Bottled. Pale golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is grass, malts and hops and some notes of earth. Flavour is very much the same. A rather bland and watery brew. TEJA (3203) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2008
Thick foam. Much of hops aroma. Nice maltiness with a small bitterness. Made as a summer beer for large consumtion in warm summerdays. raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JUN 20, 2008
Bottle 0.33 l. Pale golden, smallish fizzy and disappearing head. Nose is grassy, hayish, some barnyard and maltiness. Flavor is initially fruity, fresh and slightly sour and acidic (in a finnish lager way), but turns into a long, subtle hoppy aftertaste. And the aftertaste is beautiful, rarely have I experienced such a long aftertaste. Interesting mixture of fruitiness and hayish hoppiness. Not exactly bitter at any point. mjs (7590) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2008

Pale gold, small head. Simple hoppy aroma, but fades after a while; also some sweet fruit. Taste is quite creamy, with a little fizzy carbonation. Creaminess segues into a reasonable mild maltiness, with a tangy hoppiness that is quite fruity but rather brief. Ends a bit sacchariny. Quite interesting lager.

(Bottled) Clear golden with a small, bubbly head. Aromatic, herby-grassy hops with some honeyish maltiness in the aroma. The flavor also has herby hops, decently balancing buttery-caramely maltiness, and a dry, somewhat bitter finish. Almost medium-bodied with quite smooth carbonation. Very nice for a Finnish lager/pilsener.
, was 6-3-6-3-12=3.0) Clear golden with a small, lacy head. Aromatic, herby-grassy hops with some honeyish maltiness. Herby hops, some berries, and slightly sweet malts in the typical Saimaan Panimo flavor. Hints of metal, with a reasonably dry and bitter finish. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Better than I expected, with a reasonable amount of flavor and hops.
