Bottle. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Grainy malty aroma with hints of fruits. The flavour is malty and grainy with fruity hoppy notes. Better than average Finnish pale lagers. FatPhil (16359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 22, 2010
330ml bottle (Alko)MikeKeller (955) - Kemi, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2010
Rich grainy aroma, some husks. Pleasant carbonation, smooth palate, smooth palate, and full retronasals - dusty and vegetal hops. Taste also has come citrus elements, and also a little of a metallic bite. Finish is full and grainy, with more vegetal hops. Not quite crisp enough to be a pilsner, but that’s OK as it’s full bodied instead. The long finish is pleasantly bitter.
Bottle from Alko
mickut (276) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2010
Golden beer with white head. Grainy malty aroma. Sweety taste is quite funky. Medium bodied, not very summery but still a decent brew.
Bottled. Pours clear golden with white head. Taste has a very light bitterness, aftertaste is a bit stale. Aromas have grain, hay. The finish has some cooked vegetables.

Bottled (Alko)mikkopen (1172) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2010
Deep golden color, small white head. Aroma is mostly grainy and herbal-dry yeasty (similar to some German hop extract beers). Same herbal hoppyness (old oregano) dominates the flavor, underlying is some sweet maltyness - decent body, thanks for 5.5% ABV. Some lingering soft bitterness in the aftertaste. Clearly better than average Finnish bulk, but as a German style pils, just an average guy.
330 ml bottle. Clear golden yellow colour, thin white head. The aroma is malty, with some notes of vegetables and grassy hops. The flavour is malty, grainy, with a mildly bitter grassy-hoppy finish. Nothing special. TET (3072) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2010
Golden beer with weak and white head. Malts, grass and some unpleasant cabbage in the aroma. Biscuity malts, some sweetness and hint of bitterness in the flavour. Balanced and nice to drink. Summer beer without anything interesting but instead of something unpleasant nuancees in the aroma. Not like this, disappointment. liinis (1773) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2010
expected a little more from a summer beer. quite basic lager but the bitter hops save it from being totally forgettable. Lalli (243) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2010
Bottle from Alko. Golden color with medium head. Aroma is rather malty with tones of hay and grass. Perhaps a bit more bitterness from hops than in your average Finnish lager. Decent brew but nothing spectacular.
