MiP (13596) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Draught, 4.6% at Bruuveri. Weak bready aroma. Hazy golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour is quite citric. Dusty notes, quite malty, but the acidity puts me off a bit, like most other Finnish lagers. Fruity finish.

TEJA (1285) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2011 Thinn yellow colour and lingering foam. Small amounts of vegetables. Very small taste but a plesant bitterness that stays. Lawn mover thirst quencher.

larsga (6179) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2008
Medium white head. Copper body. Light perfumy malty aroma, quite neutral. Dry apple and straw taste with hoppy notes. A bit watery. Dry papery, rubbery aftertaste with chalky grainy notes. Not bad, but didn’t enjoy it that much. (0.33l bottle, Vantaa airport.)

SaintMatty (5192) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2008
Draught at Panimoravintola Bruuveri, Helsinki- Golden in colour with not much of a discernible aroma at first but this could be down to the serving temperature. Grainy and malty aroma with a grassy, malty taste. It is quite refreshing but nothing special. Tastes very fresh though.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2007
Draught at the brewpub
Blond color. For being the Lager for the masses, this one is brewed quite well; the malt shows a bit in the end and the bitterness is strong.
