33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 15.10.2015. Thanks Joonas!
Aroma is sweetish and somewhat musty with honey, grainy malt and some starchy notes. Flavour has cardboard, honey, grainy malt and starch. Also mild grassy hops. Finishes somewhat dry. Surprisingly watery for this ABV.

Clear, golden. Cold, gassy, refreshing. Some sweet malt in the flavour. It’s a half decent lager.

nazzty (921) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2014
Okay light lager with flavors that blend well without excessive carbonation. Best suited as a thirst quencher on a hot summers day or as a beer to your meal.

Bottle. One finger white fast head, hint of lacing dots. Chrystal clear, golden. Quite nice but shy aroma, hops and grass. Very low carbons, soft, sweetness, some hoppyness. Better than normal Finnish mass beers.

This is on my humble opinion better ones of the mass produced finnish lagers. Taste is slighly more malty and full than the other similar beers. This is your basic good lager beer.

Zarkam (536) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2014
330ml bottle, clear gold colour, small fizzy fully vanishing white head, almost no lacing. Aroma is somewhat fruity on the nose, grainy and some grassy hops and a hint of pepper in the mouth. Taste is balanced bittersweet and slightly acidic, medium bitter finish with a slightly astringent feel. Medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation. A notch above most of the bulk stuff here and the supermarket version, still nothing too amazing.

MarkoNm (1804) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 19, 2014
Pours out a clear, golden color and a very generous white head with decent retention. The aroma is moderate. There are some malts and grains that the nose easily picks up. The taste is a combination of sweet beginning and bittery body, coming together with a nicely bitter finish. The aftertaste is bitter and decently lasting. Nice effort from Finland.

djoeye (2580) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2014
Can 33 cl 5.3% b@Alko Tornio Finland. Aroma? I searched thoroughly and finally found very mild hops, very pale malts, notes of yellow apple. Pours an off white head, minimal lacings, straw golden clear body. Taste; grains, some malts, faint hops. Slightly watery. Normal to thin. Finishes on the bread side. Overall drinkable, that’s it.
