2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, pale golden beer with a medium-size but diminishing head and some lace. The aroma has lightly wheaty malts and citrus esthers. Light in the finish. Hops are barely noticable. The flavor has some sweetish maltiness and citrusy fruitiness. Not too sweet though. The palate is light bodied and a bit watery in the finish, well carbonated and quite refreshing.

500 ml can. Finland.

Weak wheat and citrus aroma. Quite nice though. Sweet flavour is also somewhat wheat and quite citrusy as well. Nothing spectacular but easy-to-drink.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml can. Clear, quite nice colour. Pale head. Aroma is light and a little fruity. Taste has definitely a little wheat in it and feels like a good beer to drink in warm summer day. Not a milestone in beers, but surely Iím buying another one someday.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can (BB 09/2009).
Clear, pale golden color, very small white head. Grainy-malty, a bit spicey aroma with light bubblegummy wheatish notes. Fizzy. Grainy malty and citrus candy honeyish sweet brew with sticky but light hoppy/spicey finish. Hints of wheat in the aftertaste. Very watery palate. Simple lager with (too) light wheaty notes - with citrus and honey notes, a bit like a Finnish sima. Nikolai III with less body and more sweetness?
