2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very malty as the normal Karhu but a nicer hoppy flavour. Not much of difference to the original but better anyway.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can at home. Pours pale golden with small white head. Aroma has starch and some hops. The hops are quite similar to normal Karhu, in my opinion slightly more floral and slightly less bitter. I prefer normal Karhu over this, but no bad market lager.

(Can, 0.568 l - BB 02.09.2015, from a shop, 20141128) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had starch, sweetness and metallicness. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were all watery. I managed to taste sweetness, grass, grain and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A thin and sweet industrial lager.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml Can - Golden with a small head. Grain, grass and malt in the aroma. Grass, grain and some earthy and slightly citrussy notes in the taste. Nothing wrong with it, but not very exciting and not something I’ll look to seek out again.

Boks 0,33l. Spandert av og delt med Rune på seanse i WC-veien 4 Jun 14. Gyldenbrun. Middels høyt luftig skum som varer litt. Litt lacing. Beskjeden maltaroma. Smaken er søt malt. Blir litt tørr etter hvert.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Yet another good looking can, however, not something I would recommend. Sickly sweet malt flavor with grass supplanting what ought to have been hop character. Bit of a buttery texture to it as well. Did not enjoy.
