minutemat (5256) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, - FEB 9, 2014
330ml can. When I first drove to Finland aged 22, I bought a crate of this stuff and although it was a touch sweet and unoriginal, it still tasted amazing to my young tastebuds, just because it was Finnish. Nowadays, it still tastes pretty boring but will always remind of those days.

Smell of starch, paper, some malt and hops. Golden colour, white head. Aroma of hops, paper, starch. Surprisingly pure flavour, albeit very light body and one-dimensional. Lightly bitter, medium carbon. Half watery palate.

Nonshaugen (591) - Fetsund, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2017
50 cl can. Clear, golden, thin white head, low to medium carbonation, nice lacing. Pilsner malt aroma. Mouthfeel is smooth and a bit dry, low carbonation and bitterness. Flavours follows the aroma, pilsner malt is dominating. Refreshing, but thats all.

caribou43 (950) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - FEB 12, 2017
I bought this beer at the beer of the world in Geneva and I drank on the train to go back at home. In my point of view, it is an average lager, not the worst that I try in my life. The taste is particulary malty, bready, herbal side but there is relatively few hop, a bit metalic and watery, thin foam and gold body, ok during the summer.
