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.

pivo (2561) - GERMANY - SEP 25, 2002
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.

madsberg (10144) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2002
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.

bierkoning (10162) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2002
Only slight malty and fruity aroma. Neutral, fruity taste, a little bit herbal. Slight hopbitter finish with a hint of cardboard. Bland beer.

Neutral aroma. Flawless, uncomplicated, clean-tasting.

Nuffield (3668) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2002
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.
