A small brewery in Finland has launched a NATO-themed beer to mark the Nordic country’s bid to join the Western military alliance.

芬蘭一家小釀酒廠推出北大西洋公約組織(NATO)主題的啤酒,做為這個北歐國家有意加入西方軍事聯盟的紀念。

Olaf Brewing’s OTAN lager features a blue label with a cartoon version of a beer-drinking medieval knight in metal armor emblazoned with NATO’s compass symbol.

奧雷夫釀酒廠的OTAN拉格啤酒的包裝除了有藍色商標外,還有一個穿戴金屬盔甲、喝著啤酒的卡通版中世紀騎士,其胸口處還有北約的指南針標誌。

The beer’s name is a play on the Finnish expression "Otan olutta," which means "I’ll have a beer," and the French abbreviation for NATO, which is "OTAN." The North Atlantic Treaty Organization has two official languages, English and French.

啤酒之名大玩雙關,不僅意味芬蘭語的「我要來杯啤酒」,也意味北約在法語中的縮寫。英語和法語為北約的兩個官方語言。

CEO Petteri Vanttinen described the new lager as having "a taste of security, with a hint of freedom."(AP)

執行長佩特里.凡堤南形容,這款新的拉格啤酒有著「安全感的滋味、自由的含意」。(美聯社)
