Rated on 20110617.
Pours golden color with small head. Aroma of hops and lemon. Flavor of lemon and some mild malts. A slightly more bitter lager, nothing more.
Pours a clear and yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and hops with citrus and melon. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness with some bitterness. Overall an average beer. anders37 (27588) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2012

(Bottled, rated 2011-06-18) Almost clear golden with a small head. Strongly citrusy-aromatic nose - close to being dish-washing-liquidy - but also nicely pine-resiny. Crisply hoppy flavor with lots of both aroma and bittering hops for a pale lager. The finish is even astringent in its dryness. On the other hand, the honeyish maltiness is balancing the flavor, making the body stand the hop power better, and avoiding wateriness. Quite light body, though, with slightly fizzy but lowish CO2. Reminds me of Kievari Humalainen, but with less stuffiness typical of low-ABV hop bombs. The "Nordic" remains a mystery to me, though. bierkoning (13813) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2011

(Bottle, Grand Hotel Hörnan, Uppsala, Sweden, 17 Sep 2011) Golden colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with grainy malt, citrus and grapefruit. Malty, hoppy taste with fresh notes of grainy malt, citrus, grapefruit and a generous bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Medium body. Tasty, refreshing, well-hopped lager with high drinkabiity. Quite nice. TET (3280) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2011
Golden beer with a weak and white head. Aroma is fresh and quite strong, lemon, sweet malts, citrusfruits and red berries. Taste is biscuity, some berries, and surprisingly, lots of wooden and also some lemony hoppyness. Quite light to drink, but not watery, quite nice. Positive lager, lots of bitterness and flavours, more sophisticated touch would be made this even better; succesfull brew. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2011
Bottled (thanks laiti!). Golden colour, small foamy white head. Aroma is fruity and floral hops along with some slight maltyness. Flavour is a big time floral and fruity hoppyness with a very grassy bitter edge to it. Richly hopped lager.
