Palme (3604) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2011
0.33l bottle. Iki pours a light clouded orange body with a massive and fluffy white head. Aroma is low with notes of bitter hops, citrus and some peach. Light-bodied and average carbonation on this one. Flavors are not bad at all. Mild malty with some nice sweet and fruity notes. Honey and herbs. I have always thought that this was just another Asian pale-lager, but this is actually a drinkable beer. Ends with a lasting herbal aftertaste.

liinis (1758) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2011
This one surprised me positively. I expected it to be a nice try. Very tasty beer with good hops and surprisingly well fitting flavor of sweet green tea with a slice of sweet lemon.

lusikka (7624) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2011
330 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy, pale yellow colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of citrus, carrots, green tea and yeast. Flavour of yeast, citrus, pale malts, wheat and some herbs. Gets better when it warms up a bit. Slick mouthfeel and a dry, mild fruity finish. All in all a very weird beer.

33cl bottle from Citymarket. Poured pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is herbal and fruit juice. Flavor is dishwater mixed with some citrus and some tea. Drain pour. Didn´t work for me.

Kavu (3480) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2011
Pours hazy yellow with a high head. Aroma is malts and citrus. Flavor is quite soft with malts, citrus and some tea. Surprisingly interesting, but nothing really special.
