marcotetta (41) - - OCT 10, 2016
Grainy and bready in front, followed by light grassy and floral hop notes, a crispy bready/caramel flavors that you expected from the style with a tiny warm note. In mouth has a medium body with moderate-low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turns into a creamy crisp finish, high drinkability .

thellgren (891) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2016
0.5 l bottle from Alko Hakaniemi, Helsinki. Apperance is pale and clear with a nice head i.e. like Helles. Taste is Helles like - light and just a hint of bitterness from hops. There is also slightly alcoholic palate. Very close to 4,7% or 5% ABV lagers but this has hefty 6.3%. Dangerous if you are thirsty.
