A regular lager to go along with a meal with friends. Not much to point out on a rather simple beer.

Senka (808) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2015
I love it on tap. I called distributor to find out where they sell that in Estonia for example, and they told me that this is highly confidential. Anyways, it is good on tap when not in FI (money-wise - I was asked 5 and 8 Eur for 1/2L). A good lager, and a stable quality.

jice (148) - Grenoble, FRANCE - DEC 24, 2014
Export. petit col de mousse persistent, goût assez neutre mais rafraichissante cela dit. Pas désagrèable, pour la curiosité, mais même une Kro est plus goûtue.

Drank as a draught. Not very tasty, not good at all. Maybe a bit better than the old version.

mkel07 (3921) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle from Casablanca Brasserie 241014. There’s not a lot going on with this beer and not a lot of nice things to say about it.. Grain aroma adds to the overall unpleasantness, along with the pale amber colour, thin whit head and flavour that you can take or leave. I haven’t seen many beers from Finland and now I know why.

Golden color, clear; white head; lasting white layer - Aroma of malt, grains, grassy hops - sweet taste, very light bitterness - light body, thin texture, soft to average carbonation - short, sweet, grassy finish.
