Clear lager orange beer with big white head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is very malty and grassy hoppy. Tastes malty with little sweetness. Finishes with moderate bitterness and and dry maltiness. Thin palate with medium carbonation, watery at times. Could use more aromas and more bitterness. More like a pale lager this way.

Tap @ SOPP 2013 HKI
Lager-like clear orange coloured beer with a moderate fast dissolving head. The aroma is sweet and malty, as is the taste. There’s a slight fruitiness but overall it’s more like a pale lager than a pils. There’s a moderate amount of bitterness and a light mouthfeel. 6-3-6-2-12=29

Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, grain, fruitiness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter. A very nice and clean pils. The finish was done well.

Draught @ The Brewpub. Rated on 07.06.2013
re-rate with version brewed in here
Aroma is sweet with honey, citrus, grass and some grainy malt. A ’panimosima’ feeling here. Flavour has honey, some grassy hops, citrus and hints of butter. Finishes with hay and some grain. Slightly better but doesn’t rock still.

Draught @ HBF’13
Aroma has butter, some fruity notes and some odd off-aroma. Flavour has lots of bun dough, grainy notes and hints of grass. Not the most typical pils.

Draught @ the brewpub, Helsinki. Rated on on 3.6.2013.
Pours a slightly hazy yellow colour with a firm white head. Aroma of strong grassy hops, mild citrus and hay. Flavour of grainy malts, strong grassy hops, bread-like malts and some fruity yeastiness. Light bodied, very smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. A clean and tasty pils.

Draught@Bryggeri Helsinki, Helsinki. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is slight floral notes, some sweet malts, mild bready notes and some herbs as well. Flavour is sweet malts, mild floral and grassy notes. Quite much on the sweeter side compared to the HBF version, but still a refreshing brew.

On tap at the brewpub
My first of four samples indicates to me that the people behind this brewpub know their stuff. As a bonus it was on the cheap side (for Finland) which means if I had to spend more time in the area I would know where to go to stretch the budget. This might be their best beer or at least the one on tap at the time.

Aroma / Appearance - The coppery base and wispy white head sparkle with a bit of carbonation. Black pepper, cinnamon, and malts contrast with the hoppy bite. It is on the earthy side rather than floral as a good fresh beer of this style should be.

Flavor / Palate - The hops and malt ease the flavor profile into a waiting throat. Semisweet caramel bites carry the bitter transition to a hoppy finish. It lingers in the throat like an hour long sunset. To find something this good I usually have to go to brewpubs that specialize in Germanic styles.

thellgren (308) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2013
0.4 l draught @ Bryggeri Helsinki. Very good. This has plenty of hops to make it tasty, but not too much to scare away those who don’t like really dry beers. Goes very well with herring and other salty fish.
