3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Golde color, low white head. Malty aroma with a touch of hops. Malty flavor, good balance. Medium carbonation, a surprisingly heavy body for a lager. A very nice example of a generally uninteresting style.

Tap @ Bruuveri Helsinki. Pours clear golden with a small white head leaving a glass full of lace. Aroma is grainy, malty, a bit sweet and grass; crisp and clean. Flavor is refreshing, malty, bready, a bit perfume, floral, fruity and bitter. Finishes longlived dry bitter. Very nice.

Draught at the brewpub
Hazy blond color. The aroma is a bit malty. It also has a trace of cereals flavor. And enough bitterness. Pleasant.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2007 Draught at Panimoravintola Bruuveri, Helsinki. I sampled the class III and IV versions of this beer alongside each other and, to be honest, found it very difficult to distinguish between them. The class II maybe had a little less body, as one might expect. Deep gold/amber colour. Some light, flowery hop character in the aroma, with a reasonable balance of grassy hop and, quite dry, biscuity malt in the flavour. Clean mouthfeel. Not quite as tansy as the Rokrammi Pils from the same brewery, sampled just before, but pleasant enough.

Keg (Bruuveri, Helsinki)
Way better draught than from bottle. Massively full bodied for a lager, loads of malt, quite sweet. Smooth mouthfeel. Goes down very easily.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange colored, little white head. Sweetness, caramel, some fine floral and spicy tones in aroma, mild bubblegum comes up too. Medium bodied. Flavor is dryer than aroma: starts with mildly sweet caramel tones, aftertaste is dry with hops and some herbs.
