UPDATED: MAR 7, 2007 Good, balanced malt and hop taste. Not too bitter but very full and tasty. A bit darker in colour than a basic pale lager. Excellent mouth feel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 55 cl can via oh6gdx (thanks!). Pours a clear golden copper with a large white head, Not much aroma, perhaps a little maltiness and some pears. Flavor is subtle, with a little caramel maltiness, some lager yeast, some mild grassy hops, and even a little bit of pear and apricot. Smooth finish. Medium body and not watery like many of this style are. Good mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Very refreshing. One of the better Pale Lagers. Perfect for the style and better than any American pale lager i have had.

It smells of yeast, not much foam. A bit of grass, very bitter and dirty taste. Not much aftertaste. Better than many others in the same category, Finnish lagers.

I think the beer has a bit deeper and more intensively malty and somewhat fruity taste than commonly found in Finish lagers. A tad
better than Sinebrychoff’s flagship beer (red KOFF), but nothing to write home about.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Canned 0,50L. Fading and light head. Yellow much pale color, nearly deprives of fizz. Watery and gaunt aroma, light alcohol and malty rumors. Simple and insufficient taste; little racy and little bitter. Unbalanced notes of waters cereals and dampen straw. Short and unpleasant end.

This is the latest beer I have tried, and I was pleasantly surprised, considering it’s a finnish beer. Quite a bit of flavor, and the aroma was quite nice, just a bit of metal in the aftertaste, some sweetness on the tip of the tongue...
