Kuohu Vaalea Lager

While having a small picnic at a nice finish summer day I tried a Kuohu lager. The beer has about 4.7 % alcohol. The serving temperature was about 8°C. It was poured from a can. The foam wasn’t that stable, it actually collapsed very fast. The first smell wasn’t that good. It had a kind of production smell in it. I also recognised strawberries and apricot, which is a bit unusual for a lager. That’s more the typical flavours of ale. The taste was good. It had a good mouth fullness, that’s what I expect from an industrial brewed lager. The only real negative point is the taste at the end; it’s a kind of tasteless. It’s that kind of beer you would drink while watching a soccer match.
