progressive (74) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2010
This is like some of the finest home/family beers. Very soft yet full of taste. Well, the aroma is mostly roasty and nothing special, but great still.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2010
Can 568ml (BB 05/2011)
Dark ruby color, small beige head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, metal, vegetables and coffee. Light to medium bodied. Typical Olvi soft palate, but a bit more bitterness than normally. Flavor is dark malty, caramelly (not roasted), finish has some light coffee notes. Dry aftertaste. More balanced than Export version. Reasonably good dark Velko imitation.

Unde (358) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Nice amber color, with a little brown head. Head disappears rather quickly. Taste isn’t that special, malts are presented nicely. Smooth texture, but still somewhat strong beer.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 16, 2011
Can 56,8 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Sweet caramel in the nose, and a little pumpernickel. Thin body, dry caramel notes and discreet roast. The finish is dry and short. Very drinkable. 160411

tkrjukoff (4057) - SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2011
Can, Supermarket, Kuopio. Pours clear dark copper with a small off white head leaving small lacing. Aroma is malty, roasted, fruity and caramel. Flavor is like the aroma. Finishes dry bitter.

Tide (1785) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2012
Can from super market. Dark red color, beige head. Smooth bitter taste with caramel, toast and a hint of chocolate. Pretty light body. Smooth, somewhat roasty finish. Very decent lager.

tlind2 (1130) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2010
Pint can. Copper color, tan head. Roasted malt flavor with some nuttiness. Light body, medium-high carbonation. Smooth and straight-forward, if lacking in surprises and complexity.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Kavu (2225) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2010
Pours darkish brown with a light head. Aroma is slightly roasted malts and some caramel, which pretty much describes the flavor too. Nothing special but clearly better than finnish bulk lagers like the blonde Sandels.

bierkoning (10197) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2010
Can from Tbone, thnaks! Amber color. Soft grainy caramelly aroma. Grainy sweetish flavor with caramelly notes. Watery mouthfeel. Quite drinkable.

kalervo (689) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2010
In my opinion, not as good as pale lager version of Olvi Sandels. Nothing to remeber but not bad either.
