MarkoNm (3036) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 19, 2015
Pours a clear amber copper color, toppedwith a rather small white head. Malty aroma, grainy with some alcohol notes and a bit of caramel. Taste is sweet, malty with alcohol plain in sight. Metal feel to it. Not too thrilled about this one.

Braastad (459) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Dark golden, small head Aroma has caramel malts, dried fruits. Flavor is sweet, alcoholy, malty.

SperkeleForce (791) - FINLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Can 50 cl. Copper color with big smooth thick head. Notes of grains, caramel, malts. Slightly better then the lighter stuff Karjala but yet another mass produced lager with just more alcohol in it.

Lovely 50cl can thanks to rosenbergh. Color is dark golden with a medium white head. Body is thin. Taste is medium bitter and sweet. Aroma is caramel, metal, light alcohol. Not bad!

0,5l can from Alko. Pours clear golden with a low head. Aroma and flavor are grassy malts with a hint of metallic alcohol. Surprisingly decent.

Bottle 0.33l from local Alko. Colour is golden with tiny white head. Aromas and flavours: Alcohol, grain and malts. Horrible.

Juusto (40) - FINLAND - MAR 2, 2013
Yuck! Strong alcohol taste. Dull aroma with hint of some fruits. Strong alcohol stinging ruins the palate. Not a pleasant experience to drink.

k0mpsa (3232) - Tuusula, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle at jäähovi, tampere. Clear golden color, small white head. Basic mass-lager malty aroma, some sweetness. Basic malty taste with sweetness came from alcohol, hint of alcohol. Some hops at the end.
