3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from K-citymarket Kemi. Golden beer with a bubbly head. Nice aroma of malts and honey. Bittersweet flavour has the same maltiness combined with a right amount of honey. Not too sweet, nice balance between malts, honey and hops. Was suprised I liked this this much.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Small white head and an average, pale yellow color. Aroma of hops, soap and some honey, nothing awesome. Tastes mostly of honey and hops, rather sweet in general but has a touch of bitterness too. Light body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish has a strong honey character with notable hop bitterness, simple but not bad. Overall the beer is rather mediocre and doesn’t surprise anywhere but does not offend either.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brown bottle 0.5L abv 4.7%, "Viikingkien Voima Olut Harald", bought at Kilpishalli, Kilpisjärvi Finland.
White head reduces to a filmy layer and very few lacings.
Body pale straw golden.
Scents of hops, soap, faint mild malt, faint honey, hints of yeast.
Tastes grains, sweet malts, hops, hints of toffee, and a very tiny piece of honey.
Mostly sweet and grainy to palate, hops almost absent. Ends with bread notes all over. "Style: Spice/Herb/Vegetable"; It is not eminently spicy.
Overall well drinkable as an average pilsener.

I like that they’ve used honey in moderation, but a little bit more would have added to the product somewhat.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from supermarket in Kotka, extremely pale golden colour, small white head aroma of cereal, some honey and a hint of grassy hops, fairly pleasant bittersweet aftertaste, medium body. Quite well-balanced, which is unusual for honey beers, but lacks character, more than in bulk lagers though.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml bottle as Harald Viikinkien Voimaolut by Stallhagen. BB 01/05/2014. (Prisma) Helsinki, Finland.
Clear golden colour with a tiny white head.
The aroma is some toffee sweetness, soap, mild malt and some mild hops. There’s not that much honey but some general sweetness in the aroma. That’s a good thing. Let’s see the flavour. It could be also fruity and sugary sweetness. Hmm... no it can’t... it’s very sweet honey... ewww... yukh! Unpleasant sweetness. I can’t stand honey... if I wasn’t clear enough... well, I try to find something else there too. There’s malt, some hops and cardboardy sweetness. I don’t like this.

Klen och blek. Har förvisso precis klämt en tung barleywine. Känner inte mycket av honungen som skulle tillföra något. Smakar mest lite off
