From tap. Steer clear from this! Yellow color with light head. Unpleasantly metallic citrus aroma. Palate is light and watery.

Much better than many cheap beers sold in finland. Better taste than many others cheaps. Much easier to drink than other cheaps.

Kirkas, hieman kullankeltaista tummempi olut vaahtoaa niukasti. Tuoksu maltainen ja aavistuksen ruohoinen. Maku vetinen, maltainen ja hieman pahvinen. Jännä, hieman ruohoisen mausteinen jälkimaku. Perusbulkki.

I guess this is the beer I’ve been consuming most before mikro beers entered my mind. Cheapest beer in my store. 89 cents. Still works with a football game. Not much taste, aroma reminds you of the local drunks. Nothing extra but sometimes it causes great nostalgia.

Pours golden with a small head. Malty aroma. Taste is mostly malty with bread and a hint of slightly metallic hoppy notes. Soft co2. Mild, watery and rather tasteless. Just another bulk lage. (0,33l can)

Golden beer, typical looking lager. Aroma is a bit roasty, malty. Taste is also roasty, which I don’t remember sensing from other lagers. Also has some bitterness in taste. Good for parties, just like any lager, but in my opinion this is maybe the best Finnish bulk lager.

Nurmis (426) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2016
33cl can from supermarket. Amber colour, pours with white head but it quickly diminishes. Soft carbonation. Bready malty taste. Watery. Small bitterness in the end. About average for basic supermarket lager, which isn’t much.

Draught. Awful beer. Or your typical big brewery lager. Taste is watery and very slightly bitter-ish.

adamnase (415) - Kronoby, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2015
Tap @ Hartwall arena. Lame basic finnish market lager. Metallic and harsh taste, especially from a can. Maybe a bit better from tap though. Malty, grainy.

TorbenJensen (1464) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2015
Tastes like a normal average lager with a nice malty fullness and slightly hoppy bitterness, it has nevertheless a good history. The crest on the label depicts a Swedish sword raised and ready to strike against an opposing Russian saber. In 1968, it was the Soviet ambassador in Finland who asked the Finnish Government to prohibit the label, as he believed that caused a misunderstanding to the Finnish war which took place in the early 1800s. It gave Hartwall brewery a lot of pressure and especially the residents of the eastern part of Finland took Karjala to themselves as the preferred brand and sales increased enormously. Prohibition was never implemented and Karjala ’s label remained unchanged. Hop bitterness is probably a little more refined and soft than the usual lagers and it makes it easy todrink and very mouthwatering. Lovely lager.
