VastActiv (5402) - Oulu/Helsinki, - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle 0.33l from Pendolino, train. Colour is golden with small white head. Aromas and flavours are metal, grass and malts. Pretty fresh but otherwise just horrible.

thellgren (712) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2016
0.33 l bottle as Premium Export @ Viking Xpress ferryboat (Helsinki-Tallinn). Quite pale with a decent head. Taste is quite mellow, similarly to Heineken or Carlsberg. At least alcohol didn’t taste too much in this stronger variant. Quite OK with some food. I’d still opt for something else when in need of lager.

DraftDodger (932) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2016
Copenhagen 26/5 2016. 33 cl can from Helsinki Airport. Dark blue can with characteristic red star. Pours clear yellow with white head. Head disappears fairly fast leaving lonesome patches of foam drifting around. Aroma of sweet malts and grain and corn. Maybe a touch of black pepper. Prickly carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is on the sweet side. Only very light bitterness. Nice red star but uninspiring beer.

bartlebier (3250) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 4, 2016
33cl bb11/2017, (BL sampler 1). - Light beige golden pour, mirage foam. Bref: Virtually odourless Weihnachtsstollen diluted in rainwater. - Drinks hop-less and malt-forward like an old school, filtered and pasteurised honeysweet Export brewed for that international "smooth"ness of flavour. Slick mouthfeel, saliva onset on white bread or sandwiches. Somehow reticent, to yield to the urge to describe every nation’s international lager with a character national trait.

Simple, light and easy to drink Lager. Good to have dinner with as it has little taste itself. Not much else to say.

33cl can at home from Tina as a gift, many thanks! Body is clear fizzy pale, head is small, white, fizzy, fully diminishing, no lacing. Nose is light malty, flavor is ice tea, watery, light malty, light honey. Medium sweet, light citric sour. Finish is short lasting light sweet. Light body, thin texture, fizzy carbonation. Easy, refreshing, bitterness is not really noticeable, artificial ice tea.

corkyrory66 (1266) - BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2015
Premium lager bier sous la nature pure de l’étoile du Nord !! Niveau abv de 5,2 % pour sa version export, elle comprend du Golden Malt. Signalons l’antériorité de 1873. Couleur blond sombre virant à l’ambre clair, à la clarté nette. Bulles moyennes, partout, vives. Mousse banc cassé, nappage crémeux à 2 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, houblon, pointe de maïs, pointe de sucre, raisin vert. 1ère bouche souple sur du malt à l’étal, houblon. Arrière-bouche très courte. 2ème avec toujours le malt, dont on peut croire qu’il est de variété gold, mais il n’y a pas grand chose d’autre … Longueur qui descend dans l’ensemble, mais garde le côté malté. Jambes fines, groupées, légèrement collantes. Alcool correct, mais que peut-il faire ? Finale bon enfant. CONCLUSION : on ira voir l’étoile du Nord pour autre chose que le lapin Kulta (qui n’est pas très culte) … mais peut-être pour le lapon Kulto qui a un beau Golden malt dans son pré glacé … Je m’égare ...
