Nikolai Vehnä (Wheat) Lager is, in terms of its aroma and flavour, a pleasantly fruity lager whose wheat and hopped aroma - used in its manufacturing with barley malt - impart a particularly brisk mouthfeel. The can’s background pattern depicts a letter, written in 1819 to the Imperial Committee for Reconstruction, in which Nikolai Sinebrychoff, the founder of Sinebrychoff’, sought permission to build his brewery on a site in Helsinki. Every can bears Nikolai’s signature. Ingredients: water, barley malt, wheat, starch, hops, aroma. Gravity: 10.7 % Plato, color 8 EBC, bitterness 12 EBU

yngwie (16990) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2009
Can, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, golden beer with a white head. Fruit caramel and a little butterscotch on the nose. Perfumed, citrusy and some tropical fruits. The flavor is much the same, but not as good and interesting as the nose, even though both are sort of mediocre. The fruit caramel found in the aroma is missing in the mouth. A bit thin on the palate, finishing perfumed and slightly bitter, with tropical fruits as well. Quite nice aroma, but the rest is pretty mediocre. 090822

jeverszeuge (647) - GERMANY - NOV 10, 2009
kräftig pilsfarben mit mäßiger schaumbildung, deren halbwertzeit gering ist. der geruch ist dezent süßlich und getreidig. de antrunk ist wässrig-dünn mit süßlicher beinote. zur mitte wird es leicht hopfig, zumindest, wenn man genau hinschmeckt. der abgang ist auf entsprechend dünnem niveau ausgewogen malzig-hopfig. die dose ist noch das beste am ganzen. der zutatenliste entnehmen wir u. a. weizen (im lager?!?), stärke und aromen. besonders letztes erstaunt - wie dünn würde das bier denn ohne aromen schmecken? fazit: ami-dünnbier ist dagegen ein doppelbock. viel schlimmer gehts nimmer.

Rune (12357) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2009
500ml brought home from Kilpishalli in Finland. Very clear golden, heading towards amber, in body appearance. Mostly diminishing, off-white head. Smell of mid-sweet, grainy malts. The flavour is a mix of corn, malty acidity and earthy malts. A few bitter ending notes. Somewhat tame and flat. Drinkable and alright for the style (shared with Eva, Tromsø. 12.09.2009).
