COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

mabjork (677) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2006
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 (30497) - 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.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Pilsener golden with a nice, creamy, hoppy nose. Rather light-bodied with a good malty feel, but eventually the bittering hops take over resulting in a pronounced, bitter finish. 030106

madsberg (10787) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2006
Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Off white dense head. Sweet and herbal nose. Some fruits and berries are notable. Flavour is quite hoppy and sweet. Thin body and quite vague mouthfeel. Light bitter in the end. NO long lasting on the palate.

omhper (21286) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2005
Bottled. Pale yellow with fizzy, brief head. Aroma of apple and toffee. Sweet and raw, heavy on vegetables, cider and glue. Sharp, fizzy mouthfeel. Offensive and only consisting of flaws with no redeeming features.

oh6gdx (22640) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 13, 2005
Bottled. Golden colour, white thin, disappearing head. Malty hoppy aroma. Bready malty flavour with strong hoppy bitterness. A bit skunky aftertaste. Very watery.

Oakes (13539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2004
Light, golden, slightly sour macro lager of no particular distinction besides a slight graininessand the fact that I had it in Jurmo. Jurmo is a damn fine place to relax.

brunnsbe (77) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2004
For some reason I like the taste of this beer compared to most other Finnish lagers. A bit sweet in the aroma, and compared to the other reviewers I would like to have more hops in it.
