3 years over BBE, but I'll give it a try... The beer starts malty and slightly sweet. A bit grainy. The mainpart is highly drinkable, a bit malty-grainy, subtle sweetness. Nearly no hops. The aftertaste is medium, a bit neutral, ok. --> typical Lager. --> 7/13/7/7

Thanks to errzengel for sharing! Pours a hazy medium yellow. The smell is mild malt, some light fruit. The taste is as it smells with a light hop finish and some dryness. Light in body with average carbonation.

Peruslälly. Jääkylmänä saunan jälkeen. Ei tule ostettua jos itse saa valita. Liian lötkö.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Got this one for free. Golden yellow beer with a white head disappearing fast. Aroma has unpleasant sweet maize or stach. Flavor is surprisingly good, grainy malty and honey sweet. Crips bitterness, pretty refreshing taste. Little waterness, short finish, thin mouthfeel, high carbonation. Surprisingly good for a Finnish bulk lager. When I used to drink bulk lagers, I never bought this for a reason or another. Now it seems like the best of the bunch. Makes sense?

Draft @ hotel bar. Pours much darker than I prefer my pale lagers. Nice persistent white head and moderate lacing. Grainy, cereal aroma. Sweet, very cereal taste. A bit overly sweet.

Draught@j.l.runeberg, served in proper glassware (disposable plastic pint). Smooth, neutral lager. An unoffending soup of round goldy malt- like flavours. Light, with a bulk character. Luckily it doesn’t have much of some awful metallic or damp-hoppy notes that some finnish bulks try to stand out with. Neutral, bland, which is a good thing this time.

Bottle 0.33l from local market. Originally rated too many times between 2000-2003. Colour is clear golden with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Grain and malts. Easy to drink so what else could young student drink those days?
