Beerheart65 (1000) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2013
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.

tkrjukoff (4082) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2011
Tap @ Koulu. Pours clear pale golden with a small head. Fruity, hoppy, malty aroma. Flavor is malty, fruuty and well hopped. Finishes with a good longlived bitter aftertaste.

laiti (5753) - 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.

FatPhil (9405) - 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.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2008
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.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2008
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.

Hermod (3307) - Vantaa, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2009

mabjork (673) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2006
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.

Miksu (4948) - 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.
