1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draught, served warm @ Viking Isabella buffet, a classic! Clear golden, thick white head. Mild, malty and mineral "aroma". Flavor slightly buttery malts, some alcohol, overall somehow stuffy. Very little hops or bitterness. Easy drinking rubbish.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Medium high fluffy white lasting head. Clear golden body. I guess the beer has some aroma, sorry I cannot smell it here in my kitchen surrounded by various spices. I would not have guessed that the beer had such a "high" alcohol percentage. To me this beer is very watery, anonymous. Low carbonation, short aftertaste. Will quickly be forgotten.

A standard lager with not a lot of taste, but smooth enough. Fairly drinkable - not bad.

Bottle strangely enough at curry house in Oulu. Just a standard pale lager but tasted refreshing with spicy food.

In summary - odourless, tasteless, rubbish. Sorry, I love Finland, but I can’t say anything positive about this beer. It’s not actually bad, it’s just not in any way good. If you think it’s a clean taste, that’s disinfectant.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Frothy medium head. Pale brown body. Thin aroma of bitter hops and a tad malty. Pleasant flavour, well balanced bitterness and sweetness. Has a special hint of something undefined. Maybe it is the great taste of Lapland? Best enjoyed straight from the bottle. This beer is a good old classic for me, and I really enjoy it every time I get it on bottle. (Filipstad, 19.07.07)
