On a speedboat tour of the Archipelago in Helsinki, Finland, we stopped for lunch at a small 300-year-old villa inhabited by an older couple. As part of the tour, and as a way to generate income, they showed us around their lands and treated us to lunch. Along with the delicious homemade sausage, homecooked bread, and salad, they had light and easy drinking refreshing beer for us...Koff I.
The pour yields about 1 fingers worth of head in a relatively well carbonated beer. At such a low gravity, the malt content is fairly simply and light, and that lends to the color of the beer, a light clean straw colored hue. The head retention is fleeting, though in a beer with such low alcohol, there were likely not enough proteins produced to form, much less retain, a stellar head.
The aroma is light and refreshing with a touch of grassy and floral hop character. Not bitter at all, as there seem to be only aroma hops in there. The flavor is similar, as floral and light grassy touches complement a light and sweet grainy flavor.
Thin on the palate, but disappointingly slightly under carbonated, this beer is certainly a great refreshing brew to enjoy on a hot day. Moreso, it goes great with homemade bread and sausage, especially so close to its birthplace. No doubt that this beer would not be the same were one to find a bottle outside of Scandinavia.
