DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2011
330ml can bought in Rhodes, drank at home. 5.4%. Orange-amber with a rapidly thinning white head spotting with yeast. Aroma of rotting fruit, slight refuse, glue..banana and brown sugar at a push. Better flavour with hints of breadiness, nuts..more old fruit and refuse. Not worth exporting the width of Europe and back again.

liinis (1563) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2011
Same malty karhu but with a bit more depth and kick. a little tastier. Why do they plan on lowering the alc. percentage on market beer in Finland?

Psytron (1305) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2011
A bit richer taste than Karhu III, but not enough for the extra effort and price to get this one.

ElDesmadre (1524) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 15, 2011
