Sold as Hovikelpoinen juhlaolut. Looks like a pale lager, minimal head. Aroma is grassy hops, mild malts and a hint of citrus. Taste is a bit watery, grassy hops, lager-like maltiness. Thin and okay carbonation. Light bitterness. Rather okay and drinkable.

50 cl, bottled. Pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma: Grainy, pale malt, honey. Mildly grass. Taste: Medium sweet, enjoyable mild bread bitterness. Grassy and herby hops. Palate: Quite light body. Noticeable, a bit stingy carbonation. Good pale lager. thellgren (1100) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012
0.5 l bottle @ some local foodstore in Helsinki. I didn’t expect much and it didn’t look anything special. But I liked the taste very much. There was some fruitness combined with the bitterness of the hops.

50cl bottle, BBE 11/2012. Poured pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma is grassy hoppy and malty, slightly sweet. Flavor has bread, grass, grain and honey. Light bitterness. Drinkable, quite OK, a fresher bottle would have been better. Beerheart65 (1503) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2012
Aroma has grass, lots of finnish-type malting. Cear golden, thin white head. Watery, thin feel, low carbonation, dry finish. Finnish lager, with nothing special. VastActiv (7413) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2012
0.5l bottle from local market. Golden color with small head. Grassy aroma with some hops. Taste is sweet with some honey and grass. Easy to drink, nice casual beer. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2012
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Golden color. Aromas of honey, citrus and grass. Honeyish and grassy flavor with some citrus and hint of old bread. Light to medium body. Somehow this does not taste as crisp and bright I expect from a lager. TET (3133) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2012
A golden colour, white and quite weak head. Aroma is strongly malty and quite sweet, some grassy hops and bread. Taste is malty, honey, sweetness, mild grassy hoppyness, that slightly dries the taste, some herbs in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, slippery and nice to drink. Pure and malty beer, but more bitterness and courage would be needed.
