On tässä hieman enemmän luonnetta kaikin puolin kuin III:ssa. Ei niin vetinen ja makukin parempi.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear amber with little white head. Aroma is the typical lager stuff with some more apple and malty character. Taste is slightly soapy, more artificial apple and graininess. Good mouthfeel, drinkable. Better than expected!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and herbs. The flavor is lightly sweet. Still a somewhat wet and watery beer like it’s lighter sibling. Better than Lapin Kulta and Koff in the Finnish derby competion.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
The worst of the beers that I tried on the ferry from Stockholm to Helsinki. Strong pale lager funk, very reminiscent of a Budweiser.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Helsinki-Copenhagen 24/5 2016. 33 cl on the plane to Copenhagen. Stern Bear looking kind of hungrily at you on the can. Pours clear golden yellow with white head. Moderate lacing. Aroma is not particulary strong. Sweet malts with a whiff of something that reminds me of a sweaty shoe on a summerday. Prickly carbonation and watery palate. Taste is medium sweet with only a light bitterness for balance. Pretty standard lager - a bit on the sweet side. But no complaints on a summerday.
