2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Another 500ml can from Finn, thanks. Shared with Finn Arvid. Plain straw-golden body. Frothy, white head, rings of lacing down the glass. Grassy aroma, as well as some grainy hints. Dry fruity taste with notes of cardboard. Distant malt bitter endnotes. A bit strait-laced on the swallow. Possible to drink (Tromsø, 22.09.2012).

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Really dull and useless beer. More like a regular Finnish bulk lager than pilsener at all.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pouring out the head is nice and white but crashes down and in less than 2 minutes is completely gone. Color well its allright golden and what it should be. Thats probably the only disdinctive property of a Pils. No smell of Saaz hops to my nose rather some kind of a sweet maybe honey or little malty notes. Tastes like regular premium lager and regular amount of bitterness hops for Finnish mass production (that means almost no hops). Maybe IBU 12-15. Aftertaste is like a flat beer with no character. Conclusion. Dont even try it. Maybe in 6 months when they are still on the shelves you can buy with dicount to throw it on the heater in the sauna to get malty aroma.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Golden body, medium to small head. Aroma has fizzy CO2 and hints of malt. Taste has a touch more of metallic hops than the regular Lapin Kulta, otherwise it’s the same yellow fizzy beer. I don’t see this as a Pilsener. I guess it’s true what they say about this beer...

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow, small white head that disappears immediately. Nose is corn, malt, some hop hints. Taste is malt, corn, sweet notes, water. Finish is corn, vague industrial bitterness. Not offensive, I suppose it’s okay for chugging. And the bottle cap was nice, had a compass and everything.

0.35L bottle. Regular pale hop aroma. Hop, malt, corn and water flavors. Light bitter finish. Not just superb, but....sometimes maybe.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
350ml bottle. Pale yellow color. Tiny to almost no head. Malty, corny aroma. Just plain watery malty brew. Blehh.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
35cl bottle. Refreshing, resembles pilsener, looks pale and has typical aroma. Watery and thin. But the advertisement says it is Finnish to the bone - this beer is worth a try only because of that.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.35 bottle. Pours a pale, gold liquid with a medium, white, quite creamy head. Typical hop aroma with some pale malts, grain and hay. Malty taste, mostly corn, grain and hay; rather sweet and standard though not bad. Medium body, slightly creamy texture and soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and a tad less sweet than the taste but features the same flavors. Overall the beer is not bad for a pils, gives the impression of some quality at least unlike most others.
