Draft at Oluthuone Kaisla in Helsinki.
Lightly hazed gold body with a short white head. Bit of a sweaty odor with touches of yeast powder / drywall and little to no hop aroma. Twangy corn syrup pale malt flavor with some apple and prear esters. As it opens some sourness becomes apparent. Medium-light body, lightly sweet, husky and grainy and papery and powdery and musty. Neutral hop bitterness. DMS / cooked corn noticed once it opens. Poorly put together.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml can from Einotekis, Finland. Shared at Back to School Beer Session 22.Aug.2011. Organic and green, which is mirrored in the design. Still, what looks like two sami people next to a haystack(?) is quite peculiar. Pours a hazy golden body with foamy head, that rapidly diminishes. Sweet fruity aroma, straw and hint of citrus and celery. Grass, honey with hint of tobacco, clove and citrus in taste. Dry finish! It’s looks, tastes and feels very organic and green.

Smell of malts. Hazy amber colour, yellow head. Aroma of malts, grain, a faint of metal. Some apple-like sourness to be noted in addition to a light bitterness.

Nice, fresh and fruity but nothing too exciting. Should work well on warm days or as a sauna beer.
