Kobracai (200) - FINLAND - JUL 12, 2016
As I remember it, didn’t differ from the usual Karjala III. Maybe if you drank it while Finland scored it tasted better.

djoeye (5411) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2013
33 cl btl 4.6%abv from Joulupukki @ Kilpishalli. (exp.020114) White standing head. Golden body, some light brown in it. Lacework. Malty scents. Taste; malt, malt, wood, malt, "caramellic hops" (or just sweet hops). A little metallic to palate. Ending with more malt and modest hops, a little dry bitterness into it. Overall seems close to that "Aura" they have, with extra malt.

Nijstrom (280) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
330ml bottle. Golden colour with a small white head. There are notes of malts and grass in the aroma. Medium maltiness and mild bitterness in the taste. Light-bodied with a thin/watery texture and soft carbonation.

VastActiv (7734) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2013
Can from local market. Originally rated 11042012. Colour is clear golden with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Grain and malts.

Leighton (22812) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle at a ChrisO tasting - London. Pours clear gold with a big, fluffy white head. Pleasant doughy malt nose. Light sweet flavor with crisp dough and cereal. Light bodied with average carbonation. Light sweetness to finish with more basic dough, cereal and faint straw. Decent pale lager.
