3.08/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: light gold color, perfect clarity, a thin layer of sudsy white foam, poor head retention

Aroma: light floral hoppiness, light malt, some grain, touch of sulphur

Flavor: even maltiness balanced with a slight hop bitterness, a touch of herbal hop flavor, a slight tanginess, finishes dry w/ a grainy aftertaste

Mouthfeel: medium-light body, relatively low carbonation, crisp

Overall Impression: A colleague of mine from Finland brought this beer for me to try. This is a good lager. Definitely well-crafted. Doesn't knock my socks off, but not every beer should do that anyway! Wouldn't be a bad one for a long drinking session. Enough flavor to make it palatable, but not to the point of making it stand out from the crowd.

I approached this beer with strong prejudice; after tastings of delightful Chritmas Porter and awful Bock from the same brewery what could I expect of standard pale lager? But this lager is good, believe me or not.

It's aromatic, with welcome hoppy and herbal notes well-woven into malty smell.

It's tasty, with a near-perfect balance of pale toasted malts and hops, enriched by spicy accent. It treats your mouth with care and respect, surprises you with big hoppy finish and leaves wonderful bisquity aftertaste.

Recommended!
