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 we’re 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.

jookos (5380) - FINLAND - AUG 23, 2016
Can. Deepish golden clear. Pale, bit dull malty nose, some honey maltyness, bulk lager yeastyness, clean. Light med bodied, low bitters, pale malty, pale loafy flavour. Easy drinking, clean, bit dull. Ok for a bulk euro lager though. Has the same sort of dull light doughy yeasty character, but does’nt feel as starchy maizy as some.

Kullankeltainen kirkas olut pienellä, nopeasti häviävällä vaahdolla. Hieman katkeroa, aika vetinen.

Tried it after recommendation by a local alcoholic. Roasted sugar, perfume, fermented apple and some malty taste. Bitter and sweet. Ugly colour. But not a bad beer. Tärve finland!!

Makua löytyy jonkun verran, mutta se vähä ei oikein riitä rasvamakkaran alas huuhteluun.

En öl dom Linda vann på öllotteri. Funkade till maten men ingen höjdare. Lageröl helt enkelt.

Can. Clear amber yellow with frothy head. Aroma is malty, bread, sweet malts. Flavour is sweet-ish, lightly bitter. The deliciousness of this beer is directly correlated with the amount of physical work done, as well as with sauna temperatures in which one is to be found.

Marduk (6162) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 20, 2016
330ml can (K-Citymarket Sello, Espoo). Dark golden color. Medium size, white-beige head, stays. Acetone, malts, paper, cardboard, cereals in aroma. Malty, cereals, hop extract, burnt caramel and dusty in taste. Hop extract, dusty paper and glue in aftertaste. So watery. Nope.

(bottle, 33cl, Beijing) Aroma: not much of a nose. some sweet maltiness and old bread. Appearance: not sure if it is a watered down ale or a robust looking lager. clear, so-so head that dissipates very quickly. Taste: caramelized fruit, some sweet richness and smoke, light hops, touch of rum/bourbon essence. Palate: a bit fizzy, some bitter follow through, light oiliness, slippery. Overall: A bit strange flavor coming from the malts and/or hops that it is bit interesting, but overall, the beer’s shortcomings in nose and flavor and body make it an average beer (at best). Kind of a hardy summer beer.
