Keltainen ja vähävaahtoinen olut. Tuoksusa on hieman mallasta ja pahvia. Mieto ja neutraali. Hieman hedelmäisyyttä myös. Maussakin on pahvia. En kelpuuta eteeni toiste.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
One pint, 568ml, can. Thanks to Elisabeth and Stefan for sharing. Clear yellow straw coloured body to a decent, white lacing-head. Very modest aroma of pale malts. Dry fruits in flavour, notes of vegetables. Diluted bitterness to the ending. Flat mouth feel (session in Tårnrommet, Tromsø 18.11.2010).

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Estonian macrolager. Pale yellow, grassy and malty aroma, some grain and malt in the taste. This one has some fairly pleasant hoppiness in the aftertaste though, so it’s not a complete loss.

500 ml bottle. Poured extremely pale golden yellow with white head. Sweetish, grainy aroma. Some weak grainy sweetness in the otherwise watery taste. The palate is quite watery, too. Competes with Bud & co. in the Sex in a Canoe category.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2012 Bottle. Pale yellow body with a minimal head. Aroma has some breadiness but the taste is watery and overcarbonated like many other Estonian macros. At least it’s better than their over-marketed "Premium". 2012 Re-rate: Very pale yellow/green body. Raw and grainy aroma. Taste is light but rubbery. I used to like this beer in the past but now it just has been declining and declining... to the point that it’s now possibly worse than Premium.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
strong lager, a lot of malty sweetness - the relative lightness of the taste is somewhat off-putting since the sweetness could use some heavier base
