COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Finnish export version of Höga Kusten, lower in alcohol.

The bridge between ale & lager.
The town of Sollefteå in Northern Sweden is famous for having one of the highest coastlines in the country. in 1857, inspired by the bridge leading into the town and crossing over the River Ångerman, brewmaster August Zeunerts created a beer that would also act as a bridge; one that would bring lager and ale together in a smooth, refreshing blend. Still brewed, over 150 years later, Zeunerts High Coast or Höga Kusten, is this beer. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do brewing it. Skål (Cheers)!

Nice bright color, medium head which stays nicely. A mix of lager and ale. Medium carbonation, pretty basic taste, nothing special. Better than average market beers.

500 ml can. Pours clear deep golden with mediumsized foamy off-white head. Mild aroma of bready malt, grassy hops and mild earthy notes. Flavour of sweet malt, maize and butter. Light bodied, low to medium carbonation and watery palate. There´s not much finish. Boring and bit too sweet.

Aroma has hay, bit apple and butter. Is bit stuffy. Clear copper whit short head, bit lacing. Taste is midly bitter. Has also some nuts and bread. Not bad malting. Medium body, light carbonation, quite soft texture. Overall nothing special but ok.

Marko (3894) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 21, 2011
Oooh yeah, this one’s "all mine", bought in Finland, shared with ogivlado. Not sure but a thanks to a friend who carried some of my beers to Croatia might be in order, so a "thanks Mišo!" goes here. Anyway. Golden body, full and dull. The same 2 adjectives can be used for the malty nose, polleny/flowery in a bad way. Empty sweetish, vaguely polleny taste, slightly oily. Better than the nose, overall hardly good, but not particularly bad. Unless you look at the style, then there’s just no excuse.

Can from Tbone, thanks! Deep golden color. Grain and raspberry sweets in both aroma and flavor. Thinnish. Apple. Bland beer.
