The smell reminds me how beers smelled when I was a child. Quite strong flavor, not really one of my favorites. Couldn’t taste the advertised honey. teddybeer (4386) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 13, 2012

500ml bottle, as Harald Voima Olut, kindly shared by Finn at a local tasting session. Clear golden body to a lasting, filmy layer. Aroma is earthy with dusty hops, and honey. Sweet honey and caramel malts in flavour as well as hints of grain that continues into a sweet ending. Lack of hops. Drinkable, though (at Finns in Tromsø, 05.06.2012).

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 500ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki) - as Harald (4:2:5:2:9=2.2)Beerhammaren (1837) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2012
Pretty bland lagery aroma. Fairly pale, brief head. Body also rather boring, it’s just a pale lager. No evidence of honey if the alias is to be Just once, I got a hint of a gingery taste, but that was a rarity. Kinda thin, and definitely much more a good pale lager rather than some kind of spice/herb/vegetable. Pretty dull to be honest, these guys can do better, I’m sure. OK, I do like the breadiness. Could be an underrate, but it’s really not selling itself to me at the moment.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (5:3-:5:3:10-=2.6--)
Mashy grains, some husks, some vegetal and leguminous aspects. Way mashier in the taste, plenty of honey hints too, but even more vegetal and very nutty. Peanuts in the finish. Some bitter paperiness, some huskiness, bitter tannins, bit of a bite too. Dullish.
Pours clear pale golden with a quickly vanishing head. Aroma is sweet malts and some honey. Flavor is malts, honey and some herbs.
