1 pint can from local supermarket. Decent head, lots of bubbles, colour is darkish yellow. Looks like the ordinary Karhu beer, but taste is much lighter. There is some faint aftertaste of hoppiness, though. Quite different from what I expected (i.e. not twice as hoppy as the normal Karhu).

Pint can. Deep golden color, frothy white head. Vaguely hoppy aroma with grain. Malty flavor with perhaps a tad more bitterness than their usual. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Better than basic Karhu, though "double hops" doesn't amount to much if you start close to zero.

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.

Dermi (1079) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2013
568 ml, canned. Pours clear orange-tinted gold with a decent white head. Aroma: Malt and grass, mild spices.Taste: Moderately sweet, pleasant mild bitterness. Some malt in flavour and English hopping. Palate: Quite light body, average carbonation. Not bad, just little bland, then again I guess it allows the hops come up in flavour, that I like.

Braastad (458) - FINLAND - MAR 26, 2013
Clear golden, medium head. Aroma has sweet and breay malts, some grassy hops. Sweetnes on the taste too. Almost sugary. Not much hops, just a hint of bitternes in the end. Suprisingly solid body although thins out in the aftertaste. Too much carbonation.

liinis (1763) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 18, 2013
Very malty as the normal Karhu but a nicer hoppy flavour. Not much of difference to the original but better anyway.

Psytron (1787) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2013
Smell of vanilla and herbs. Golden colour, white head. No starch to be noticed. Slightly sweet, fizzy carbon. Aroma of hops, spruce. Does not end up being irritating.
