Quite light yellow, medium white head, which vanishes quickly, no lace. Aroma is light and mild, slightly musty, slightly flowery. Light - almost watery body. Light malty and bitter, somewhat watery flavor. Short finish. Boring light bulk lager.

Bottled (BB 10/2004, brewed in Kerava)
Lager color, white foamy head, lots of lace. Aroma is metallic and corn. Light carbonated body. Watery and one dimensional, suprisingly some hops present. This is "light beer".

Bottled (BB 07/2004, brewed in Kerava)
Pale yellow, small foamy white head. Typical Koff-metallic aroma. Very light-bodied and carbonated palate. Not much flavor at all and no aftertaste. Like drinking Bud Lite or something.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2007 (Bottled) Clear, paleish golden with a smallish head and some lace. Very mild aroma of slightly sour malt and plastic. Faintly corny-malty, slightly sour and plasticky flavor with slight, grassy bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied, but not quite watery palate with high and foamy carbonation. Bearable, but not as much so as I recalled from last sampling...
(Bottled, was 4-2-4-2-7=1.9) Typical lager color with a small, lacy head. Mild, grassy and corny, slightly metallic aroma. Sweetish, quite neutral, fruity, honey/corn flavor with some hops and even milk chocolate present. Light-bodied, quite carbonate palate. A quite pleasant and soft-tasting after-sauna beer. Better than I expected, and managed to avoid the usual "Koff-skunkiness". Is this the next Lapin Kulta?

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Slight, unpleasantly metallic aroma. Very watery taste, with a sourish tang to the almost nonexistent malt and hops. Drinkable only if there is nothing else around.
