About your average pale lager. Nose is grass, flowers and pine. Taste is a little sweet malt. Rated 6/6/04

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I remember this one as same bulk beer as every other pale lager in Finland, but with more character and body.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Legenda Klass III. Deep golden colour with a nice medium bubbly mostly diminishing white head. Bit sweet malty and grassy aroma. Flavour of malts, bit of caramel and some hops. Slight bitter finish. An good but bit thin beer, then again: pale lager.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2007 The label says it’s made respecting the genuine Dortmunder beers, so maybe it should be a dortmunder? I don’t know, it tastes like quite a basic lager with (very) little more maltiness and hoppiness. What I’ve noticed about Hartwall’s beers now is that they use preservatives, like in this one too, so it’s not quite reinheitsgebot beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Bottled 0,33L.
Intense yellow color, medium and extended fizz. Compact and of medium duration foam. Much ordinary and lean scent; light dry grass and malty notes. Lightly pungent taste with a determined and off-key bitter. Much watery and without particular scents. Medium short end.
Thanks to mabjork for this one.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Fully golden with a small, white head. Soft, malty nose. Medium body with sweetish malt and only a short, light bitter finish. According to the label this should be a Dortmunder style, but it definitely lacks body to fulfill that claim. 281205

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Regular gold colour with a short -lived head. Flavour is only of slight bitterness. This beer has no aftertaste and is exceptionally watery. Another macro loser.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Golden coloured, white bubbly head, which disappears quickly. Honeyish malty aroma with hints of licorace. Flavour of licorace and a bit of malt. Makes mouth a bit sticky. Very refreshing beer.
