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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Crystal clear orange beer with a foamy white head. Simple lager aroma. A bit sweet, simple, some cooked vegetables and a hint of metal. No bitterness whatsoever. Soft mouth feel. Nothing special and won’t buy it again. The "original recipe" kinda sucks. Bland but not utterly horrible though. Drinkable.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Light golden, small and fully diminishing head. Light, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, faint hoppyness. Body is light, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, light metal. Finish is short, malty – lightly grainy, some sharp metal. Flavor/finish lacks bitterness. Tastes cheap.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pint can from supremarket in Kotka, pale gold colour, small quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is cereal and hay with some notes of grass mainly on the nose, light body, taste is well on the sweet side, considering the lack of maltiness in the aroma, abrupt slightly bitter and starchy finish. I suppose they went even more overboard with the starch than usually in the bulk stuff here, quite bad even on the lager scale. Barely could finish it.
