Aura is a pale and fresh lager with a pleasant saaz hopping. The fresh flavor is aromatic and balanced. Aura has been brewed to celebrate the 120th birthday of the original Aura beer (brewed in Turku), as well as the 775th birthday of the city of Turku, the oldest city of Finland. The hopping has been considerably reduced compared to the original recipe.

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.

Rune (10703) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2007
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)

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.

bottled. yellow and fizzy, faint hay aroma, some corn syrup sweetness and only a tinge of bitterness. all adds up to a boring beer

I like this, if not for anything else, the fact that it’s something they used to drink years and years ago. The fact I don’t like, is the fact that the recipe has been changed. An ok lager anyway.

Dorqui (2168) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 30, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Botteld 0,33L. Yellow pale color, little bubbly one. Compact and evanescent head. Light scent, nearly absent, with notes of cereals and straw, nothing other. Intangible and rather watery taste with notes of dry grass, straw and hay. Modest bitter and watery final.
Thanks to mabjork for this beer.

Bottled. Pale golden colour with a minor white head. The aroma is sweetly malty with hops. there is a sparkling feel to the beer and you can taste malt and a hoppy bitterness. it has a dry aftertaste.

Ungstrup (33459) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2006
A light yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of alcohol and hops. While the flavor is plainly sweet malty with some notes of hops. The mouthfeel is very sparkling.

mrdasilva (120) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2006
Very nice head, golden color. Stingy, harsh aroma with some powerful hoppiness but also some nasty boiled egg smell. Smells a bit like cheap cider. Very hoppy, citric flavor. Not very Finnish at all. Nice malty aftertaste. Not to enjoy in large quantities.
