Pale yellow clear body with white head. Aromas sweet malts, grains. Palate thin with medium carbonation and mouth feel. Aftertaste paper and medium short mild hops finish. Bulk bier I had years ago.

Corn aroma with alcohol, alcoholic taste. Light body. I don’t like this at all, even tuplapukki is an upgrade to this.

Light golden, fizzy, medium white head, which rather quickly disappears. Aroma is moderately malty, sweet, slightly alcoholic, notes of fruits, estery. Light to medium body. Flavor is moderately malty, moderately alcoholic, sweet, notes of fruits, hint of esters, rather strong. Dry, alcoholic, medium-length finish.

Bottled. Dark golden coloured, no head. Hayish and malty aroma with hints of alcohol. Bittersweet flavour with hayish hints in finish. Hides alcohol well in flavour. Not much aftertaste except for weak hints of bread and hay.

(on botle)..."hm, sweet and malty, not realy a heavy beer. Let´s seem how strong was ut again?" 7,5%!? That dosen´t show at all, so If on´s up for a easy party, go for "Strong", you´ll never know what hit ya. A true malt liquor.

Dark honey color, small white head. Nose has sweet fruits and corn. Sweet, harsh flavor with alcoholic kick. This is a real malt liquor. Even Olvi Tuplapukki with 8,5% ABV is better balanced.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2005 (Bottled) Deep golden color with a medium, tight and disappearing, white head. Mild, fruity, corny, alcoholic aroma. Harsh, sweetish-malty, alcoholic flavor. Light to medium-bodied, oily and stingingly alcoholic palate. A typical malt liquour with a pale lager body and a liquour flavor. This is probably the beer from which other Olvi lagers are made by adding water.

(Can). I only sampled the contents of half the can (without much carbonation) as the other half leaked out in my suitcase during the flight from Helsinki(!) But even a normal carbonation couldn't possibly have hidden the fact that this is just another golden "get drunk fast" strong lager, quite uninteresting in any aspect. I give it a few points for not being blatantly offensive.

omhper (23716) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2002
Golden coloured. Syrupy sweet, no flavours apart from the alcocohl. Very poorly made strong lager.

Dragonblaze99 (353) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2002
Sweetish aroma. Not much taste, the alchol in this beer drowns almost everything else, you can detect only faint malt and hops. But it will get you wasted pretty fast.
