The beer is finished with a light bright yellow color. The foam is white with medium bubbles. The foam disappears quickly, leaving no trace. Aromas of sweet malt. Is a little lemon and cookie dough in the aroma. Even a little honey and straw. The smell is a bit anonymous and thin. Tastes buttery malt, apricot, lemon, a little sugar. Towards the end, a little honey and straw. Also a brödig taste throughout. But rather thin flavors. Light body, slightly bitter and medium carbonation. A little sweet and very thin.

FatPhil (12760) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 20, 2016
330ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
On opening there’s an immediate yucky limey stink, you can only imagine how much worse that is on pouring. In the glass, it’s very corny. Taste is sweet, corny, and watery. Very poor macro-like lager. Finish is a little bit like a sweet perfumed soap, more corn, some paper. Ugh.

TBone (15601) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle 330ml (from Sokos Herkku, Tampere)
Clear golden color, small mostly vanishing white head. Grainy, corn aroma. Light-bodied. Sweetish maltyness. A bit grainy and also slightly cardboardish. Only light bitterness. Quite bulkish.

rosenbergh (9744) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2015
330 ml bottle. 4.7%. BB 09/04/16. (Sokos) Tampere, Finland.
Clear golden color with a mid-size white head. Corny and dry malty aroma. The flavor is wet cardbord, corn and dry malt. Boring lager.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4168) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 21, 2014
On tap at the GJBF in Osaka 2014. Their lager pours a clear straw gold with a bready malt nose, solid but unexciting. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a sugary sweet flavor makes this seem like a macro adjunct lager. Meh.

maekchu (3240) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Thin, stinky nose. Powdery, sugary malt. Light hazy pale straw, thin skim of head.Mild tangy citrus, light sweetish malt, crackers and cookie dough. Thin body. Okay. Mild all around. Nothing very special.

On tap @sbwf13. Pale golden with white head. Aroma of pale malt and fruit. Taste is sweet, grain, syrup and grass. Clean but boring

Svesse (7679) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2013
(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 5 Oct 2013) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, slightly hoppy nose with bread, hay and grassy hops. Malty taste with notes of bread, hay and grassy hops in a finish with a moderate bitterness. Medium body, with a slight malt sweetness. Uncomplicated, but quite drinkable.

Sample at SBWF 2013. Mild smell with some light citrus and light malty. Similar taste. Doesn’t stand out, too mild.
