CanCrusher (510) - Ilirska Bistrica, - OCT 31, 2012
Canned. Clear, golden yellow colour with creamy white head, that sits down quickly. Aroma of corn, grain, vegetable. Taste goes from sweet to the bitter aftertaste. Bitterness is similar to bitterness of something burnt...

It is not getting any better with years. Used to be malty and hoppy when compared to standard Premium of theirs. Now it is just slightly higher abv, and I suspect that it just the sticker difference anyway.

330 ml can on board of Estonian Air. Pours clear, yellow as lemonade. Thin head stays for awhile. Aroma is slightly malty, some bread together with wet cardboard. Taste is soft and malty, quite fast finish and not much of aftertaste to speak about. Slight hop isomer bitterness is also there, but only slight. Quite drinkable, with softer mouthfeel, only a bit of plastic. I have had a lot of this stuff in the past as this is the flagship of one of Estonia’s two largest breweries - and I preferred A LeCoq Premium over Saku Originaal. I guess it still feels drinkable, although I would have it only in extreme conditions when choice is severely limited.

A bit stronger malt hop profile on the Nose and Taste than i expected. Nothing too surprising, and easily forgettable, blah but not ugly.

hens (481) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - OCT 15, 2013
0.33L can. Medium yeast and hop aroma. Dry, metal can, mute hops and sour malt. Good carbonating and easy drinkable. Nothing special.

KoNrRiI (387) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2013
0.33 can. Medium-sized, white head, pale yellow liquid, standard issue. Sweet aroma with some corn, hops and grain. Typical pale lager taste, mostly sweet with some tiny hop bitterness, again corn and grain. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation. Finish is relatively smooth as for a commercial pale lager, there is some dough and vanilla in it. Overall not a bad example of its sort, still does not impress.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1325) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 10, 2013
5.2% it shouldn’t cost more than a euro. Crystal clear yellow with fizzy white head. Very grassy aroma. Ok mouthfeel, crisp bitter lager. Not really getting much from it, it seems well made but dull.

330 ml can. Aroma is sweet with corn, grain, malt and some metallic notes. Taste is sweet, corn, grain, malt, alcohol and metal. Not too great
