2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. L250412. 5.2%. BB 21/12/12. (Alko) Kuopio, Finland.
Clear pale golden colour with average to big white head.
Biscuit malt, soap and mild grassy hops in aroma. Aroma is actually quite nice. Flavour is diacetyl, sweet caramel and bitter grassy hops. Rancid buttery diacetyl is a bit disturbing.

Mild, pure aroma has no impurities. Grass and floral notes. Clear straw, frothy, quite big head is also quite long. Taste has grass, fruits, butter. Medium body, bit sweet with a dry and slightly bitter finish, soft feel. Nice, pure, minimalistic beer with good flavors. Down to earth kinda beer, enjoyed !

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle, 5.2% abv., thanks to Finn. Dense and frothy white head with fine duration. Bright, golden-yellow body. Spotty lacing. Basement smell with pale malts, mid-sweet. Nice, rather discreet taste of malty sweetness added by herbal hops. Rounded and dry, malt-bitter ending. Medium bodied. A likeable pilsener (Tromsř, 16.06.2012).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske 0,5l fra Alko Muonio. Veldig lys gylden med et hřyt, hvitt kremaktig skum som klistrer seg til glasset. Kraftig aroma av forsiktig brent malt. Antydning til frukt. Smaken overraskende fyldig. Smak som aromaen men med rikere fruktnyanser. Rřde plommer. God fruktig bitterhet avslutter et godt řl.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, HElsinki)
Doesn’t smell so clever, just a dry dusty pale pilsner aroma, not really standing out against a typical pale lager. Looks good though, it’s a fairly golden yellow, the head is very tight. Palate nice and full, shows some herbal bitterness before you’ve even swallowed. Some lactic aspects too. Full well-attenuated grainy body, dry, almost resiny bitterness. Good lager once you tasted it, shame it didn’t sell itself so well with the rather feeble aroma.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 500ml (Alko, bottled 220212)
Clear golden color, small white head. Nose is malty with some typical Czech butterness. Light-bodied, even suprisingly watery for 5.4%. Front is empty and watery, a bit metallc, then some sweetish maltyness followed by Saaz btterness in the finish. Clean and boring Bohemian pils.
