UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 Aroma is a mix between rising yeast dough and a skunk. Maybe not as bad. Doesn’t look too bad in the glass although the head dissappeared before i got my lips on it. My biggest knock is the flavor. I’m not sure what it is but I certainly know what it’s not....very good. Somewhat light, tingely, on the palate but I’d rather drink champaign or have a Duval. Overall, it’s overpriced and I’m having buyers remorse. I’ve rethought this beer after chilling it down a bit. Still not great, but somewhat refreshing when very cold.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Tap at Saharra’s Cafe in Jacksonville. The club was exquisitely bizarre. The beer was excruciatingly mundane. I was talked into this one by a cute waitress. Not much better than a Budweiser. I wondered if maybe they had poured me a Bud by mistake. Not even in the same league with the Bass Ale I had there. Even a Newcastle would have been better... 11-12-2005 .... rerate from a 33cl bottle. Clear pale golden, no head. Light skunk aroma. Typical euro-lager flavor. Boring.

33ml btl. I really like this beer, even though it’s light. nice aroma with a bit of citrus, hops, and hay. nice small bubbles with a billowing, lasting head. slight lacing. this beer looks a lot better than a crap macro, despite it’s lightness, and it smooth and pleasant going down with a bit of bitterness, and some dry citrus . i think this beer should be rated a bit better.

Pours pale yellow with a small white head and some spotty lacing. Sour malt aroma with a faint hop nose. Pale buttery malt flavor. Smooth and light creamy palate.

Draft. A nice clean pour. Golden yellow and clear. Not much aroma. A slight sweet hint of malt and a light taste of hops.

oh6gdx (25392) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 12, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 Bottled. Hazyish yellow colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma of maize with hints of bread. Smooth flavour of bready malt, a bit grassiness and bitterish hoppy finish. Maize and hoppy bitterness in aftertaste. Very wellbalanced, but not that special. 6 2 6 3 10

Bottled. Pale yellowish golden colour, mediumsized white head, that leaves slight lace. Aroma is maize, mild grains, some bready malts as well as grass and some mild floral and herbal notes. Flavour is quite similar in a quite nice balance. Quite ok for a "big" lager.

Pretty mild all the way around-aroma, flavor and overall impression. An easy beer to drink, but nothing that stood out. A good lager with medium body.

Thin laced head, crisp, no bitterness. Nothing stands out about this beer, but somewhat refreshing.

Had it on tap with dinner. Straw Yellow in color, thin head, and a bit of carbination. No real noticable aroma. First flavor was that of any other lager..nothing special. However, had a nice bitter finish that was surprising. Too expensive for what you get, and very over-hyped. Not a bad beer, but would not buy again.
