Come on snobies. This is a sincere beer for sincere thurst. It is just not for sipping but killing the thurst. However hint of cloudberry and dry hay make very drinkable entity.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear golden color with high quickly vanishing head. Aroma is grainy. Clear taste, but quite waterish. Short finish. Nothing special, but drinkable.

Ihan perus olutta tämä Olvi. Aika laihaa kumminkin, jos vertaa erim Karhuun tai jopa Karjalaan.

Can from local market. Unfortunately I have drunk this too many times between years 1997-2011. One of the worst finnish pale lagers.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
0.568 can. Pale gold color and a big, creamy, white head on top. Aroma of starch, hops and a small touch of malts. Faint flavors of hops and malts blended in a uniform, insipid mixture. Medium body, thin texture and soft carbonation. Finish is short and just as tasteless. Overall the beer is very feeble and trite; nothing to describe.

Varsin kevyt, miltei vetinen ja hyvin samankaltainen Olvi III:n kanssa. Tylsä ja mielenkiinnoton. Makua hakeville löytyy parempiakin. Toisaalta vetisestä mausta pitäville Olvin III on halvempaa.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
0,568L can(s) imported from K-market Kilpisjärvi, Finland.
Golden pint can:
Faint hoppy scents with a vague hint of something sulphuric.
White bubbly head on the straw yellow body, towards a little light brown. Head leaves some lacing inside the dimpled mug.
Taste of hops, grain, bread, cardboard, leaves from cloudberry.
Mouthfeel alright, and not much watery. Aftertaste much malts,
grain, leaves, cardboard, malty bread. Overall a decent lager.
White pint can "Halko"; same scents, head, and colour. Lower carbonation. Feels milder and more watery than "Olvi III".

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2013 Golden to orange clear beer with little head disappearing fast with no lacing on the glass. Aroma and taste is mostly starchy, slightly sweet malty. The beer is pretty watery thin and there’s no hops to speak of. This beer is not enjoyable by any means except maybe for getting drunk cheap.
