Keg (St. Urho’s, Helsinki)
Slightly sweet fruity aroma. Sweet smooth, slick, palate. OK carbonation. Sweet caramelly grains. I don’t get this, it’s just a sweet boring beer. OK for a lager, I guess, but not as good as a nice real ale. Putting this in S/H/V is not justified, IMHO, as it isn’t so distinctly flavoured by whatever they supposedly flavoured it with.
