Thereís not much to choose from in Oulu, so Leskinen is one of the few places you most likely end up at unless you donít want to drink at home.
Selection is pretty limited and part of it is dedicated to staples meant to please the regular bargoers (Guinness etc.). However, at least the last time I went there they had some of the rarer Finnish varieties available on tap.
The general mood of the place depends on when you go there. On the weekend nights, it tends to be absolutely packed and really loud but then again, if you go there during the early hours it can be really enjoyable. The patio is, however, located right next to the busiest pedestrian street in the Oulu city centre which can be annoying to some people.
Service is pretty much what you can expect from a Finnish bar. Friendly and polite for sure, but donít count on the staff initiating any small talk if youíre alone.
I am not 100% sure but I donít think they serve any food here (itís quite uncommon in Finnish bars in general).
Overall, I probably would not recommend it very highly, on the (northern) Finnish average, itís not too bad. If you do happen to end up in Oulu and are feeling thirsty, itís a pretty safe place to start your journey.

Probably the most beer-oriented bar in Oulu. Located at some sort of pedestrian street (along restaurants and more partyish places), it is quite small and humble. Has ten-ish taps, and some bottles. The selection isnít that huge, but Iím told it has a good rotation. Finnish- expensive prices, simple interiour. Seems to attract all sorts of people (not only beer snobs). Food-wise quite meager; a set of ítapasí. But for now, has the only real ale tap in northern finland (afaik).

Definetly the best beer bar in Oulu. Continously changing selection with some rarities. A must for a beer lover in Oulu. Fills up easily due to the size, location and popularity of this place.

The best pub for beer hunting in Oulu. Quite small place with nice ambiance and friendly service. Many changing taps and a real ale tap also. Lots of bottles also and tasty variety of Tapas.

Pretty nice ambiance, full on a Wednesday evening. Knowledgeable staff, friendly service though a bit hard to get service sometimes. A lot of taps with four taps on rotation. The rest are filled with rather dull affairs. Not a lot in bottles, though some of that. Serves tapas. Prices are pretty steep for halves.

This is place to visit when you are in Oulu. Seems that their tap selection rotates quite well and they have well-kept real ale. Some Finnish micros too. Staff is friendly and beer-knowing. English pub -type ambiance.

16 taps, 1 cask. Boring selection although it must be the best in Oulu. Friendly staff. Quite dark and comfy. Real Ale is always a plus. Rugs on the tables.

When visitting Oulu on business, Iíd spend every evening here. I loved it then, and that was before they started having real ales. The atmosphere is very friendly, the staff are friendly and helpful.
