2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sold as Hovikelpoinen juhlaolut. Looks like a pale lager, minimal head. Aroma is grassy hops, mild malts and a hint of citrus. Taste is a bit watery, grassy hops, lager-like maltiness. Thin and okay carbonation. Light bitterness. Rather okay and drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.5 l bottle @ some local foodstore in Helsinki. I didn’t expect much and it didn’t look anything special. But I liked the taste very much. There was some fruitness combined with the bitterness of the hops.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Golden color. Aromas of honey, citrus and grass. Honeyish and grassy flavor with some citrus and hint of old bread. Light to medium body. Somehow this does not taste as crisp and bright I expect from a lager.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A golden colour, white and quite weak head. Aroma is strongly malty and quite sweet, some grassy hops and bread. Taste is malty, honey, sweetness, mild grassy hoppyness, that slightly dries the taste, some herbs in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, slippery and nice to drink. Pure and malty beer, but more bitterness and courage would be needed.
