Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty - lightly grainy and sweetish aroma, some floral fruitiness and light toffee, light grassy - herbal hoppyness. Medium, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish flavor, light floral fruitiness, light toffee and light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light fruitiness and light toffee, light grassy - herbal hoppyness. OK fruity lager with herbal hoppyness - could be drier (and have less toffee).

Borresteijn (4679) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2009

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2012
500 ml bottle. BBE 03/2013.
Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, biscuits, hay and grass. Flavour of strong malts, biscuits, citrus, grassy hops and hay. Some sweet honey and citrus notes as well. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a light, bitter and malty finish with some pleasant citrusy notes. Really good for a pale lager, clearly the best I’ve had so far from this style.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2012
Bottled 500ml (K-Kamppi, BB 03/2013, alc. 4.5 %)
Clear golden color, small white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, pale maltyness and yeast. Light bodied, crisp carbonation, oily palate. Citrus, lemon zest, sweet fruityness in the pale malty flavor. Nothing fancy but balanced and tasty beer for this ABV. This doesn’t taste as a lager. More ale-like.
