Bottle 0,5L 5,2% from Pärnu, Rimi, Estonia. Embossed clear bottle, beautiful, but a beer should have at least a green bottle, or brown for dark beer. (My subjective opinion). --- . Scents of spicy malts, black crowberry heather, hops. Pours a short-lived offwhite head on a golden bubbling body. Though the last millimetres of head lasts for quite a while as a fine layer, and Taste; hops, carbonation, some sort of sweet-n-sour malts. Palate malts mainly, but has a mild and well balanced bitterness too, and not especially watery. Ends with notes of bread, cardboard, hoppy carbonation. Overall decent pale lager.

Smoth pale lager. Initial batches were oh so fancy. All other times it is mostly on sale. Just a simple lager in a clear bottle. Was popular in pubs and clubs some time ago, and the bottle was also screw-top at the begging. You Could open one with another. Now it is not the case.

ectuohy27 (687) - ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2014
Decently drinkable PL, remarkably smooth and rounded finish, though the taste experience before that is alcohol (surprisingly for a 5.2% abv PL) and water. Nothing ’special’ at all

jann3 (160) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2014
Clear golden color, white and quickly disappearing head. Aroma is malty with some spicy bitter notes. Taste is malty and sweetish, with notes of bread, fruits and even a hint of caramel. Sweetness is combined with some grassy hops. Decent pale lager, but nothing special. (0,5l bottle, best before 22.7.2014)

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

visionthing (3279) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2012
50cl bottle from Tallinn Airport. Pours clear golden with a white head. Light to medium malty aroma with hints of caramel and cooked vegetables. Fairly sweet with a light bitterness in the finish. Medium body. Pretty standard pale lager - ok, but quite boring. (2012-11-24)

0.5l bottle. Very light aroma. Taste is sweet and fruity. After taste is like citrus fruit juice, rather grapefruit. Good beer to drink for meals :)
