ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2007
Can. Smells like yeast. Very pale in color, insanely thick head, one could eat it with a fork. Flavor doesn’t have anything. Not even the bitterness of some hops in the finish. Why brew stuff like this?

larsniclas (5554) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2007
Canned. Pale golden with a brief, unclean, white head. Sour in both aroma and flavour; maize and straw. Thin, sour and utterly boring.

anders37 (16410) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2007
Can. Pours a clear pale golden color with a longlasting white head. Grainy corn aroma with some weak sour hints. Sweet malty and slightly metallic flavor with some grainy hints. Dry finish with no bitterness.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - OCT 20, 2007
Bottle 0.33 l as Light Beer. I was waiting for the advertised fresh aftertaste, but it never came. Hence the fresh? Not that far from "ykkösolut", just more alcohol %. Sort of sweet and sour with nice carb. Not bad, but it’s... not much else either.

rlgk (10098) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2007
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2007) Bottle. Pale golden, white head. No aroma. Malty, bready flavor, not that clean...

Herrb (2) - SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2007 does not count
Can from swedish systembolaget. Clear pale colour . Smells like cooked vegetables. Low bitternes and more vegetables is the taste

gnoff (7687) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2007
(50 cl can from Swedish Systembolaget) Tried as "Saxon 4.1%". Clear golden color, white fast dissapearing head. Sour and canned corn scent, also a bit grainy. Metallic, malty, grainy and acidic taste. Grainy dry aftertaste. Spritzy mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Try having this if you absolutely don’t stand gluten, otherwise it’s just a waste. Well, one more rating and all that, but still.

berkshirejohn (4397) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2007
330ml bottle. Another typical Finnish lager - deep straw with a white head; fruity aroma; dry grainy taste.

Pours clear and pale yellow. Medium carbonated, Taste is sweetish and has some corny malts and a bit hops with a metallic hint.

ekstedt (5354) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2007
Can, 50 cl (Saxon). Clear golden, medium frothy white head. Grainy, honeyish malt, no hop profile. Light bodied and a bit watery. A bit sweet with low but still tangible bitterness. Ok if served cold on a hot day.
