2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This was actually quite a nice surprise. A tad sweet, malty and full. Definately packs a lot more taste than a basic pale lager from this region.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl can. Golden colour with a retentive white head; honey aroma; sweet, honeyed taste; clean refreshing slightly bitter finish. Much, much better than Saku Originaal.

50 cl can from a Finnish grocery store.
Rather malty beer, but it is nothing above the ordinary. Some hops add al little, but there is not enough dryness to make up for the malty sugar. No need for all the colourful boasts on the can!

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, courtesy of saxo. Clear, golden body and a small, white head. Cellary nose with a sourish touch, quite malty and fruity. The flavor is much better, but I can’t say I agree with the commercial description stating it’s the crème de la crème of beers. Pale malts, fruityness and some bitterness. The bitterness is mostly evident in the end. Medium body with a pleasant carbonation. A decent beer, nothing more, especially the aroma pulls the score down. 110416

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
50 cl alu-can, dark blue with golden parts. Bought in Finland, enjoyed in Norway.
Scents of red and yellow apples, and hops, some pale malts.
Pours a standard to lively bubbled head over a clear golden body.
Tastes balanced between the malt and hops, and some hints of medicine, bread, grains.
Mouthfeel round and gentle, and there is a hint of metallic meadworth.
But aftertaste boring as a hospital corridor decorated with cardboard.
Though, it is a decent quality lager overall.
