Plastic bottle (as Rainbow Kotikalja/Svagdricka). An unclear brown-amber colour with a medium high, beige head. An aroma of bread, sugar, grass and fruit. The taste is heavy sweet. A medium body and thin texture. rosenbergh (11868) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2013
1 500 ml plastic bottle as Rainbow Kotikalja/Svagdricka. BB 03/11/13. (Prisma) Helsinki, Finland. taunusmies (385) - FINLAND - FEB 1, 2013
Dark brown colour with a small off-white head.
The aroma is rye bread, malty sweetness and
The flavour is dryer with rye bread, mild tartness and hints of citrus.
Not bad but not traditional kotikalja either.
Murky brown colour, minimal off-white head. Taste has a lot of artificial sweetness, lightly malty. A hint of raisins and rye bread. Thin, watery mouthfeel, fizzy carbonation.

1,5l plastic bottle. Hazy dark reddish brown beer. Thin, soda-like head is white and diminishing. The aroma has rather nice rye maltiness, sugar and a hint of berriness(maybe red currants). Hops are much absent in the aroma. Quite pleasant, mellow rye-bready malty finsh. The taste is sweet, even sugary, but also minor sourness of rye and very light bitterness in the finish. Light to medium bodied, soda-like and carbonation. Slick texture. Better than I thought. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2008
Deep amber colour with a dense off white head. Malty, fruity and vague grassy aroma. Light caramel sweet flavor with a vague grassy note. liinis (1791) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2008
