Rather light, but has good flavor. Not at all like most Euro lagers, does not have the tinny taste or harsh bitterness that they so often do. No pronounced hop flavor like American beers, but a nice easy bitterness to it. NOt a completely memorable beer at all, but I could definitely see myself drinking this regularly if I moved to Finland.

11.2oz dark brown bottle. Freshness date on side of label.
My sister and brother in law brought this back (and others) from their trip to Finland 3 years ago. I just located my notes yesterday.
It pours a shiny, clear coppery gold with a nice foamy white head on top. Some sticky and patchy lace cling to the glass.
The smell is of a clean and crisp meadow. Distant flowers and herbs.
The taste of light grain and white bread come to mind. The metallic and slightly citrusy hops are a little weak. A bit more pellets in the kettle would have done the trick.
I could have drank these all night, except I only had the one.
