Derek881 (1170) - Istanbul, TURKEY - AUG 21, 2015
Had a pint of this beer in a bar in Helsinki. The beer had a copper-amber color with an average sized foamy white head that had modest retention, but fairly good cling and lacing. The aroma had notes of caramel and herbal malt, with a bit of grainy and earthy notes. The flavor had a lightly sweet malty presence with a blend of grainy hops. A somewhat wet and watery beer with low to average carbonation and a light mouthfeel.

MarkoNm (1797) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 19, 2015
Pours a clear dark golden color, topped with an average sized white head. Grainy malt aroma, sweet feel and some mild grassy notes in the back. Taste is sweet and malty, mild bitterness in the finish. Quite light and plain. Not bad, but just nothing amazing.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Typical Scandinavian macro lager. Bright colour, small nose, a bit metallic in the taste. Like everything else

chinchill (3215) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2015
330 ml can in Rodes Greece in May 2015. 5.3% BB date of 1-2016. Deep amber color. Nice black can with a bear face but this is not a bold beer. Instead, this is a rather average pilsner. Clean and mildly bitter.

olsvammel (4309) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Fruity smell with a light chemical note. Sweet and fruity taste with a light bready malty aroma. Not as unclean as most industrial lagers.

taunusmies (337) - FINLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Clear, amber colour. Small white head. Grainy, sweet malty aroma with grass and corn. Lively carbonated, oily and very light mouthfeel. Too watery. Nothing special.

This is the Swedish edition of the Finnish beer Karhu and it is imported from Sinebrychoff brewery in Finland, Quite different from other beers that is brewed in Sweden by license from the original brewery. Karhu III in Sweden has 5.4 ABV while the Finnish one has 4.6 ABV. Taste is very good with a nice aroma and palate. This beer is well balanced and has a very pleasant taste. One of my all time favorite beersǃ

33 cl can. Pours dark golden. Aroma has butter, grass. Light short palate. Better than the light version. Still I would rather drink water.
