Surprisingly not crowded on Saturday evening. Real ale and StaPa on tap. Nothing special to mention.

My favourite place in central Helsinki, the feel of a proper pub with a more than interesting selection of stuff on tap. The house beer was rather nice.

Nice pub with a lovely patio. Great place to enjoy a sunny Sunday afternoon in Helsinki. Nice selection of beer and friendly staff. Nice selection of Finnish brew including the Malmgård Black Door H.O.D.A. 20th Anniversary. Wouldn’t mind going back here.

Small, and has a "local" feel to it. OK, yes, that means it’s not at all pretensious and even a little scruffy. Very friendly and helpful staff. Always an interesting selection, occasional festival, and almost always a real ale. Occasional entz too, but I’ve not been to one since seeing Bryn Jones play there years ago.

I would give it a higher rating were it not for the incessant loud music that drowned out converasation. Mainly lower strengthbeers (to 5.5%) and very central but with a little more effort could become special.

Old rating:One of the places to get real ale. Usually they have also at least one Stadin Panimo brew on tap. This is one of the "fish restaurants" (Kalaravintolat) chain bar.
Re-rate: Nowadays quite nice tap selection with some Finnish micros - also rare ones. Usually few new ones on bottles too. Staff knows about beer and real ale is always in good condition. They also expanded the place and it is now more airy than before. Points up as this is certainly Top5 place in Helsinki.

(Visited March 2015) Nice pub, in old-fashioned brown wood. Quite a large place, with the bar to the right of the entrance, and drinking areas all around the bar. Service was friendly and efficient. Around 20 taps with a good mixtures of Finnish micros and imported beers, from around the world (mainly the traditional beer countries), of good quality. I visited on a Monday evening, so it was quite slow and far from crowded. Finnish ice-hockey play-offs on the TV. Definitely worth a visit, I’ll be back on a more busy evening.

A great English style brown boozer in the centre of town. A great selection of draft ales from around Europe, great staff, good prices and solid wifi. A decent bottle selection too. What more could you ask for?
