Pours pale clear golden colour with medium white head. Aroma of light grain and a bit sweet malts and grass. Flavour of sweetish malts, dry hay, grain and some metal. Straightforward and easy to drink.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured a light copper, head disappeared almost immediately, taste was so weak I was incredulous. Smelled slightly more promising, light and refreshing.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Best thing about this beer is its aroma. Poured with a fizzy white head that settled out right away and no lace. Color is a deep amber with lots of large bubble trails. Aroma is beery, malt, and a little hop. Flavor is sharp with the carbonic tang and sweet, but not all malt sweet. Also a little wet cardboard. Body’s on the thin side and carbonation is overdone. Finish is like flavor and of medium length. Don’t want any more.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Canned, pint. Pours clear golden colour with medium sized creamy white head. Malty aroma with hints of grains. Medium sweetish taste with short and mild hoppy aftertaste. Light bodied with thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Average lager, however with slightly stronger character than Karjala...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Coppery coloured Karhu II darker than finnish pale lagers usually are. Sweetish malty taste is a bit harsh and reasonably strong. Maybe the most popular mass lager in Finland.

On draft in Helsinki. Nothing special here. Clear and crisp, but watery and lacking flavour.
