Looks; white dusty tall foam, some lacings, straw golden clear body. Aroma; fruity caramel malts. Taste; caramel malts, white bread, butter, grains, fruity hints. Normal on palate, slightly dry. Finish; bread n grains. Not bad, just a boring finish. Pint can 5.2%, b@Rimi Pärnu EE, enjoyed@RateMeet@Rune’s 18mar2014.

Zarkam (439) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2014
500ml bottle from Tallinn, clear light yellow colour, small fizzy mostly vanishing head, little lacing. Moderately grainy aroma with some bread, light to moderate floral hops with a hint of pine. Taste is initially light sweet and acidic, turning into a lightly bitter moderately long finish with a slightly chalky feel. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Not the worst of the Estonian bulk lagers, somewhat more robust body. Not very interesting anyway, working selection as a 60c costing sauna beer anyway.

Classical eurolager. Appearance is the only positive thing - pours really clear an pale yellow. Otherwise - low aroma, low taste, quite carbonated.

SperkeleForce (565) - FINLAND - NOV 30, 2013
Can 33 cl (A.Le Coq Premium Export). Pours golden with fast vanishing lacing white head. Taste is grassy, hay, grains, floral, buttery. Not too bad for bulk lager.

jann3 (117) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2013
Pours clear and very pale yellow. Fizzy white head, that disappears quickly. Lively carbonation. Light malty aroma with some fruity notes. Thin and watery body. Taste is slightly malty and sweetish, almost no hops. Simple and drinkable "bulk-lager". Nothing wrong, but nothing special either. (0,33 l can, best before 28.10.2014, poured in a Spiegelau Pilsstange -glass.)

KoNrRiI (475) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2013
0.33 can. Typical, clear, pale gold color and a medium-sized, white head. Common aroma of pines, grass, corn and some cereals, a bland hop-malt mixture. Taste is also rather banal - cereals, straw, and corn, touch of malts as well. A bit more body than a usual lager, oily texture and average carbonation. Finish is just as simple and uneventful. Overall the beer is a typical example of a commercial lager, nothing special about it.
