Can
Blond color. Ordinary lager, but both the aroma and taste feature a light aromatic hopping.

rlgk (10082) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2006
Pale golden, ok head. Hardly no aroma at all. Watery and thin, but at least it didnt taste bad.
Earlier Rating: 8/1/2003 Total Score: 2.3
Yellow beer with a a surprisingly nice head.Bittersweet aroma, but my first thought when i tasted it was dishwater. It got better after a while, but not good.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2006
Standard lager color, little lasting medium sized white head. Fruity, sweet, mildly hopped and some citrus in aroma. Medium bodied. Fruits, malt, sweetness in flavor, ends with mildly dry aftertaste with notes of alcohol.
Earlier Rating: 10/25/2005 Total Score: 3
Light yellow color, little white head. Fruity, sweet and nicely hopped grassy aroma. Medium bodied. Nice pilsner flavor: crispy, nicely hopped and medium carbonation, mildly dry ending with some grass. Reminds me of some Nisl Oscar lagers.

nicholai (100) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2006
A very charming beer that doesn’t deliver in terms of taste. Beautiful champagne cholored with a fulminant white head that lingers. Fresh hoppy smell - again the taste leaves somethign to be desired.

Ungstrup (29107) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2005
A light yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is OK malt sweet with light citrus notes and a nice hop presence. The flavor is sweet with light notes of alcohol and a dry bitter end. The flavor is too simple for me and too simple to cover up the alcohol.

larsam (127) - Southampton, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2005
Golden with white head. Malty with a decent bitterness for a massproduced lager. Nothing special, but not at all bad.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Fully golden with a fine, dense, creamy and rather stable head. Very malty and soft with a discreet touch of hops. OK standard lager. 110403
Earlier Rating: 8/29/2005 Total Score: 1.4
(Bottle 33 cl) Golden beer with no head, completely flat - must be off. Flavours are OK though. Full-bodied with a distinct, hoppy character. 210800

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2005
(Canned) Pale yellow-golden color with a large, frothy, white head. Acidic and corny-malty aroma. Sourish, lemony-hoppy and somewhat malty flavor with a quick, mildly bitter finish. Quite light-bodied and carbonated palate. Drinkable, but not very interesting. I found the X-Strong (7.2%) version better.

omhper (19213) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2004
Canned. Golden colour, rich, firm head. Vague grassy nose. Sweetish with bready maltiness and some grainyines. Some grassy hops leads to a quite bitter finish with a touch of metal. Not great, but flawless and a lot better than most cheap Swedish lagers.
