Draught @ Plevna, Tampere. Light golden color, little bit cloudy. White soapy head. Aroma has soft hops aroma with lemon. Flavor on the other hand is nothing but soft. Lovely dry and bitter with stunning hops. Honest pilsener.. must be my first finnish pilsener which actually tastes likes one.

Hana @ Leskinen. Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja hieman sameana, niukka mutta pysyvä vaahto on tiivis ja mattomainen jättäen vahvaa pitsiä. Hajusta tuntuu kuin jenkkihumalat olisi sotkettu pilsiin: trooppista hedelmää, sitrusta, puuta ja viljaisuutta löytyy melko tasaisesti. Maussa jenkkivivahde jää hienosti taka-alalle. Hyvin viljaisen maltainen ja ruohoisen humalainen ensivaikutelma sitruksen, puumaisuuden sekä olkisuuden tukemana. Suutuntuma on todella katkeroinen, humalointi puree kyllä hyvin. Tuntuma on myös kuiva, raikas ja napakka. Hieno, todella hieno pils, joka on samalla kertaa raikas, katkera, kuiva, virkistävä ja monipuolinen. Mestariteos ja tyylinsä ehdotonta parhaimmistoa.

Draught @ Olutravintola Kukko. Golden beer, white head has small bubbles. Aroma is grassy hoppy, bready malty and citrus fruity. Flavour is very bitter with long aftertaste where bitterness stings your tongue. Bready malts, grassy hops, citrus. I like this very much and it’s a pity when this rotating tap changes to another beer.

Draught @ Pikkulintu

Pours clear orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of grassy hops, bready maltiness, some hints of butter and citrus. Taste is smooth, extremely hoppy and bitter with hints of grass, butter and sweetness. Finish is hoppy, grassy and lingering bitter with some sweet buttery notes and bready maltiness. Tasty stuff, at least for hopheads like myself. Quite extreme Czech pils. Nom.

Tap @ the brewpub.
Almost clear golden color, medium sized head. Nice bitter and fruity hops on the nose right off the bat, slight buttery notes with grass also. Grassy, a bit harsh bitter palate with orange and gooseberries on the flavor. Nice and definitely refreshing. Should be a regular.

Tap @ Plevna
Slightly hazy golden orange beer with a huge white cloudy head leaving massive lacing on the glass. Aroma has grassy and citrusy hops, sweet malts and some buttery diacetyl. Taste is first malty, then citrusy and grassy hoppy until the massive bitterness on the finish kicks in. It’s like chewing grapefruit peel. Mouthfeel is thicker than medium with quite heavy carbonation. A really heavily bitter beer - a bit simple but still enjoyable.

lusikka (5948) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Draught @ the brewpub, Tampere. Pours a slightly hazy colour with a white head. Leaves nice lacing to the glass. Aroma is very rich with grassy hops and herbal notes. Flavour is very rich and extremely bitter with grains, mild citrus, butter and bread. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a long, lingering bitter, dry finish. My kind of a beer. A bit better than I remembered.

This version is filtered and last time I had this (2011) it was filtered as well. The original Petolintu entry should be splitted to an unfiltered version and a filtered version, I think.

Pours a clear golden colour with some visible bubbles and a thick, white, very lacy head with good retention. Aroma of bitter hops, light honey and some malts. Flavour of grainy malts, very bitter grassy hops, honey and light toffee. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a very bitter finish. Extremely hopped pils, very nice.
