KansaiBeerLvrs (1342) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 7, 2013
5.5% about 2euro from Alko, almost nothing is sold their cold... Boulevard & Alesmith bombers but 20 euros a pop! Mellow gold color, grain, hay aroma. The taste is a rough, cheap lager. Mostly malty sweet, a touch of bitterness in the finish. I don’t see this as a pilsner just an average macro lager.

I think the lighter version is better, this version has more metallic aroma.

RexTalionis (2133) - FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
Pours clear pale golden in color with a creamy white head. A bit of malts, some hay and vegetables in aroma. Sweet, metallic and vegetable notes in taste. Unpleasant.

Oakrock (99) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 15, 2013
Not bad at all taste. Taste pretty much good quality pilsener. Nice, original taste of quality hops. No side-tastes - simply easy and straight product. not bad at all.

Juseq (158) - FINLAND - DEC 26, 2012
Can from Alko, BBE 22102012. Pours clear light golden with a white head that fades fast. Malty aroma with some grassy hops. Taste is malty with nice grassy hops. Mouthfeel is thin and weirdly fluffy. Aftertaste has nice bitterness at first but after tasting a little the bitterness turns metallic and tastes disgustingly like medicine (pills). This could have been great, being otherwise decent.

Can from Alko. Golden color, white head. Malty taste with citrus, grass and toast. Malty finish. Ok pils.
