2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle (SOPP2012, Turku)
Pretty simple lager. Full and solid, but unintersting. Pleasantly dry and well-attenuated, but still a little sticky. Full, but a bit plasticky and neutral. Adequate for what it is, has no major flaws, but just too dull for my tastes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Appearance is quite light with OK head. This is basically a lager with a bit more hops than average, but not so much as in some German pils. Well, resembles maybe somewhat the Czech Urquell. In the end I wasn’t sure if slight bitterness came from hops or the CO2. Still, this is a good one for a traditional Finnish lager.

Quite regular pils, drinkable but nothing to remember. Not strongly hopped, whatever the brewer says.
