Slight hazy golden some head. Aroma of grape malty honey cheap hops. Tastes of raspberry gummy bears, gelatin some bitter. Not overly sweet. Pretty good for a pale lager.

BitchPls (404) - FINLAND - JUN 13, 2013
Clear golden yellow beer with a medium foamy white head. Malty fart aroma. Sweet, citrus notes, a hint of bitterness in the after taste. A lot better than the Lapin kulta I had for breakfast.

cmonster (953) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottled. Pours crystal clear pale gold with a fluffy medium sized white head. Persistent head, solid lacing. Good start. Medium sweet corn aroma and not much else, but it’s pleasant enough. Flavor matches the nose with a thin-sticky texture, light-med body and a mild hop and creamy malt finish. Solid drinker.

jookos (1522) - FINLAND - APR 30, 2013
Can. Pee coloured, clear. Grainy light malty, pretty neutral yeast. Light body, pretty normal bulk lager. Not bad though, well made, good consumability.

hawthorne00 (2252) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle. Pale gold with a white head. Grainy aroma with some lemon. Sweet and pretty bland with modest but somehow harsh bitterness. Finish is dry. Not really enjoyable but more dull than offensive.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2013
Bouteille 500ml. De couleur dorée pâle et claire. Léger nez de grains de malt, de maïs sucré avec des notes de miel ainsi que des notes de houblon floral et herbeux. Assez mince en bouche et moyennement pétillante avec une texture légèrement huileuse et aqueuse. Goût de grains de malt pâle légèrement croustillants lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût de maïs sucré avec des traces de sucre chimique puis en finale l’on retrouve un très léger goût de houblon herbeux (gazon) aux notes florales. Post-goût court, très légèrement amer de houblon herbeux aux notes florales. (2006)

GIJOE (469) - Monterey, California, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours cloudy yellow like pee. Smells a little better than pee; something like wet corn husks.Tastes a little better than pee, I imagine, although I can’t be sure, as I’ve never tried pee. Blech. Tfoo.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 Had in Tallinn Sep 2011. A standard lager, nice enough. Malty sweetness. Hot weather, so much needed refreshment.
