Draught. Redcopperish colour, big foasmy white head. Berries and fruit along with malt in aroma. Sweet malty beginning with huge vegetably hoppy finish. Long bitterish aftertaste. Very filling mouthfeel. omhper (25139) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2006
[Draught at the brewpub] Clear amber, small head. Light papery aroma. Fairly sweet with clean mouthfeel and light-medium body. The simplistic malt character makes it somewhat hars, and let cardboard dominate the flavours. A dull beer served in a lovely environment. TBone (17550) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2005

Dark amber color, small creamy tanned head. Nose is yeasty, some berries (strawberry) and hops. Good soft palate. Hops are combined with a bit sweet malty backbone. Nice hoppy bitter aftertaste. Good summer brew (Kesäolut = Summer beer), which should fit to autumn too. (7/3/7/4/14 3.5)
Re-rated 2006 edition
The 1st beer after 3 weeks medical treatment.
Amber brown clear color, steady beige foam. Very bready, slightly yeasty nose. Very typical Koulu-aroma. Very malty, harsh bitterness towards the finish. Bready, malty, harsh hoppy aftertaste. Quite close to what Finnish Karjala-beer used to be. (5/3/5/2/10 2.5)
Clear amber color, good big creamy white head. Stinky toilet aroma with hints of hops. Light bodied, active carbonation. Light caramel, light bready maltyness. Probably nice beer with food, but aroma was odd. (4/3/6/3/11 2.7)
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 Draught (Koulu, Turku) original version (6:4:6:4:13=3.3)rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Rich perfumey aroma, a touch floral. Rich smooth malty body,
carbonation soft. Summer 2010, and the cellar temperature is warmer
than normal, so this is much more flavoursome and aromatic than
normal. Plenty of cakey malts, very refreshing. A touch of sticky hops
in the finish. Lovely fresh lager.
Rerate: Tap (SOPP2012, Turku) - as Toinen Kesä "unfiltered version of kesä" (5:3:5:3:10=2.8)
Sweet fruity aroma, a little sugary sweetness. Slightly sticky palate, pleasantly crisp carbonation. Some slight meatiness, some kidney. Nice bitter hoppy finish, fresh full whole hop flowers - noble, and a bit metallic.
Draught at the Koulu, Turku, Finland.
Clear reddish amber colour with a small off-white head.
Popcorns, mild sweetness and mild malt in the aroma.
The flavour is dry grainy malt and mild berry hops. Blah.

Draught @ the brewpubVastActiv (7133) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Malty aroma with some hops, nuts and a slight feeling of contamination (Koulu house aroma). Flavour is malty with toffee, caramel, some nuts and very slight sourness with earthy notes. Finishes with moderate hops. Good, the sourness does not disturb and actually somehow even suits this beer.
At Panimoravintola Koulu, Turku. Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, bitterness and dryness. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2006
Draught at Koulu. Amber color, small head. Sweet malty aroma (munchener malt). Sweet and fresh toasted malt aroma. Toastiness grows towards finnish along with mild herbal and bitter hop character. Too sweet, good fresh malt character though. sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2006
