330 ml bottle. Pours clear light orange with a medium white head. Lager aroma with malt notes. Stringent taste, mild sour bitter palate. Not good.

12oz bottle. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Your standard pale lager. Nothing special here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MattiasA (622) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2014
Backlog. Tried it bottled and on tap a number of times. Just your standard mass-produced lager, not as good as it’s main competitor Karhu if you ask me.

MrW (367) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle in a après-ski pub. Fresh aroma, apple, orange peel, hoppy. Pours clear blond, white fading head, light sparkling. Taste is apple, light bitter, a little bit grain, sweet, orange peal. Fruity rich finish, balanced bitter. This was a good finish of our skiweek. Got a bit off-tasting when it warmed...

På flaska @ Cindirella. Ljusgul färg utan skum. Svag lukt av kemikalier typ toa rent. smakar inte bättre än den luktar

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Tap@Cinderella. Gyllengul vätska utan skum. Jolmigt söt doft. Jolmen återkommer i smaken där den även blandas ut med utsökt arom av kemisk toalett. Nää, detta är inget man ens vill hota sin värsta ovän med.

BrianWillum (177) - København S., DENMARK - MAR 4, 2014
Served on can under the alias: "Lapin Kulta Export" Orange, transparant beer with no head. Sweet but otherwise boring odour. Taste is waterish but not metallic, maybe with hints of caramel. Aftertaste has a good balance, not too sweet. Very boring.

JimmyBoy74 (112) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2014
33 cl burk systembolaget. Ljus blaskig färg. Svag doft av, källararomer. Smakar knappt något. Helt oförståeligt hur folk kan dricka skiten!

minutemat (890) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
330ml can. When I first drove to Finland aged 22, I bought a crate of this stuff and although it was a touch sweet and unoriginal, it still tasted amazing to my young tastebuds, just because it was Finnish. Nowadays, it still tastes pretty boring but will always remind of those days.

Mr_Pink_152 (293) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2014
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden colour, with a medium white head that disappeared quickly. Slight Malt caramel aroma, with a light body. Not much carbonation. Not at bad larger for its type

Pours yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, grass and herbs. Taste is light sweet leading to a light hoppy finish. OK
