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.

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 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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.
