but excellent hopped Lager. Citrus, malts and piny flavours are nicely present. Believe or not, this was brewed an American football team Pori Bears for their 35th anniversary. Much better than most of the band-label beers available. And much better than the official Super Bowl beer.


In American football, they aren't so much after the goals but touchdowns, right? Don't know or give a shit about the game, but it's nice to see that sport clubs want to have their own brews for celebration and have them brewed in small local breweries. That's punk and so is this.
