UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 Draught @brew pubako (167) - Turku, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2007
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)
Amber. Sweet and malty aroma turns into quite bitter hoppiness in the flavor. Not especially summery. jookos (7046) - FINLAND - AUG 17, 2017

Golden ambery clearish. Malty, bit grainy murky nose, light herbycitrussy notes, old leafy. Meddish bodied, dry caramels, grainy malty, old leaves. Feels like a munchener of some sorts, not very fresh fruity at all.

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. spporras (259) - FINLAND - JUN 13, 2007
