laiti (8081) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2013
Draught @ the brewpub
Malty aroma with some hops, nuts and a slight feeling of contamination (Koulu house aroma). Flavour is malty with toffee, caramel, some nuts and very slight sourness with earthy notes. Finishes with moderate hops. Good, the sourness does not disturb and actually somehow even suits this beer.

Erasmus_ro (2538) - Alabama, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Tap @ Oluttupa Viisi Penniä. Pours a slightly hazy amber. Aroma is grapefruity, citrusy with a slight whiff of rotten egg or vegetable. Taste is grapefruity, rather mild, some citrus, that rotten something there on the outskirts as well. Palate is alright. Definitely not a vienna though. Probably another one in need of a re-rate. Probably not in proper condition.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2012 Amber colour, beige head. Rubbery aroma, also some spices. Rather stinging, tries to be herby but doesn’t succeed so well.

FatPhil (14043) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 18, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 Draught (Koulu, Turku) original version (6:4:6:4:13=3.3)
Rich perfumey aroma, a touch floral. Rich smooth malty body, carbonation soft. Summer 2010, and the cellar temperature is warmer than normal, so this is much more flavoursome and aromatic than normal. Plenty of cakey malts, very refreshing. A touch of sticky hops in the finish. Lovely fresh lager.
Rerate: Tap (SOPP2012, Turku) - as Toinen Kesä "unfiltered version of kesä" (5:3:5:3:10=2.8)
Sweet fruity aroma, a little sugary sweetness. Slightly sticky palate, pleasantly crisp carbonation. Some slight meatiness, some kidney. Nice bitter hoppy finish, fresh full whole hop flowers - noble, and a bit metallic.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2008
Tap at Koulu. Copper with thick off white / even beigish lacing head. Nose is syrupy, buttery, malty, full and sweet. Flavor is sweetish, malty, syrupy, a bit toasted bread, even hoppiness and some butterness to round it up. I was told it’s a bitter, but could be vienna too. Nothing summerlike in this, but fairly musty, non-refreshing, full wintery beer to me. Good and tasty.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2008
Draught @ brewpub. Clear copper w/ quite thick pale head. Mildly malty and syrupy nose. Some banana spiciness. Toasty maltiness, little spices and hops in the flavor. Clean and simple, like all Koulu brews I’ve had.
