Bottle. Clear and gentle.Some would say it lacks flavour but I found it reasonable but certainly not one of their best.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2007
Dark yellow colored. Nice fruity aroma with banana and sweetness, not very lagerish aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is more lagerish: still nice soft fruits dominate with banana and some honey, mild hoppiness also in aftertaste.

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2007
Almost pale amber color, head disappears quite quickly. Aroma is rather grassy, some fruit. Flavor needs some searching... Bitter finish almost comes first, before you can even find the taste. Grassy, quite malty. Tasted this the day after I had my first taste of Ayinger’s Jahrjundert, and was worried that Cains Finest would have it’s proverbial rear end handed to it, but no, it holds it’s ground rather well. Got this from my brother who just happened to visit Liverpool.

davegore (223) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2006
bottle from sainsburys, there was a white head on iy but you have to be quick to see it. quite malty on the nose but turns into a grassy taste in the mouth. very dry finish, nothing too spectacular but not bad, for a lager anyway
