Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
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!

djoeye (1507) - Tromsř, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2014
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.

laiti (5695) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2013
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.

RexTalionis (2437) - FINLAND - NOV 7, 2013
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.

Zarkam (422) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2013
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

VastActiv (2846) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle 0.33l from local Alko. BBE 13/10/2013. Colour is clear golden with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Grain, sweetness and malts. Horrible.

Sladké jako cecek, bledé, jinak nevýrazné. Moje první finské pivo. Plech v letadle do Helsinek.

Leini (776) - SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2013
330ml can. Golden colour, white head. Malty and sweet, with a grainy touch. Not too bad, but not too good either.
