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).

puszka 0,5. lurka bez żadnego głębszego smaku pozostawiająca po sobie lekki niesmak. Wiedziałem, że piwo z Finlandii to eksperyment i niestety miłej niespodzianki nie było. W wielki upał lepsze na pewno do picia niż coś klejącego i słodkiego ale generalnie na pewno nic, czym się można delektować

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from a Porvoo supermarket. Poured a clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is light malt hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a malt, strong hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I expected more malt and less hop bitterness but it was a pleasant surprise. Drunk cool on a very hot summer day and it certainly hit the mark.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours clear golden in color with a frothy white head. Sweetish notes in aroma. Same sweetish notes in taste, but they take a turn into a slighly bitter way later on.

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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. Medum head with medium duration. Color is pale golden. Aroma and taste are sweet malt, grain and hops. Boring.
