ProblemBase (4) - Kokkola, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2007 does not count
Quite typical finnish bulk beer. Taste like malt, quite bitter, simple, waterly. Serve chilled!

anders37 (18740) - MalmŲ, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a longlasting white head. Malty bready and grassy aroma. Smooth bready malty flavor with some grassy hints. Sweet malty finish with almost no bitterness in the aftertaste.

Nicely malty aroma and overall a pretty decent beer for a bulk lager. Easy and quite mild.

Can brought from Finland by a friend (thanks Sara!)
This poured a deep golden body in the midst of which an impressive torrent of carbonation surged to the small but thick and persistant white head making this possibly the fizziest lager Iíve had. The nose was weak, but kinda nice, fruity, caramelly maltiness ruptured from time to time by dust and just a hint of acidity. The taste is kinda weak as well, but balanced. A weak astringent/bitter hopiness forms the background and the aftertaste, and the maltiness, too subdued, but fruity and pleasant makes the front. Notes of lemon and a really weak hint of alcohol round it up. This does its job quite well, and Iíve had far worse.

kimme (2) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2007 does not count
0.5 cl can, best served cold and malty, dark brown beer. One of the best beers in Finland.

svane (4) - FINLAND - JUN 26, 2007 does not count
330ml bottle. Malty taste. Best of the finnish pale lagers. Not much to say about it.

RichardGretton (4379) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2007
Draught on Silja line ferry between Stockholm and Helsinki. Dark brownish beer with a lightly dry and malty aroma and a malty and mildly dry flavour. Overall a standard mainly malty and lightly dry beer.

McDreamy (24) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2008 Bottle. Nice pale yellow. Virtually no head at all. A typical Finnish bulk beer with an inch of character. Easy to drink and fortunately easy to forget too.
