1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
0,33l bottle. Deep golden color. This beer has to be rated with other Finnish bulk lagers in mind. Compared to these, the beer has a slightly more malty body. This is nonetheless quite a typical Finnish lager.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
330 ml bottle. Golden color, white head. Slightly sour aroma, sharp taste with a malty finish. I wouldn’t choose this beer even from among the other Finnish bulk products.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale fizzy golden, foamy white head. Grassy hops on the nose with sweet honeyish malts. Flavor is buttery malts and slight hayish hops. A bit mineral, of course. Light to medium bodied with low carbonation. Out of Finnish bulks, this one has more of a German feeling, but stills doesn’t quite do it.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
330ml bottle. Blind horizontal tasting.
Almost no aroma, maybe dust, but perhaps the glass needed to be washed. I don’t think this tastes of anything - even my tapwater tastes of more.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aura is light yellow beer with thin white head. In the aroma there is grass and little sweetness. Flavour is slightly sweet and there are also some nice hops. There are some bitterness but too watery palate spoils the nice aromas of hops. There are some good things in the Aura but it is too watery and so it can’t success.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle. Another typical Finnish lager, amber with a loose white head; grainy aroma; full bodied, but remarkably tasteless; sweet malty finish with a trace of hops.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle. Lasting white foam over a deep golden body. Slightly grassy aroma with hints of malt. The initial taste is grainy followed by distinctive notes of apples and quite bitter lemons. Thin palate (thanks to Marko for bringing a bottle all the way from Tampere to The Midnight Sun Witchcraft Conference in Vardø - 01.07.2007)

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a trade with oh6gdx. The body is light gold with a trace of a white head that sticks around. The aroma has hints of bologna and some rasins. Surprisingly sweet. The taste is light romaine lettuce with some notes of canned pears. This is an interesting and strangely sweet pale lager. There is a hint of raw potatoes in the finish. A decent warm weather brew.
