Canned. Golden colour, mediumsized white fluffy head. Aroma is malts, mild grains, quite floral with some mild starchlike sweetness. Flavour is fruity and floral with some mild bready notes. Interestingly enough my first thoughts for the fruity and floral notes is Fuggles mixed with Saaz (made the way Williams Bros did it in the Hop Quiz). After the two Lapin Kulta Arctic Malts’ this one is rather pleasant and tasty. I suppose this could be my thirst quencher beer this summer, if nothing more exciting comes from the macros.

Can pint (K-market Siltapuisto, BB 11/2012)
Clear golden color, small white head. Grainy and metallic aroma. Light bodied. Metal, sweetish maltyness, watery finish. Harsh with low bitterness. If possible, even more boring than normal Olvi III.

FatPhil (13312) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 11, 2012
568ml can (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Smells like Olvi III. Pale and fizzy. A touch watery and fizzy. Retronasals do have some spicy, almost needley, hops, which stay for the finish. Mostly clean, but there’s some hint of a strange medicinal antiseptic aspect to the taste that stops me from giving it a 5. Better than their usual muck, closer to their Estonian recipes.
