Nurmis (103) - FINLAND - JAN 18, 2016
33cl can from supermarket. Pours with medium white head, clear golden colour. Aroma is malty bread with light grassy hops. Taste is light bitterness. There is nice smoothness bitter in finish, that can be enjoyed. Ok for bulk lager.

BenWesthof (195) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2016
Fresh Finnish lager. It has been a long time since I had it (and this is a backlog), but from what I remember it wasn’t anything outstanding, just fine.

Gubihumle (501) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2015
Farven er gyldengul og skumkronen er hvid. Dominerende er den maltede smag. Ellers er der ikke meget at sige om denne øl.

LazyPyro (223) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden orange colour, small and rapidly disappearing white head, but nice lacing. Malty, hoppy, grassy aroma and taste. Light feel to it, light bitter aftertaste. Watery texture. Drinkable but nothing special.

Cimbasso (558) - - SEP 8, 2015
Golden colour with a white head. Little aroma, but the taste is better. Light malts and some floral notes. Lacking in bitterness, as if the brewers have skimped on ingredients such as hops. Not a bad beer for summer refreshment.
