I’m sure this is a good "getting piss drunk before the hockey match" type beer, but I just found it dreadful. Industrial, it tasted machinery and blood (metal). Avoid!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can 33cl. Apple-ish aroma, plus malts.
Pours one finger off white head, clear golden body.
Tastes malt, grass, apple, fresh, ok balance, decent bitter under it all.
Normal and easy to drink. Finishes with malt, mild bitterness, apple again, white bread.
Overall good, better than most pale lagers. To me, this was as premium lager. (B@Alko Tornio Finland, enjoyed@hotel room Luleĺ Sweden Feb7th2014)

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
33 cl bottle @ Atala, BBE 07.08.2014. Rated on 25.12.2013
Aroma has straw, sweet grainy notes and corn. Flavour has straw, hay, sweetish grain and starch. Empty finish and at the end of the glass straw notes disturb more. Nothing more than Olvi III. At least this is a bit refreshing. The picture reminds me of boat trips over 10 years ago.

Pale golden in color with a very fast disappearing whitish head. Sweet malty, light notes of butter and slightly fruity in aroma. Grains in taste, sweet malty notes as well.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle, clear golden colour with a tiny white head. Aroma of cereal, fruit and grass, taste is slightly malty. Finish is sweetish with some bitterness and a hint of starch lingering in the mouth, medium body, lively carbonation. Not as bad as I remembered and certainly better than the supermarket strength one, but still underhopped and very boring
