2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A yellow beer with a small head. The aroma is slightly sour as if it contains brewing cereal. The flavor is fresh and prickling with a hint of sourness and ending in a slight but nice bitterness. A pretty refreshing beer, but nothing special.

Light golden yellow, white fast diminishing head, no lace. Quite light nose with sligtly flowery from hops. Light, neutral, some bitter, quite smooth. Aftertaste a bit more bitter. An average Finnish golden lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Weak nose of light malt and a dust. Decent gold color and a nice head. Fruity, almost like an ale, but a little buttery taste too. Dry, fizzy end. Cream mouth feel and overall light. Is this a Kölsch? Tastes like one. OK balance, but nothing special here.

Mmh, interesting. Hoppy aroma, also malt, cereals and...yeast. Golden body with a little head. Sweet corn and hoppy flavor but not unpleasant. Short bitter finish, when watery. Tastes a bit like Kölsch as pivo and I spoked out at the same time.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2003 Very light yellow. Nice head. No aroma to talk about, and the flavour is quite waterish. A beer to drink and forget.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pretty miserable in my opinion. Having a bad lager with spicy food (e.g., Kingfisher = Indian, Almaza = kebab) is fine. But this is a ’Lapland’ beer--surely they should be making warming stouts? Terrible head, terrible spicy flavor, and worst of all, a terrible palate. At least some bad lagers/Am. standards have good long-lasting carbonation and a vibrant feel in the mouth. This was dead and bad tasting.

Very drinkable beer. Some people say that this tastes like reindeers piss, but I certainly disagree. Good with food and as such.
