Finwe (392) - Grankulla, - FEB 4, 2013
330ml bottle from some grocery store. Pretty much the same poison as the original Karhu lager, but you can taste East Kent Goldings hops.

djoeye (897) - Tromsř, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2014
Scents of hops, grass, juicy malts, bread dough. Persistent off white head, golden clear body, puffy lacings. Taste; grains and malts, pearly light hops, citric juicy bready stuff. Mild as lager to palate. Finishes with bread, dark bread, some hops underneath. Drinkable but not impressive. Pint can 4.6%abv b@supermarket in Finland, t@home Norway.

TBone (11914) - 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 (2394) - 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...

gunnfryd (9909) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2013
Can. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, hop, grass. Flavour is fruit, malt, hop, grass. Boring beer.

Zarkam (338) - 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 (219) - 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.

Armadill0 (204) - FINLAND - JUL 11, 2013
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.
