TBone (14899) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2013
Can pint. Clear golden color, decent white head. Aroma has some grassy hoppyness, sweet Koff-type maltyness. Light bodied. Sweetish maltyness in the flavor, quite similar to Karhu but perhaps with some extra rough hops in the finish. Useless.

visionthing (4060) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2013
56,8cl can from Stockmann Herkku, Helsinki. Pours clear golden with a white head. Seems like almost all the hops are outside the can and not inside. The usual pale lager aroma. grainy with notes of cooked vegetables and hints of fruits and possibly grass too. Medium sweet with some bitterness, but pretty watery and flavourless. Slightly more bitter the the usual pale lager. Some bitterness in the rather short aftertaste. Drinkable enough, but so is water and I’m not quite sure what I would prefer. I guess it depends on the situation and location...

Can. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, hop, grass. Flavour is fruit, malt, hop, grass. Boring beer.

Zarkam (536) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2013
Clear golden colour, fizzy carbonation, small white head aroma of cereal malts with some minor hints of grassy and floral hops, watery texture. Certainly could’ve actually used more hops instead of a minimal amount of two different varieties and it might even stand out from the crappyish Finnish bulk lagers.

Migmar (255) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2013
Watery and fizzily carbonated. Mildly citric with medium sweetness, hoppy bitterness is almost none. Sadly, the name "double hops" seems to mean it having two different types of hops, not the double amount. Although the standard Karhu remains my favourite among the Finnish bulk lagers, this version does not impress.

Tap. Little white foam. Clear golfen yellow color. Aroma is very faint, hints of grain. Taste has grain, little fruit, bread. Just the same as a regular lager. Maybe a but sweeter.

taunusmies (337) - FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
Pours clear, dark copper colour. Sweetish malts, hops (how come..) with notes of grass, flowers, metal and soap. Medium bodied, more pronounced mouthfeel than regular Karhu has. A bit of disappointment this is, greater amount of hops would be needed.
