Hartwall (Royal Unibrew) Reviews

As a previous reviewer noted, this is an inexpensive IPA in the Swiss market. This is a review of the beer’s malt and hop qualities. - Malt: a rather long roast produces almost an amber colour. - Hop: modern IPAs are characterized be abundant aromatic hops. This beer has a great deal of hop, but they are obviously added during brewing - bittering hops - not added after brewing when the floral hop will remain in the beer. Bottom Line: Though not really an IPA, I liked the bitter finish and the rounded malt character. Love the retro ’stubby’ bottle and playful label design - I will buy again - good value.

Can. Quite a typical, bland non-alcohol beer. The flavours are mostly those of sweet malt.

Robe blonde et limpide. La mousse tient assez bien. Arômes céréales et biscuit, notes florales. Goût un peu malté. Rien de plus. Aqueuse. Pas terrible.

I picked up this original bottle at the Adigeo commerciam center, interspar, in Verona. I drank it tonight at Bonfol, before to sleep. It is a classical amber beee, a bit bitter for the style. To begin, the body is a classical and copper painting, thin and white foam, normal carbonation. The taste is with hop, touch of malt, caramel, plum and bready, a bit sour and watery at the final, not that bad.

Colour is clear gold. Flavor has some light sweetish maltyness with some spicy notes. Not much different from usual Lapin Kulta. Ok gluten free I guess. Light body.

Kolor miedziany, klarowny z delikatnymi pomarańczowym refleksami. Piana biała, średniej wysokości tak samo trwała, redukując się tworzy gruby kożuch i spore zdobienia Aromat owocowy, cytrusy i tropiki. Smak ponownie owocowy, minimalnie kwaskowy, ale tutaj pojawiają się delikatne akcenty karmelowe, nie przykrywają jednak mocnego smaku owoców. W tle żywica, która tutaj jest tylko lekko zaznaczona. Goryczka delikatna, owocowa, może nieco trawiasta. Nasycenie średnie. Piwo ma średnią pełnię i wydaje się że to trochę za mało.

Bottle from Italian supermarket. Hop and caramel on the nose but not much of it. Slightly carbonated arrival, malty development with hints of coffee and caramel, quick and a bit bitter finish.

Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso va su luppolo e su floreale. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è apprezzabile. Il cappello di schiuma persistente e voluminosa ha una buona tenuta e sul finale il bicchiere si contorna di schiuma, ma dispersa. La grandezza delle bollicine è media con carbonazione abbondante. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Qui le bollicine sono medio-fini. La carbonazione è abbondante. Il colore è ambrato carico. Il corpo è strutturato non pesante. L’amaro è deciso. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona e lunga. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate. Il finale è amarognolo. Il retrogusto è intenso. In bocca l’aroma restituisce percezioni di miele, frutta secca, resina, pino, agrumi e pompelmo.

Pours clear golden / amber, moderately carbonated, with a finger of a frothy white head that leaves some sticky lacing. Hop dominated aroma with mango and citrus. Tastes quite bitter, malts aren’t the best, they remind of boring macro lager malts, fortunately covered by the hops. Light body, thin feel, average carbonation, bitter finish. Fair enough for a supermarket beer. Not bad.

To spend under two francs for an IPA in Switzerland is unheard of and it is even more surprising that the beer isn't all too bad. A good, fruity aroma and a not-too-bad taste! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottiglia. L’orzo presenta il conto al naso. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una discreta resistenza. La grandezza delle bollicine è media. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Il perlage è formato da bollicine medie. La carbonazione è bassa e morbida. Il colore è ambrato. Il corpo è pieno. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata. La persistenza gustativa buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva. Il finale è pulito e dissetante. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di caramello, miele, crosta di pane e cereali.

C’est très très leger, pas franchement mal réalisé, mais très peu aromatique ou dense. Cette biere ne propose pas grand chose, de l’acqueux et un peu de houblon.

Couleur ambrée et bien limpide, mousse correcte mais qui s’estompe rapidement. Au nez on dirait une bière aromatisée de type Desperados. Hum... en bouche c’est moins crade que prévu, mais globalement c’est très light. 5 malts et 5 houblons là dedans ? Difficile à croire. Aromatique faible avec quelques notes herbacées et un soupçon de caramel. Amertume pas trop mal en fin de bouche. Pas fameux, même s’il y a pire dans le genre.

33cl bottle. Appearance: White head on top of a clear yellow golden body. Aroma: Faint, but a hint of light malts and light hops. Taste: Sweetish with a light bitterness, Pale malts, and some bitter hops in the finish. Watery thin body , medium carbonation. Just one of so many industrial lagers. (backlog rating)

Basic Finnish lager, though one of the better ones. Aroma of malt . Taste: mild herbs, grass and minerals as well as grains and lots of bread. It is fine, but nothing too exciting.
