Nothing unpleasant, nothing to remember. Can’t understand why this kind of beer is made to celebrate the brewery’s birthday?

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(5,2 ABV version, 0,33l can, best before 5 Dec 2014) Pours clear golden with white fizzy head. Aroma is sweetish and malty, just a hint of hops in the background. Smooth and malty taste, very moderate bitterness. Lively carbonation. Very simple basic lager.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Boks 0,5l fra Kilpishalli. Veldig lys gylden. Litt skum som daler raskt. Aroma av malt & litt metall. Ekstremt vassen på smak.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml can (VR Station Siwa, Tampere)
Sweet pale and boring aroma. Even more so in the mouth. A touch starchy. Terminally boring. Beer for people who don’t want a beer. Hmmm, my previous beer was an Olvi-produced Eldorado lager, and that tasted *absolutely identical* to this.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Canned, thanks oh6gdx! Clear golden, brief head. Sugary nose with some overripe fruit. Very sweet with light to medium body and clean mouthfeel. Sugar, garbage and rotting fruit. Low bitterness. Terrible.

Pint can b@Kilpishalli, abv4.5%.
Disappearing head. Pale clear yellow body.
Sweet grassy scents. Tastes sweet grass, grains, mild hops, slight hint of old milk.
Alright to palate, that’s it. Ok carbo. Overall easy-drinkable mainstream pale.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
One pint, 568ml, in a can, from Finn, thanks. Crystal clear, pale yellow body. Tiny, white layer. Noisy pour, no lacing. Moderate grassy nose, sweet. Mild grainy taste with vague hints of grassy hops. Mid-sweet fruity ending, short lived. Thin to medium bodied. Soft carbonated. Clean in the mouth. In-offensive, mainstream lager (Tromsø 02.01.2013).

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can pint. Pale yellow color, small white head. Sweetish corn and metal in the nose. Light-bodied. Typical Olvi, "soft palate" with sweetish corn, metal and low bitterness. Very similar to Sandels and other Olvi IIIs.
