lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2012
500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A.
Pours a clear yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma of grainy malts, weak bready and grassy notes. Flavour of grainy malts, not-so-fresh grassy hops, citric tartness and weak breadiness. Light bodied, quite flat carbonation and a grainy, slightly bready finish. Does not taste very fresh.

mile (2980) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle. Light golden, small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty and sweetish aroma, light bread and light grassy hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light bread and faint hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty and sweetish, faint hoppyness. Malty and sweetish helles - too sweet/lacks the bitterness.

EithCubes (4885) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Tap at their tap. Super pale/light yellow with lots of carb and a white head. Sweet malt nose a little mashy, but not in the mouth, where it’s a beautiful chalky sweetness with little grain or bitterness, and a bready resolution. Light-medium body just super, super soft, and vor Ort this is quite refreshing.

PlusOne (1) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2012 does not count
Overall good taste, got more Character compared to Munich Beers. Will compare it soon, but as Bavarian local Beer it is not bad.
