Rastacouere (6126) - 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 (9467) - 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

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2008
It is golden with a huge, white head. The aroma has notes of fruit, spice and malt. The flavour is fruity with notes of malt, spice and a dry bitterness. It ends dry with a slightly spicy and bitter bite. It is interesting and surprising.

rlgk (10311) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2008
Pale golden, small white head. Fruity, hoppy and somewhat spicy aroma. Bready flavor, quite metallic and with some spices. Quite nice actually.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - SEP 22, 2008

TET (1621) - FINLAND - SEP 19, 2008
Light yellow beer with thin white head. Aroma is quite refreshning and there are found spring grain field and some grass and hops. Flavour is pure malty with medium hoppiness but slightly bitter "Kukko" -style. Airy to drink and carbonation is balanced. Kukko Pils is classic, quite fresh, average beer but still it gives positive feelings for me.
