Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2010
Standard lager colored with little white head. Slightly flowery hopped aroma which dominates, nothing more comes up. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is thinner in start with sweet malts and some grass, aftertaste turns to Saaz hopped.

BeerBaboon (1554) - FINLAND - OCT 11, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2010 A golden beer with quite a lot of head. Hoppy aroma. A tad watery. Iíd say that this one is good if youíre thirsty and not too picky about what you drink. This kind of beer has itís place. Probably a good beer when itís cold and the weather is warm. You can feel the saaz in this one. It makes this beer a lot better than what it would be without it.

lusikka (6206) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2010
500 ml can. Rated @ 8.4.2010.
Pours a golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of malts and grass. Flavour of sweet malts with caramel notes. Light bodied, watery mouthfeel. A bit better than the other Koff brews.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Golden light color, almost no head. Very lager like smell. Taste is mostly about hops. There is some sweetness, but not much. Mostly boring beer.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2010
(Canned, sampled 2010-03-24) Clear golden with a smallish, quite firm, lightly lacy head. Quite strongly rubbery nose with plastic, sulphur and cardboard, sprinkled with sour lemon. Grainy, slightly caramel-honeyish-malty flavor with herby aroma hops, some sour lemon, and not much bitterness before the aftertaste. Starchiness getting irritating when warming up. Almost medium body, soft CO2. Yes, different from the regular Koff, but not necessarily for better. Especially the aroma is quite repulsive, but smooth overall appearance and decent body help here. Probably best drank straight from the can.

Hermod (3139) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2010
0.568L can. Poured clear golden color, white sparkling white head. Weak grassy aroma. Flavor is bready, malty, sweet and with some bitterness in the finish. I prefer this over the traditional III version.

mickut (276) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2010
Can, 500ml. Pours clear golden with immediately dissappearing small white head. Taste is lightly bitter with a bit of sweetness and dryness in the finish. Palate is averagely carbonated, light to medium bodied. Aromas have light malts and hay, some pleasant coniferous hop notes. Aftertaste has a bit of barnyard.

FatPhil (9281) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 11, 2010
500ml can
Pours a rich gold, with a slightly scummy head. Scary - this actually smells like beer - itís a dry peppery, slightly undergrowthy, noble hop bitterness. As expected, itís a bit fizzy and watery, but hey, itís a lager and thatís what it was designed to be. Not just a lager, this is a proper pilsener style. Even to the tangy hoppy retronasals. Taste a bit disappointing - thereís the full malt there and the gentle bite of slightly metallic hops, but itís all just so Finnish - it canít lose that Koff macro fingerprint. However, if it teaches Finns to look for a little more flavour in their beer, then thatís a good thing.

bierkoning (10159) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2010
Can from Tbone, thanks! Golden color. Floral, slightly perfumed aroma. Floral, soft hopbitter flavor with some melon notes. Thinnish. Not unpleasant.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2010 Pale gold hue, brilliant clarity, tight and frothy white head. Bready, almost toasty, malts are set lightly against frail, spicy hops with churning sulfuric undercurrent reminiscent of cabbage. Balance falls on the sweet side in this mild beer; a carbonic bite does the real work to fend off the malts. Vegetal astringency lends to the cabbage impression; brisk carbonation on a light body with an almost silky texture.

Aroma, flavor and mouthfeel faults hamper an already anemic offering. With twice the bitterness, this might have been interesting. 50 cl can, bbe 25.03.2011.
