Lambister (208) - - OCT 29, 2012
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.

Clear golden color with small head. Pretty basic pale lager. Drinkable, but not special.

Braastad (410) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2014
Pale color, very small head Aroma is yeasty and malty. Flavor is malty, not that sweet. Fairly balanced but too carbonated.

djoeye (1380) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2014
Clear pale golden body, airy white head, diminishing, leaving some lacings. Scents of sweet/pale malts, hints of marzipan, green grass. Fruity grains to the tongue, malts, bread. Slightly watery, not much body. Half dry finish with some bread n grass, some cardboard. Macro lager which is very popular in Finland. Can 33cl b@Kilpishalli, tasted@home.

machinen (3) - - FEB 12, 2014 does not count
33cl can @ beach. Seems like a basic, watery pale lager that’s good enough to get drunk from at first, but after a few cans the malty aroma starts to sicken you. Especially if the beer gets warmer.

Andy_ (669) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Clear golden yellow, white head disappears instantly. Aroma is maizey, honeyish sweet and cardboardy stale. Flavor is a bit sweet, mostly just watery and tasteless. No finish or bitterness. Thin mouthfeel with high carbonation. This beer doesn’t let any flavors get between drinker and drunkness. Got this for free at the company christmas party.

Leighton (10855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2013
Can at a ChrisO Tasting - London. Pours clear, rich gold with a fine, white foam head. Big grainy malt and cereal aroma, some faint bread and caramel. Mild sweet flavor with cereal, leafy bitterness, paper, lightly toasty grass. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Dry finish with moderate sweetness, some toasted cereal, paper, surprisingly bitter leaves. Fine.

taunusmies (331) - FINLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Golden colour. Sweet malty aroma. Light notes of cardboard and grass. Mouthfeel was surprisingly good, not too watery or sticky. OK lager for the cheap price.

Pyrmir (3337) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2013
330 ml can, rated from backlog. Clear golden with white head. Aroma and taste is sweet, vegetables, pale malt and grain. Not that great, really

jookos (2092) - FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Can. Yellow pale. Pale grainy malts, lager yeast. Nothing much here. A good finnish lager.
