Can, 56.8 cl. Clear golden yellow colour, tiny white head. Mild aroma of grainy malt and a hint of hops. The flavour is mildly malty, with notes of grass and metal. Dull and watery.

Itís your typical bulk lager. Thereís not much taste except maybe a hint of malts. Or maybe itís bitterness?

(Tasted blindfolded) darker yellow, a bit brown beer. No head. Watery taste, but palate is in somewhat nicely balanced. Quite mysterious beer, no distinctive flavors, so bland. Quite annoying actually, this is not bad but flavors are so well hidden.

1000ml can. Canít really say that itís much different from Karhu IV A, except from a slightly metallic finish. Maybe itís because of the huge can...

Karhu (a Bear). I bought 4 cans of this from discount desk, just to relax after a busy work week. First can - nothing. Typical light lager with maybe a little bit more hops than average. Second can with a ham sandwich with dijon mustard - now weíre talking. This beer really needs salty smoky ham taste and dijon-mustard-cattle-shed-taste with it. Then we are flying. Good points for good food beverage.

33cl can poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, very dark gold with not much head. Aroma of corn, grains and some light caramel and earthy herbal hops. Taste is light bitter. Grains, herbal grassy hops and light corn. Medium bodied with a thin yet and slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. My mom brought this back from her trip to Finland so Iím stoked. Plus, that bear looks kinda badass.

330 ml bottle. Aroma malty and a bit chemical. Tastes malty, tangy and a bit chemical. Better than I made it sound..
