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

drpimento (2180) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Had this on the train from Helsinki to Rovaniemi a few weeks ago. Served with a small, fine, white head that lasts and a little lace. Color was a clear, deep yellow with bubble trails. Aroma was beery, hop, grain, malt. Flavor was similar to nose with good bittersweet and tang balance. Good body and carbonation. Finish was similar to flavor and of about average length. Servicable beer.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2007 I’m not pilsner or lager drinker but if I do I like the light ones. And this one isn’t bad. Flowers and perfume in the aroma. Golden colour, average large frothy white head, nice lacing. Sweet for a lager, sparkling, malty, bit watery however. Short maltsweet finish.

Very nice, interesting flavor, very refreshing, but I wonder why the Finnish drink this beer in winter.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2009
From Bootlegger, Paris. Poureda colour of rich, clear copper capped by a small white yet resilient head. Faint but clean aroma. Taste was a touch of sweetness as did the finish (sorry ’bout that one!). Average mouthfeel. Pretty good for a lager.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Das Aroma dieses Bieres ist nicht gerade augeprägt, man kann es als sehr mild einstufen. Das lasche Aroma lässt sich enfach zusammenfassen: getreidig. Dieser Geschmack hält allerdings ungewöhnlich lange an, so dass der Nachgeschmack als + gewertet werden kann. Test vom 16.11.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,9,11,11,12,11 - 10,95

DutchDrebus (3876) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2011
Gushed when opened. Regular yellow pils colour with a fluffy white head. Smells grainy, malty, not a lot of smell. Tastes very grainy, soft and cheap, but it’s a nice change for once. Soft mouthfeel, nice carbo, thin body. Not a great beer, but it’s quite drinkable.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2007
Very similar to the III version of the beer, they probably brew them to one strength and then dilute as appropriate. Decent balance between hops and malt, refreshing dry finish.

Clear golden color with a nice head, slightly lacing. Smell and taste pretty average. Low body and carbo.
