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)!

FatPhil (9005) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 14, 2011
500ml can (K Supermarket, Finland)
4 Dirty caramelly aroma, but mostly bland even when less chilled.
2 Caramelly, brief head.
4 Messy mix of caramel, a little toast, and some strange esters.
3 Smooth palate, decent carbonation. Actually has a reasonably grainy and bready finish, and even a tingling hint that there were hops in the production. Slightly spiky, though, from concentrate rather than full buds.
7 Well, it slips down easily enough. It’s not so much an altbier as being a just a polotmave lager. The watering down may reduce any nastiness, but it reduces any beeriness too.
