Finwe (392) - Grankulla, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2010
500 ml can from Lidl. Pours pale golden yellow with foamy white head. Clear, even a bit watery appearance. Grassy, hoppy aroma. Grassy, bitter hops in the flavour, too. Some grainy kind of sweetness also present. Quite high carbonation. Dry, bitter aftertaste. Feels a bit thin in the mouth.

0,5l can as pictured. Grain and hops in the aroma.Typical golden colour with dissapearing white head. Also very grainy taste with a dry hoppy end. Medium body. Nice Finnish Pils from Laitila, made with wind electricity. ;)

rosenbergh (6086) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2009
500 ml can. Finland. Clear golden colour with medium-size white head. Grainy malty aroma with some hay and cereal too. Flavour is also grainy malty and grassy but also vegetables and some light bitterness. Very drinkable.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2009
Clear atomically bright golden lager topped by a fair white cover. Timid floral hops are not quite a match for the cerealic, slightly vegetal, relatively dense malt profile. Sweet in mouth whereas I prefer drier pilsners, but the slight metallic notes I perceived in the aroma are not transmitted over the palate. On the other hand, the sweetness is harsh, though it gives it a fairly round mouthfeel. Surprising amount of grassy hop bitterness in the finish does not quite manage to slice through the sweetness, but is welcome nevertheless, leading towards the next sip. Biting carbonation, fizzy.

MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - APR 25, 2009
The stronger version is slightly better but this is a decent pils too if not particularly distinct or anything.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 8, 2009
canned; courtesy of oh6gdx - pale golden colour with a little but persistent foam, correct lacing; solid herbal aroma with notes of oily hops and almonds; medium-bodied with some sweetness before a decent herbal bitterness, slightly oily; quite dry and long grassy aftertaste - very drinkable
