The worst of the beers that I tried on the ferry from Stockholm to Helsinki. Strong pale lager funk, very reminiscent of a Budweiser.

DraftDodger (934) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2016
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.

adamnase (349) - Kronoby, FINLAND - NOV 22, 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.

visionthing (4600) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2015
On tap at Café Mascot, Helsinki. Deep golden with a lasting, but small head. Fairly grainy aroma with mild grassy and fruity notes and hints of cooked vegetables. Medium sweet with the usual industrial pale lager flavours. Drinkable, but highly forgettable.

Derek881 (1236) - Denver, Colorado, USA - 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.
