spporras (259) - FINLAND - AUG 22, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2007 (Can BB 11/01/08) Malty, grainy and grass-hoppy aroma. Golden colour, very slightly hazy and small, white head with fair lacing. Malty, grainy, slightly bitter and slightly grassy flavour. Softly carbonated and medium-bodied palate. This is actually one of my favourite Finnish beers! 25/07/07

Papsoe (25079) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2006
(Can 50 cl) Clear pilsener golden with a white head. A whiff of malt in the nose. Light-bodieed with odd notes of vegetables and....well, I don’t really know what, but it for sure ain’t pleasant. Completely unclean and flawed. No bitterness. I’m lost for words on this one - but horrible describes it quite well. 240706

Dorqui (2115) - Brescia, ITALY - FEB 4, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Shining yellow color, good fizz and duration. Enough compact and resistant foam even if much friable. Enough simple scent with clearly malty and straw notes. Unusual taste, sweetish with notes of honey and candy. Hoppynes final with a lot modest alcoholic tone. Uncommon pils.
Thanks to mabjork for this beer.

mabjork (674) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2006
Canned. A pale golden colour, white head, lacings. It has an aroma that is hoppy and grassy. The flavour is grassy with hints of hops. A bittery aftertaste but not all that distinct.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2005
Canned. Clear golden colour, with small, foamy, white head. Sweetish, slightly yeasty aroma, with lots of grassy hops. Light carbonation, smooth palate, medium bodied. Flavour mainly of grassy hops, with dry, bitter finish. Not bad for a finnish pils! Best enjoyed in small sips, to keep the bitter at bay.

The aroma is not as bad as it good be as a pils... Yellow with thin head and some lace. Very simple taste with a little apple in it.

ClarkVV (3893) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 7, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2005 2005 can thanks to Juha!! Pours a honey-gold yellow. Medium-sized bubbles rise quite lazily to the top to form a whispy white head, that is not long retained, but fades to a ring of foam. Clear. Good lacing. Smells of light honey, grain husks. No yeast, not really much hops. Flavor, though, I did enjoy. Laitilan seems to make pleasant and simple beers and that can hit the spot at the right time. Pils malt and herbs, with a touch of tin and dough (that’s an odd combination, yes). A full swig yields significantly more bitterness than a small sip, though it’s quickly overtaken by doughy honey malt, though there is a reprise of light grass clippings on the finish. Medium body, moderate wateriness, little to no yeast apparency, though some light crispness on the finish. Soft carbonation, maybe even too little of it. Lovely retronasal hops, grassy and bitter!

Strangely parfumed aroma and slightly sour from malts. This is more a Helles than a Pils, in my world. Minimum aftertaste. Boring.
