Nurmis (218) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2016
33cl can from supermarket. Amber colour, pours with white head but it quickly diminishes. Soft carbonation. Bready malty taste. Watery. Small bitterness in the end. About average for basic supermarket lager, which isn’t much.

Draught. Awful beer. Or your typical big brewery lager. Taste is watery and very slightly bitter-ish.

adamnase (343) - Kronoby, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2015
Tap @ Hartwall arena. Lame basic finnish market lager. Metallic and harsh taste, especially from a can. Maybe a bit better from tap though. Malty, grainy.

Tastes like a normal average lager with a nice malty fullness and slightly hoppy bitterness, it has nevertheless a good history. The crest on the label depicts a Swedish sword raised and ready to strike against an opposing Russian saber. In 1968, it was the Soviet ambassador in Finland who asked the Finnish Government to prohibit the label, as he believed that caused a misunderstanding to the Finnish war which took place in the early 1800s. It gave Hartwall brewery a lot of pressure and especially the residents of the eastern part of Finland took Karjala to themselves as the preferred brand and sales increased enormously. Prohibition was never implemented and Karjala ’s label remained unchanged. Hop bitterness is probably a little more refined and soft than the usual lagers and it makes it easy todrink and very mouthwatering. Lovely lager.

Basic lager. Clear golden. Malty. Nothing special. Nothing especially disturbing.

ruigo (2042) - PORTUGAL - FEB 20, 2015
A regular lager to go along with a meal with friends. Not much to point out on a rather simple beer.

Senka (1038) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2015
Tap/Can/Bottle - Quite a disappointment in all of the cases. Rather thin and watery, and unfortunately when enjoyed locally is just not worth it at all.

Lame basic finnish market lager. Metallic and harsh taste, especially from a can. Maybe a bit better from tap though. Malty, grainy.
