Rich straw colour, tiny tight head. Served cold, very little aroma. Fizzy in the mouth, a bit harsh. Simple bready malts, some gingery hops, but has been emasculated by filtering. Would benefit from a thicker body. Quite like Plevna Tahti III. 4:2:5:2:9=2.2
Rerate: Summer 2010, where Koulu’s cellar is at a warmer temperature - 6:3:6:3:12=3.2
A touch of sourness on the nose, but the palate is full. Really benefits from the increased temperature, there’s a lot more going on here than when cold. A real fresh lager, lovely.

gnoff (7975) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2007
(1 liter bottle, thanks Marsiblursi!) Shady apricot color, small white head. Citrus, dishwater, ammonia, lemon, grainy scent. Also sweet mustard and raspberry lemonade. Grainy sweet a bit metallic taste. Thin yet spritzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.

Clear golden colour with small white head. Malt and hay in aroma. Mild flavour with some malt, grain and notes of hay. Doesn’t stand out.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2006
Draught at Koulu. Deep golden color with small head. Fresh and sweet malt in the aroma. Very good fresh and aromatic maltiness in the flavor, but too sweet and a bit sticky.
