Strong and rich. Smooth and extremely drinkable. Pleasent and lingering palate. (According to Hartwall)

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2007
Golden colored, fastly vanishing white head. Sweetness dominates in somehow perfumy aroma, some honey and hops also there. Medium bodied. Flavor is more balanced with also this honey-sweetness and crispy carbonation. Aftertaste has some bitterness, still too sweet beer.

Doesn’t really differ that much from the regular 4.6% version. As the milder version is already quite sweet and rich, this doesn’t benefit so much of the higher alcohol percentage.

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2006
330ml bottle from Alko in Tampere. Pours a clear pale golden body and a noisy, white head. Citric to the nose. Some bitter citrus flavour with a hoppy touch. Very dry ending. Moderate carbonated. More than average for the style (06.10.2006).

Dorqui (2095) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 1, 2006
Bottled 0,33L. Yellow pale color, light fizz. Compact and adherent head, medium duration. Light straw and malty scent, notes of dampen cereals. Medium pungent taste, modest botter and light alcohol on the end. Thanks to mabjork for this beer.

mrdasilva (120) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2006
Quite full fruity aroma is ruined by some horrible sewer smell. Industrial, rubbery flavor. Too sharp. Something is gone wrong.

stouby (3700) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2006
Bottle, at Helsinki Railstation. Golden with a white head, mostly diminishing, no lacings. Aroma moderate malty, light hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet, light bitter, smooth. Light to medium body, oily, soft carbonated. Boring.

Bottled. Pale golden, not much head. Barlic and plastic aroma. Bitter barlic and a bit malty taste. Boring.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - NOV 22, 2004
(on bottle)Few, among my pack of 15 finish beers this was the last and fortunate, for me, one of the best. Warm yellow color and and carbonation that lasts for the whole pour. Nice malted nose and and small lash of strong hops in the finish. For once the commercial description dosen´t lie.

TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2004
Bottled (BB 02/2005)
Lager outlook, decent white head. Metallic, plastic and slighlty skunked malty aroma. Watery, slightly malty, ends with light harsh flavors. Oily and harsh aftertaste. One-dimensional and boring beer.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2005 (Bottled) Slightly hazy golden color. Medium, foamy , vanishing head. Very mild, somewhat sugary-malty, and slightly stuffy aroma. Malty, sweetish, a bit alcoholic flavor. Low bitterness, finishes sweet and malty. Oily, smooth, quite flat-carbonated palate; light to medium-bodied. Very easily drinkable. A maltier version of Lapin Kulta.
