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.

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.

vinivini (1696) - BELARUS - FEB 2, 2017
Directly from can. Vague bready malts and spicy hops on nose. Light body. Extremely clean taste. Bready and spicy. Light bitterness. How do they do it. Why do they do it?

Can. Pours clear rich yellow with medium sized foamy white head, malt aroma, high carbonation, slightly sweet malt taste, thin body, abrupt finish. Generic lager.

Villyzzz (283) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2016
Just overall bad macro lager. Weak grassy hops that almost smell like piss. Some malts on the taste with basic cardboard feel. Too watery. Even in Finland there are many better macro lagers...

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2016 33 cl bottle. Clear yellow with a medium white head. Light malty aroma of bread, hay and lageryeast. Taste reflects the aroma. Light bodied, with a lightly sweet texture. Average carbonation. Low bitterness.

Tezminator (123) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2016 One of the better "bulky" lagers in Finland. There is nothing offensive, though nothing particularly memorable either. Malty aroma. Taste of hops.

mice (886) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Kirkas kullankeltainen olut pienell, osin silyvll vaahdolla. Tuoksu makeahkon maltainen ja ruohoisesti humaloitu. Maku maltainen ja pehme, hieman katkera loppupuolelta ja aavistus humalan aromiakin jlkimaussa. Bulkkilagereiden parhaimmistoa.
