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.

Toomio (162) - Joensuu, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Hieno on etiketti, mutta aikamoinen litku. Parempi jättää saunan oven koristeeksi. Ei kyllä oikein maistu. Tympiä kalija.

Armadill0 (251) - FINLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle. Light yellow with a small white head. Aroma has grain and corn. Taste has grain, bread, some citrus and toffee. On the bitter side as a whole. A basic lager with a small, almost unnoticeable twist.

djoeye (1206) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2013
33 cl brown bottle 4.5%abv from Joulupukki @ Kilpishalli. White head. Few lacings. Golden bright body. Bubbly. Scents; bread, sweet malts, or sweet corn, dewy grass and meadow. Taste; grains, sweet malt, faint hints of apple. Semi-dry to palate, not full bodied. Ends with the bread and a little bitter under. Drinkable but a bit watery. The title "Aura" is an overstatement.

Nijstrom (52) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Notes of malt and some hops. Moderate sweetness and bitterness in the taste. The beer is light-bodied with a thin/watery texture and soft carbonation.

Zarkam (369) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 10, 2013
330ml bottle from supermarket in Kotka, clear gold colour, small white head. Aroma of grain, floral hops, hay and a hint of bread. Balanced taste, light body, short bitter finish. Nothing particularly interesting, but actually good for a Finnish supermarket lager, would’ve even been a good lager overall if there was more hops.

Snegurochka (382) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2013
330ml bottle from Alko in Hetta. Golden body with foamy head that rapidly diminishes and leaves a filmy layer. Sweet corn, wet grass and sweet malt aroma, that is also mirrored in taste. Slight bitterness and some earthy notes in the finish. Better with food! 28.Sep.2013

Migmar (240) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2013
Bulk lager with no special traits except some medium sweetness. Not even brewed in Turku anymore, so no local feeling either.
