0.5 l can from supermarkets. Nice pils with lots of hops. Goes well with herring.

bogdi1 (32) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2005
Pale golden colored with fairly quickly dissipating, typical pils-white head. Delicious and sharp grassy hop aroma. Clean, hoppy flavor with light malty backbone and bitter finish. Medium carbonation. Well balanced, refreshing beer and a solid interpretation of pilsner style.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2003
Grassy aroma and yeasty malt flavor. Bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. A true pils. Excellent for what I expected to be a bland, flavorless, indistinguishable American Standard. This is noticeably different from other Finnish lagers, but it's a subtle distinction. Give this one a chance.

tlind2 (1132) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2009 0,5 l can. Clear golden color, big white head. Sweet, lightly floral aroma. Taste is sweet malts and hops, with more bitterness than I’d expected. The bitter aftertaste lingers pleasantly. Beats the hell out of Finnish mass-market beers, at least. Rerate: pushing up the rating, because Kukko Pils is one of the few good pilseners available in Finland at a reasonable price. And it doesn’t suffer from the same grassiness as Laitila’s Kukko Lager.

estpiwo (1278) - ESTONIA - JUN 11, 2010
Canned. Golden color, rich foam. Grassy aroma. Hoppy, strong hoppy flavor. Nice bitter aftertaste. Good.

omhper (19378) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2002
Golden coloured. Grassy hop aroma. Dry and salty with rather bitter finish. Plain but well made and refreshing.

brunnsbe (75) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2007 True pilsner aroma, the taste seems to differ a little for every batch. Strong hoppy, fruity aroma. One of the best industrial beers in Finland.

berkshirejohn (4531) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2007
500ml can. Straw with a white head; pleasant fruity hop aroma; quite bready body with a strongly hopped dry finish, almost salty and very moreish.

Bov (9492) - 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

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2004
Nice pilsner aroma, bright yellow color with little foam. Average body with crispy hops and comfortable carbonation make this beer to be nice experience. As I’m Finnish, I must say that this beer is my "sauna-beer", perfect for that purpose, specially when drunk from can.
