1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml can, clear light yellow colour, medium fizzy white mostly vanishing head, fair lacing. Light malty cereal aroma, moderate floral hops with a hint of citrus. Taste is initially moderately sweet and slightly acidic, short bittersweet finish with a slightly chalky feel. Light body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Aroma was even hoppy for a Finnish bulk lager, but the taste wasn’t as bitter as it suggested and finish not interesting at all. Meh.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
0,5L can from K-market Kilpisjärvi Finland.
Pours airy head on a pale straw body.
Head leaves some patterns inside the mug.
Scents of a meadow far away, and maybe a calf let out a fart too.
Taste with bitterness balanced with malts,
metal, hops, grain. Crispy carbonated.
A bit watery mouthfeel. Aftertaste present; some bread, syrup, wood, a bit short.
Overall an under average supermarket lager.

Pretty basic macro lager. Grainy taste. Too much carbonation. Works for sauna. Thats it.

Nothing too incredible but it is a nice crisp beer after a long day exploring Helsinki. Bland Cara Elly and cereal malts as well as light grassy notes. Nothing too crazy at all but easy to drink

50 cl can @ Seinäjoki. Rated on 05.06.2010
Aroma is rather light with some mild grainy notes and corn. Flavour is slightly sweet with corn, grainy malt, some cardboard and hay. Watery and thin, more expensive but still worse than Finnish bulk lagers.
