adamnase (135) - Kronoby, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2012
Can, Pint (0,568 litres). Pours golden colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of malts, some grains and something "sweetish". Flavour of bread, malts and sweet. Medium bodied and nice taste, better than expected

Hermod (3460) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2013
Pint can, rated on 25.1.2013. Poured golden color, lasting white head. Sweetish malty, typical pale lager aroma overall. Flavor is surprisingly good, floral, some fruity hoppyness, light sweet maltyness. Smooth mouthfeel. very light bitter finish. Could buy this again.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2012
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.

56.8 cL can. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is grassy and light cornish. Toasted malty and light grassy. Bitter, toasted malty finish.

lusikka (6575) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2012
568 ml can. BBE 08.11.2012.
Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma of grassy hops, sweetish grainy malts and some fainted floral notes. Flavour of sweetish pale malts, bitter grassy hops and some floral notes again. Surprisingly strong fruitiness for a pale lager. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a weak malty finish with some bitterness. Not nearly as bad as I expected. Nice after sauna beer. Top-10 pale lager for me, it seems.

MikeKeller (899) - Kemi, FINLAND - APR 13, 2012
Can. Olvi Reino was a nice suprise from Olvi who has only rebranded Olvi III in recent times. This reminded me of Budvar with it’s diacetyl and buttery taste. Might even buy again.

tlind2 (1161) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 13, 2012
500 ml can. Golden color, white head. Slightly sulfuric aroma. Soft, malty flavor, round malty finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nothing special, but I'm not angry either.
