33cl can. Mass market lager which is better than many old mass market brands actually. Has some fruity aromas and is refreshing to drink with lots of malt. No body or aftertaste though.

Tuli testattua rinnakkain Carlsberg 4.5% ja Pirkka 3-olut 4.5%. Molemmat kirkkaan kullankeltaisia oluita. Carlsbergissa säilyvämpi ja hieman pitsiä jättävä vaahto, kun Pirkassa vaahtoa ei ole juuri lainkaan. Carlsberg myös poreilee selvästi Pirkkaa enemmän. Carlsbergille pisteet tästä. Tuoksu Carlsbergissä aavistuksen vahvempi, mutta vain peruslagermaisen maltainen ja hieman tunkkainen. Maultaan molemmat hieman vetisiä ja kivennäisvesimäisiä, mutta Carlsbergissä hieman pilsin ominaisuuksia ja voimaista makua, jolla se peittoaa tälläkin osuudella Pirkan.

330ml can (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Sweet malty pale lager. Taste is bready and malty. pale, and a bit fizzy. Macro, but fairly drinkable malty brew.

rostetti (157) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Pours clear golden with small white head. Aroma and taste both are malty, and somehow it tastes a bit like sausage and sometimes plastic. For some reason I like the taste more than other Finnish bulk lagers.

Marduk (6161) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2016
330ml can (Kamppi, Helsinki). Had to drink it quickly, while trying to catch last boat back to Tallinn, ’cause it started to leak in my rugsack. Bland and watery. Malty, starch, some paper. Never again.

nihtila (2833) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
11.7.2014. Basic lager but smell and taste has something strange, stingyish sweetish which makes it not very drinkable.
