2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

Can. Clear yellow color with a nice thick head. Aroma has malts, grass and butter.
Opens up nicely but the aftertaste is nasty, grass and metallic.

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.
