0.33 l bottle from K-Citymarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Aroma is malts in a Pilsener way. Looks like pale clear lager with a head. Taste has also some barley malts. Bit on the sweet side, not too much though. This is OK during summer.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
The beer is finished with a light bright yellow color. The foam is white with medium bubbles. The foam disappears quickly, leaving no trace. Aromas of sweet malt. Is a little lemon and cookie dough in the aroma. Even a little honey and straw. The smell is a bit anonymous and thin. Tastes buttery malt, apricot, lemon, a little sugar. Towards the end, a little honey and straw. Also a brödig taste throughout. But rather thin flavors. Light body, slightly bitter and medium carbonation. A little sweet and very thin.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
On opening there’s an immediate yucky limey stink, you can only imagine how much worse that is on pouring. In the glass, it’s very corny. Taste is sweet, corny, and watery. Very poor macro-like lager. Finish is a little bit like a sweet perfumed soap, more corn, some paper. Ugh.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the GJBF in Osaka 2014. Their lager pours a clear straw gold with a bready malt nose, solid but unexciting. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a sugary sweet flavor makes this seem like a macro adjunct lager. Meh.
