oh6gdx (20930) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 30, 2005
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,

omhper (19972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2003
Sampled draught at the brewpub.
Golden colour, slightly hazy. Fruity with slightly more substance than Ope. Grassy bitterish finish. The bartender admitted that this beer is really an unfiltered version of Ope.

TBone (12999) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2004
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.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2004
The unfiltered counterpart to Ope. Marginally hazy golden. Appley aroma with a hint of bread. Strangely spicy - tastes like I was just eating a pizza before sampling (I wasn’t). Anyway, it’s oddly fruity. I swear they’re making lagers with top-fermenting yeast.

FatPhil (9616) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 5, 2008
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.

rosenbergh (7409) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2010
Draught at Koulu Brewpub, Turku, Finland.
Hazy golden colour with small white head. Mild grainy malt in aroma. Mild fruity hops and some grainy malt in flavour. No need to cheer.

lusikka (6551) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2012
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.

laiti (5970) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2013
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.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2006
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.

mjs (4794) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2008
(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.
