33cl can in a sauna somewhere in Tallinn. Pours clear pale golden with a white head. Pretty standard industrial pale lager. Sweet and lightly malty with hints of fruitiness and vegetables. Quite easy to drink and works pretty well as a sauna beer. (2012-11-17)

Zarkam (531) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2015
0,33l can, clear gold colour, small frothy white mostly vanishing head, little lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and hay with light floral hops. Taste is initially slightly sweet and acidic, with light bitterness combined with the sweetness in the finish. Medium body, slick mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Not interesting at all and a bit underhopped even for a bulk lager, technically flawless as they usually are still.

0,33l tölkki. Hailakan pissankeltainen. Tuoksussa hyvin kevyesti pehmeää mallasta. Maku mallasta, Vähän humalaa. Hyvä tasapaino, vaikka onkin kevyt. Ei vetinen.

Nevalainen (247) - FINLAND - AUG 31, 2014
A clear pale color with white quickly desappearing head. Aroma of malt. Taste is missing some character. Lively carbonation, but soft feeling anyway. Drinkable.

Can, 15/08/14, thanks sageh. Pours a regular yellow lager with a small white head that doesn’t last long. Aroma is grain, cardboard. Taste is mostly cardboard, light grain. Watery, well carbonated.

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.
