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)!

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.

Bottle. Golden color, white head. Slightly hoppy flavor with a malty background. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Could be worse.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2011
Can 500ml (K-Citymarket, Vasa, BB 08/2011)
Pale amber color, good cloudy white head, some lace. Bready malty, a bit sticky nose. Light to medium-bodied. Quite watery. Light caramel, some iron and sweet maltyness. Not the most horrible Swedish bulk lager - probably ok after sauna served icecold.

omhper (23728) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2011
Canned, thanks oh6gdx! Deep golden, faint head. Fruity nose. Sweet with clean, hard mouthfeel and light body. Butterty and lagerl-like, low on hops, dull malt character, near no bitterness.

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2011
0.5 l can from K-Länsiväylä, Jyväskylä. Copper color, long lasting head. The aromas of honeyish and slightly bready malt and some light caramel. Honeyish malty and slightly fruity flavor with hint of herbal hops. Not very bitter, yet some hoppy roughness in finish. Very distant hint of toffeish and nutty dark malt character. Almost like a standard Swedish lager.

Kavu (4187) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2011
Pours darkish amber with a low head. Aroma and flavor are mostly malts. Pretty basic lager even though the color promised more.

liinis (1766) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2011

mikkopen (1059) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2011
500 ml can. Clear pale amber colour, thin white head. Sweetish malty aroma with a hint of grassy hops. The flavour is like the aroma: sweetish malty, with a mildly bitter hoppy finish. Simple and a little dull, but drinkable.

rosenbergh (10681) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2011
500 ml can. Finland.
Lively clear amber colour, small creamy white head. Dark bread (skärgårdslimpa), herbs and malt in aroma. Flavour is notes of grass, malt and hints of metal. Fizzy but thinnish.
