No snow in Finland for Christmas 2012

Urho III

Do you know Finland? Ever been there? If not you might not miss that much. It's cold, most of the time dark and beer is expensive. On the other hand the girls are pretty and the beer is awesome. Though I suggest to go there. It's a really nice country. This year they might have a black christmas. Yeah; global warming is everywhere.

On my last trip to Tampere, Finland, I brought an Urho III with me. As my stash of beer has somehow grown over the month it wasn't be expected to be drunk soon. But the best before date showed only some days left and so I gave it a go.

Right in the glass, taking a photo in the meantime, the white stays on top of the golden. Smell, smell, into my nose. There is malt, as expected - and some butter, not expected. Drink, drink. The taste is very watery, there is nearly no body. It's kind of a big nothing, no bitterness. The only thing left is alcohol.

There are better finish beers which I have to write about soon.
