Kaksi suomalaista ovat lyöneet hynttyyt yhteen! Olvi valmistaa Reino & Aino Kotikenkä Oy:n kanssa OLVI Reino-oluen. OLVI Reino on täyteläinen, vaalea lager-olut, jossa on hieno häivähdys katajaista aromihumala.

Migmar (255) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2012
Bought this because of the nice-looking can, based on the pattern of traditional Finnish old geezers’ slippers. Had no expectations for the beer itself, being a bulk lager. Had some flavour though, some synthetic sweetness but basically bland.

Beerheart65 (1368) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2012 Light aroma has corn. Some juniper maybe also. Would I have noticed it if I had not known it was supposed.to be there? Clear and golden. Short head. Slightly bitter. More juniper in taste than in aroma and corn stays in background. Bit one sided. Thin and dry, medium carbonation. Not that interesting. Most interesting thing bout this beer is that it is a collaboration between brewery and sandal factory. Famous finnish Reino-sandals have the same checkerboard as this can has. Maybe bit same flavor also (joking).

Nothing more than regular Olvi III in a different can. Totally useless "new" beer.

mile (3771) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2012
Can. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, faint hoppyness. Body is light to moderate, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, some metal. Finish is short, malty and lightly sweetish, some sharp metal, faint hoppyness. Watery "keppana" with sharp metal in the flavor/finish.

568 ml can. Pours clear golden with small to medium white fluffy head. Aroma of malt, grassy hops and grain. Taste has plenty of maize but also some bready malt. Low carbonation. Watery mouthfeel and light bodied. Actually quite good and refreshing pale lager. Slightly better but still very typical Olvi beer.

Rune (10906) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 20, 2012
Pint, 568ml can provided by Finn. Noisy pour that reveals a chalk white head, some of it remaining. Bright golden body. Notes of pale malts and sweet fruits in the distant aroma. Sweet malty taste with mild fruits. Clean in the mouth, a bit crispy and soft. Passable and alright with our Easter food (shared with Frau Eva, Tromsø, 07.04.2012).
