2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Minimal head if no head at all. For a pils this looks quite opaque. A little sweet, fruity, hoppy smell but not much of aroma in general. Dominant malty taste. Could have more hops for my taste. Not bad.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml from Alko Hetta. In spite of the predominance of Finnish genes in me, I haven’t developed a taste for Finnish beer. Yellow body, sour aroma and a taste of rubber, hops and banana, with protruding alcohol. Reminds of old swimming cap or plastic bag...(10. March 2011 at XIII Rating Session)

Pours golden with a medium sized white head. Malty raisins and a buttery aroma with faint herbal hops in background. Malty and bitter with stingy carbonation. Rather long lasting finish but with a canny of flavor.

Rerate: Poured into a footer, gold with a dish soap head. Aroma: Grainy malt, hops, herbs, mild metallic notes. Taste: Medium sweet, mild bitter. Palate: Medium-low body, average carbonation. Actually, think I like the III version overall much better. Harder to get flavours than in III. (+1 overall)
