2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
50 cl can. Pours clear dark golden liquid with a medium head. Aroma of sweet starch and grain. Flavor follows the same aromas with some hoppy notes. Quite like bulk lager and irritating co-branding with disturbing Finnish rock band Kotiteollisuus (Home industry...)

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml can from a gas station in Helsinki, clear deep gold colour, small fizzy mostly diminishing head, little bit of lacing. Aroma of light cereal malts and a trace of floral hops witha bit of cardboard. Taste is initially light acidic and turns into a slightly bitter abrupt finish with a slightly metallic feel. Light body, dry mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Not much difference to the usual Koff, bulk lager sold at a craft beer price, best to steer clear.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can 50cl. BB 12/2013. Clear golden/pale amber color, small white head. Typical Koff sweet malty-grainy aroma, this is a bit fruity. Light bodied, suprisingly watery palate. Quite close to ordinary Koff. Sweetish malty flavor with evident green apple. Very light grassy bitterness in the finish, but mainly very bulkish. Marketing gimmick.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
33cl can from Stockmann Herkku, Helsinki. Pours clear golden with a small, white head. Moderate grainy aroma with some fruity notes, cooked vegetables and hints of hops and some slightly unpleasant elements. Medium sweet, weak in flavour and just lightly bitter. Watery, but drinkable. It’s possible that Kotiteollisuus, but this beer doesn’t. It’s just another quite standard pale lager...

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can. Pours golden color, white head. Nothing special in aroma or taste, poorly balanced. Morning after "recovery-drink"?

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml can from Kilpis, provided by Gaute. Pours a loose and bubbly white head with satisfying duration. Clear golden body. Pale malty nose with a hint of meat. Rather neutral taste, hints of cereal and some hops. Soft carbonated. Watered in the mouth. Empty, about drinkable though (Tromsø 09,06.2013).

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,5L can. The smell of stale beer or all night opened bottle, morning hangover beer :) Taste is weak. Some dry hops felt. Generally old blue koff taste is to be remembered. Finish is watery unfortunately. Rock beer must be little more lively and cheerful.
