A bit hazy golden beer with a long lasting white head. Aroma is sweet malty with some fruity and grassy hoppiness. Taste is smooth sweet malts with some fruits and pine, maple syrup maybe. Very smooth mouthfeel and finish. Liked this one.

12 oz. can from BevMo. Clear gold color with a good white head that lasts and leaves lots of lacing. Floral and grassy nose. Lightly sweet floral maltiness with an assertive grassy hops finish. Light, well carbonated. Great balance with just a bit of sweetness and a dry moderately bitter hops finish. An excellent light lager. Love the low ABV. Leini (2079) - SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2015
Clear golden body with a medium white head. Light bread and grass. Pretty straight forward. hohops (1115) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Appearance is clear and light, golden, loads of carbonation, a big fluffy white head which clings a bit. Aroma- wheat, corn, malt, hint of rice, hop undertones, cereal. Taste- crisp hops, quite a firm bitterness, malty undercurrents, hint of creamy malt, citrus and spice. Fizzy mouthfeel and a short finish.

Clear and golden in appearance. Surprisingly dense white head for a lager. Aroma has resin and grassy hops, thus reminding of German Pilseners. The taste is dominated by barley malt, which is supported by a medium body and rich bitterness. Medium carbonation. Despite relatively potent hopping, I’d prefer to have a bit more in the finish. As such, it is not a good session beer nor sufficiently interesting for serious tasting. kalervo (1035) - FINLAND - JUN 4, 2015
Kontiolahdella 5/2015. Enjoyable, tasty lager. Well balanced, lots of body and hops compared to most lagers. Kauge (2127) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 30, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2015 Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 1.2017. Pale straw colour with minimal haze and off-white, slightly creamy foam. The head drops fast, leaving a film and very little lace. The nose strikes at first as an abundantly hopped lager, not unlike so many others with lots of straw - but then after it’s been sitting for some minutes a more interesting character starts to reveal itselft. The aroma is somewhat milky or creamy, and also spicy and herbal - a curious mix. It tastes of straw, indistinct herbs and some peachy fruity notes with perhaps a drop of citrus and a tiny bit of honey sweetness. Smooth soft texture with very thin but active carbonation and herbal bitter finish. It’s not bad but I would (knowing I shouldn’t) probably make less of it without the accompanying texts. tsd08460 (1261) - Marshall, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Another try: Bottle from a Viking Line ferry. BB 3.2017. Noted some sweet white wine aspects I’d missed earlier. Interesting. It’s quite pleasant for a lager - I pushed up the overall score by a notch.
Aroma: hay, bread, JPC1524 (228) - Devon, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Appearance: clear gold, white head
Taste: light sweetness, lightly bitter,
Palate: light body, creamy, average carbonation, bitter finish,
Not your typical lager. Immediate hoppy bitterness attacks the senses but mellows quickly.
