2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at brewpub. Hazy golden, very small but lasting pale head. Simple, mildly hayish aroma with some maltiness. Minty and grainy malty flavor, little hay. Smooth strong carbonation. Good balance, nicely fresh pale lager. A real thirst quencher.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draught at the brewpub on 2008-08-30) Pale golden. Little bit hazy. Long lasting dense white head. Light nose with bit hoppy aroma. Light bodied palate with lot of carbonation. Bitterness, hint of sweetness and little bit of grapefruit in taste. Not so harsh aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Koulu. Hazy yellow golden, very nicely lacing head. Subtle nose of malts and fresh hops. Flavor is subtle too (maybe too subtle for accompanied bratwurst) with nice fresh beer aftertaste of malts, yeast and even hops. Slightly harsh bitterness, but very subtle. Somehow reminded me of Nokia Pils, but this is better.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2010 Keg (Koulu, Turku)
Slightly hazy light orange. Slightly farty grainy aroma. Mild
hoppiness. Mostly soft creamy palate, but there’s sharp fizzy
carbonation which is a little harsh. Creamy aroma and taste. OK summer
beer, but lacking in guts. 5:3:5:3:10=2.6
Rerate: Summer 2010, where the cellar was warmer, so this was served
at a good temperature. 6:3:6:4:13=3.2
Bready, and honey too. Lovely and drinkable. Served at the right
temperature this has so much more flavour.

Draught at Koulu. Bright golden color with thick creamy head. Sweet honeyish malty aroma with some herbal hops in the background. Sweet flavor with good aromatic maltiness and mild hoppiness. Too sweet.

Draught. Hazy light yellow with a creamy white head, lacings. The aroma has a sweet scent of hops and fruits. The flavour is a blend of hops and malt with ich carbonation. Sweet and hoppy after taste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2005 Draught. Hazy yellow colour, foamy lacing white head. Malty and a bit citric aroma. Malty and wheaty flavour with bitterish hoppy finish. Refreshing, rich carbonation. Hoppy aftertaste. 6464 13
Re-rated Dec 3rd, 2005:
Hazy, yellowish orange colour. Aroma is kouluish, cooked vegetables, malty and hoppy with citric hints. Flavour is cooked vegetables and malts. Quite boring.. but during hot summerdays very refreshing. 5352 10 now,

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Draught@Koulu, Turku) Hazy pale golden-orange color with a small but tight head. Very mild, flowery-hoppy aroma with a hint of grass and honey. Somewhat acidic, hoppy flavor with some fruitiness. Smooth, light to medium-bodied palate with medium carbonation. A well-made, but not very interesting lager. I found the filtered version slightly better.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught @Panimoravintola Koulu
Same beer than Ope but unfiltered. Hazy yellow color with small steady and creamy head, lace. Mild, a bit fruity and malty aroma. Good malty body, a bit sweet and maybe slightly unclean. Does not differ much from Ope.
