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 (1212) - 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.

mtu71 (364) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2014
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.

Jore (12) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2014
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 (538) - 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.
