rosenbergh (7247) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2013
1 500 ml plastic bottle as Rainbow Kotikalja/Svagdricka. BB 03/11/13. (Prisma) Helsinki, Finland.
Dark brown colour with a small off-white head. The aroma is rye bread, malty sweetness and The flavour is dryer with rye bread, mild tartness and hints of citrus. Not bad but not traditional kotikalja either.

taunusmies (331) - FINLAND - FEB 1, 2013
Murky brown colour, minimal off-white head. Taste has a lot of artificial sweetness, lightly malty. A hint of raisins and rye bread. Thin, watery mouthfeel, fizzy carbonation.

esox (1098) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2010
1,5l plastic bottle. Hazy dark reddish brown beer. Thin, soda-like head is white and diminishing. The aroma has rather nice rye maltiness, sugar and a hint of berriness(maybe red currants). Hops are much absent in the aroma. Quite pleasant, mellow rye-bready malty finsh. The taste is sweet, even sugary, but also minor sourness of rye and very light bitterness in the finish. Light to medium bodied, soda-like and carbonation. Slick texture. Better than I thought.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2008
Deep amber colour with a dense off white head. Malty, fruity and vague grassy aroma. Light caramel sweet flavor with a vague grassy note.

liinis (1596) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2008
Can’t recommend this one. dirty beige head dark brown liquid. nothing to do with its name "traditional home brew"

fonefan (35735) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 6, 2008
Bottle. 120cl plastic. [Tasting @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen]. Unclear medium amber color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, beige head. Aroma is moderate grass, berry - friut, sytetic sugar. Flavor is heavy sweet with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. (110308)

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2008
Plastic bottle. Hazy reddish brown with a small white head. Sweet and malty with notes of ryebred and turnips. Very artificial and thin.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
FatPhil (9516) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 28, 2008
1.5l bottle (K market)
Hazy dark brown, brief fizzy head. A huge dose of rye malt and raisins in the aroma, sweet and like a bread pudding. Fizzy carbonated palate, but let’s not forget this is trying to be like a soft drink. Slightly lemon-sharp sour tinges, but a good caramel-sweet malty body packed with vine fruits. Decent but simple malty and raisiny finish. This could with very few changes be a _very_ good LA - if they got rid of the artificial carbonation, and conditioned it in glass bottles, it would rival some of the better Latvian kvasses. Refreshing and tasty.
