3.14/5  rDev +21.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Full golden color, medium carbonation level, high head that quickly dissipates, some lace (not much).

An unusual smell for a Pilsener-type lager - sourdough with a noticeable hint of alcohol.

Start soft, malty, sweetish. Then the taste turns sharper, disclosing presence of hops and white spirit. Mouthfeel grainy. Bitterish finish and long malty-yeasty aftertaste.

Very drinkable beer. Worth a try.

In Finland we like to call this washing water, because that's what it basically is. Horrible.

Hmm, according to can, beername is simply Koff Export, but taking into ABV 5,2 I think it's the same Koff IV A (but Dort/Export style, not Pale Lager)
Crumbly 1,5-finger head crowns light gold pure body, insignificant lace.
Sourdough and grain smell.
Explosive malty start with clear alcohol imprint reduces to white bread & harmonic hop tints of aftertaste.
This one isn't beer to astonish you.
