Cloudy golden with medium sized white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with hints of caramel and malt. Flavour was sweet with malty and fruity notes. Towards the end I picked up some hops which made it dry. TBone (17565) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2009

Clear pale golden color, small white head. Hayish aroma, some sweet malts and buttery notes. Grassy hoppy flavor, sweetish malty backbone. More or less standard lager with some added hoppyness. Not hopeless, but kind of unbalanced.
A 0.25L glass at Olutkellari. Pale head. Pale golden yellow colour. Soft round tatse. Average hoppiness. RedhawkFIN (56) - FINLAND - APR 16, 2009
Draught at Olutkellari, Helsinki in April 2009. Dull and boring Pilsner with some acidic aftertaste. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 15, 2009

Light orange hazy wheaty colour. Thin white head. Initial aroma is eggy farts, but it resolves to something grainy. Has hints of mustard! Taste is a simple combination of light malt and subtle, but quite potent, hops. Great summer beer.

Helsinki, Helsinki. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grassy hops along with some malts and mild citrus fruity notes. Flavour is rather earthy, malty and also has some slight yeastyness. Good balance, but a bit boring.
Draught (Olutkellari,Helsinki) - Golden in colour with a haze. Hoppy and grassy aroma with lemon and hay. Fairly bitter and hoppy taste with malt,tea and lemon featuring. Not bad for the style. raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - SEP 12, 2008
Tap at Olutkellari Helsinki. Hazy yellow, smooth thick head. Subtle nose, some fruitiness. Flavor is also subtle (atleast after Stadin EPA). Fruity, sort of thin, maybe even some lemon. Easy and smooth. Hard to pick up much character. Need to retry this. mjs (7413) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2008
(Draught at Olutkellari Helsinki on 2008-07-11, this beer is unfiltered version Suomenlinna Höpken Pils) Pale yellow. Hazy. Medium-sized dense white head. Metallic and hoppy nose. Medium dry palate with some carbonation. Hops, metallic flavours, fruitiness, some sweetness and grapefruit in taste. Surprisingly soft aftertaste with some bitterness in it. Tranquillity (2336) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2008
Hazy yellow-orange body with a tiny white head. Yeasty and bready aroma. Taste a bit weak compared to a real pilsner but it has a bitter and balanced finish which pulls up the score.
