Very malty as the normal Karhu but a nicer hoppy flavour. Not much of difference to the original but better anyway.

kalervo (684) - FINLAND - APR 14, 2013
Just as dull and tasteless as regular Karhu III. I regret buying this beer.

HopfenWeisse (1025) - - APR 13, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2013 Clear golden color with medium head. Aroma is malt, hint of hops. Flavor is malt, sweet, slightly hops. Only bit better than basic Karhu III. Retest: not bad on hot summer day.

Moebbels (308) - FINLAND - APR 12, 2013
Slightly reddish color, a bit darker compared to normal Karhu. Nose is light, indifferentcto normal Karhu. Taste is evercso slightly bitter with a hint of caramel. Nothing special.

Hermod (3141) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 11, 2013
568ml can. Clear golden, thin white head. Starch, grain and metal in nose. Flavor has some weak fruity hoppines at first, then the harshness kicks in big time. Awful finish. Ugly.

tiong (3727) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 10, 2013
568ml can from Alepa

Pours clear golden with a large head. Aroma of starch, hay, metallic notes and hints of vegetables. Taste is crisp with hints of hay, grass, starch and vegetables. Finishes with dry, bready and starchy notes. Not that different from the regular one, this one is probably more fresh and you can actually notice some distant hints of hops. Why did I even bother to buy this?!

mile (2969) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2013
Can. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light, malty - grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, no bitterness. Body is light, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor. Finish is short to average, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, some sharp metal, faint grassy hoppyness. Guys from marketing surely had fun time when naming this one.

viikinkiHarald (3) - Kokkola, FINLAND - APR 6, 2013 does not count
Bought this without reading anything about it. Poured in a pilsner glass and took a mouthfull with a deep breath. What a disappointment! I´ve tasted so many good SAAZER- and GOLDING-beers so I had my expectations way too high. Booring, typical Finnish piss-lager-beer.

JK54B (1539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 6, 2013
Sweetish and malty nose. Pale head. Clear golden color. Sweetish malty taste. Not very hoppy. Mild hops at end. Not very special. (thanks Antti)

Though marketed as a special version of Karhu, this "double hop" version tastes about the same as the normal version. So, not too much of anything except some nasty sort of bitterness.
