Balanced, yet aromatic and full-bodied. At its best in good company and sociable surroundings. Fresh, cool, pleasant.

Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, light malts, grain, caramel, grass. Taste is slightly dry, light malts, hay, weeds, grain, caramel. Medium bitterness. Fair enough, boring.

Zarkam (369) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2013
330ml bottle from local supermarket and a 440ml bottle from Russia made under license at Baltika, tried both in a blind test. Cereal aroma with some grassy hints, golden colur, light body, thin mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Interestingly enough the one made under license at Baltika was overall slightly less watery. A relatively poor basic lawnmower beer.

Tasted at a few locations in Helsinki. A pleasant quaffable beer without rising to any great or notable heights. basement aromas, it had a faint, but notunpleasant aroma, poured with a reasonable head, and had a slight resin taste.

Draft. Clear golden pour with white head. Light lager aroma, simpiler than the IV. Flavor is also ligher, and less abc.

Unde (329) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2013
Bright yellow looking beer with thick small head which immediately disappears. Scent has grain mainly but something bitter as well. Taste is basic mild grain with some bitterness but carbonation is way too high and pushes this beer down. Basic pale lager.

Armadill0 (249) - FINLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Can. Light yellow, medium white head. Aroma is mild and grainy. Taste is frisk. Main flavor is grain though it is pretty mild. Some metal. Somewhat watery. Alcohol doesnt really push through. A bit bitter aftertaste. Little repulsive but all in all a somewhat good compromise in the bulk beer market.

Pyrmir (3189) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2013
330 ml can, rated from backlog. Deep golden with white head. Aroma weak, breadm citrus, metal. I remember this one as my favourite of the finnish crap lagers.

laiti (5407) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 06.11.2013
Aroma is slightly sweet with corn, honey and some grainy malt. Flavour has grainy malt, some corn and hints of honey. Finishes with distant herbal notes and some grass.
This used to be my favourite Finnish bulk lager, but I am not sure about that anymore. At least this is not the worst.

jookos (1907) - FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Can. Light colour, fizzy. Pale malts, neutral yeast. The typical finnish lager. Malties, mustier than for instance us or mexican, but not like czech. Not much hops or bitterness to speak of.
