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.

Nothing particularly slinky about this beer but nothing tasty about it either. Another plain pale lager.

Flaschenbier. Ziemlich süffig und recht ausgewogen im Geschmack. Schmeckt irgendwie ganz nett, haut mich aber nicht von den Socken.

Nurmis (227) - Oulu, 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.

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 (540) - 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 (374) - Cheltenham, 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.

DrNosha (1398) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 15, 2015
flasche und vom Fass in Helsinki. Hellgelb mit schönem weissem Schaum, zumindest vom Fass. Einseitig herbes Aroma. Säuerlich im Antrunk, trocken ohne Frucht. Nicht mein Fall.

Turtles (1561) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2015
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear bright golden, white medium size white head, good lacing. Faint sweet malt aroma, bread, canned corn. Medium carbonated, light watery mouthfeel. Taste lacks bitterness, sweet bread. Not much going on here.
