UPDATED: FEB 6, 2011 I’ve had this beer a hundred times before. From the most common lagers in Finland this manages to probably be one of the most drinkable ones. A little bit of sweetness with some character to it. Malty and grainy but a little bit of cardboard too.

330 ml can. Rated @ 22.3.2009.
Clear golden colour, foamy white head. Grainy aroma, mild hoppy flavour. Full bodied? Not. Pours down just like any other pale lager.

Draught ,our hotel bar in Laitila. I’m guessing this is the national bog standard lager in Finland as everywhere seemed to sell it. What to say about it ? Typical lager looks. Nasty metallic notes. Really pretty bloody awful but I like the Bear.....

progressive (74) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2010
This is quite roasty and actually even creamy, maybe the most creamy common pale lager here in Finland, and that’s way the best, with Lapin Kulta. Anyway, common crap. [0,33 Can]

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2010
Dirty brown color; strong, but unpleasant somehow striking malty/metallic hop aroma; light body and watery mouthfeel; flavor of some malt with metallic hop notes in the finish and with every detail (which there are little) screaming "industrial" in your face. In any sense it´s not pleasure to drink and on the other hand the dirty feeling cuts even the refreshness of, so there´s only one use I can think of to this, and considering it´s strength there are far better choices even to that purpose. But at least this beer defines the importance of marketing. It´s pretty funny to hear people talking of this as "the only real beer" and "the beer of the beers" and not just in ironic sense, because really what it tastes is like spring water added some dirty additives - and for many that´s the same as "tasty". Even more funny though, is hearing over 100kg weight robust man talking of how this below 4.7 abv beer "goes to a head like a hammer".
