3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ the brewpub
Aroma is very light with hay, fruits and grainy malt. Slightly contaminated feeling here. Flavour has hay, grainy malt and slight fruitiness. Also grassy hops, gooseberry bush and a slight feeling of contamination – which seems to be the house flavour of Koulu. Feels more like a kellerbier than pale lager. The best beer of Koulu so far in its style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy honey, thin white head. Strongly grass, quite harsh aroma. Medium body, surprisingly bit sweetness...like licorice, evident carbonation, dry flavor and finish. Interesting bit salty licorice in flavor makes this worth tasting.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught @ the brewpub, Turku.
Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a small head. Aroma of pale malts, hay and strong grass. Flavour of pale malts, strong grass, bitter hops, hay and something stuffy. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a mouth-drying finish of hay and some hops. For a pale lager this is quite a good show because of it’s bitterness.
