raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JUN 20, 2008
Bottle 0.33 l. Pale golden, smallish fizzy and disappearing head. Nose is grassy, hayish, some barnyard and maltiness. Flavor is initially fruity, fresh and slightly sour and acidic (in a finnish lager way), but turns into a long, subtle hoppy aftertaste. And the aftertaste is beautiful, rarely have I experienced such a long aftertaste. Interesting mixture of fruitiness and hayish hoppiness. Not exactly bitter at any point.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2008 (Bottled) Clear golden with a small, bubbly head. Aromatic, herby-grassy hops with some honeyish maltiness in the aroma. The flavor also has herby hops, decently balancing buttery-caramely maltiness, and a dry, somewhat bitter finish. Almost medium-bodied with quite smooth carbonation. Very nice for a Finnish lager/pilsener. (Draught@Bruuveri, was 6-3-6-3-12=3.0) Clear golden with a small, lacy head. Aromatic, herby-grassy hops with some honeyish maltiness. Herby hops, some berries, and slightly sweet malts in the typical Saimaan Panimo flavor. Hints of metal, with a reasonably dry and bitter finish. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Better than I expected, with a reasonable amount of flavor and hops.
