500ml bottle - gift from SaintMatty - thanks!
Pale gold. Well, there’s everything in this one! For a start there’s toys - tonka trucks and freshly opened packs of lego. But there’s more - it’s got potatoes too! Not just freshly sliced ones, but also lightly fried thick (English style) ones. The Sauna Gods were not too offended by a spashed offering of this upon their sacred stones, and the assembled worshippers thanked them for the toasty vapours they returned. What more can you ask for? (Just don’t mention beer.)

Rune (7986) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2013
500ml bottle kindly shared by Gaute. Pours a slightly cloudy, late straw coloured body. Film-type layer. Poor lacing. Sweet grain-fruity nose. Dough-like taste with bland fruity hints towards the ending. Cardboard dry. Mealy palate. Has got little to offer (Tromsø, 24.10.2013).

rosenbergh (6672) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 5, 2009
500 ml bottle. From Pärnu, Estonia.
Clear golden colour with small white head. Aroma is almost like some hops and maltiness but not quite like. Not bad though but not very beer-like. Some soda-likeness. Rather drinkable but not something I would look for. Maybe this should be consumed in sauna.

Hansen (6569) - Assentoft, DENMARK - APR 9, 2010
Yellow and clear. Has a white head, mostly diminishing. Light, harmonic aroma, sweet and faint hoppiness. Flavor starts light sweet and finish is moderate bitter. Dry texture.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2009
Medium white head. Paleish yellow body. Grassy malty aroma. Dryish malty sodaish taste with corn and hop notes. Mid-bodied. Dry peas and grass aftertaste with corn notes. It’s not really bad, but not good, either. (0.5l bottle, unreadable, Tallinn.)

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 500ml Bottle - Golden in colour. Malty and grassy aroma. Malty taste with hints of vegetables and grain. Inoffensive, but bland.
