2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can BB 19042008. Pours yellow with medium white head. Slightly sweet, grainy and malty aroma. Almost dusty, like the smell of freshly mowed hay. This would do really nice as a may bock with more hop aroma. No DMS or diacetyl. Grainy taste with medium dry, mild aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyable on a hot summer California day. It had that right amount of grassy-lemongrass like character combined with a soft grainy-corny flavor for quick refreshment. Suprisingly bitter up front, it fades somewhat as it warms. Drank it pretty quickly. Thanks to oh6gdx for sending it my way.

By now almost everyone had left to watch the game... Gold body, light malty, grainy nose. Malty taste, some hop bitterness. Ok beer but too light for its own good.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2008 Mildly golden with a tight hat of white froth. Grassy with a twist of lemon over a cookie dough base, all quite fluid and breezy. Sweet pale malts blossom into a scrubbing, herbal bitterness; clinging, cooling aftertaste of grass and menthol. Light, fluffy and slick.
Well composed with an interesting menthol kick.
50 cl can, best before 09 March 2009.
A spongy white head deflates on a bright gold body. Muted cereal grains carry a rounded, earthy note and a touch of pepper. Slick, sweet malts open for a tight bitterness, fading into a clingy finish. Carbonation is gentle but adequate; sticky texture on a fullish body.
Grainy, compressed and a bit bulky; pleasantly bitter lingering aftertaste.
50 cl can, best before 08 January 2009.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned. Clear, pale yellow beer with small white head. Hoppy aroma has citrus fruits , some sweeter fruits and fresh grass. Hops are maybe not the most aromatic but at least there is some. Maly flavor is medium sweet with balancing but a bit metallic bitteration in the finish. Light to medium body and quite oily and smooth texture. I like this beer. Definately one of the best beers that you can find in basic Finnish markets.
