Senka (1061) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2015
A decent red lager. Comparable to Faxe Red. Was available for quite a short time. Used to drink ti from my Ale A Le Coq goblet. Good times they were. It was actually sold in Tartu nightclubs, and was popular drink.

NOTE: This is not really a rating. I’m converting my old notes over to BR. This is more like "check" for my own purpouses, that I have indeed drunk this beer at the time it was produced.

Brandman (2852) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2010
500 ml bottle. Reddish golden body, white head. This beer has the aroma and flavour of play-doh all over. Pretty dull.

Russo (2012) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2010
Bought at Alcohol Shop in Tallinn. Really nice appearance with a Amber color and a nice and persistent white head. Aroma has some malt, brand, toffee and something else that I could identify. Flavor is pretty malty, but some blend and sweetness on it. Mouthfeel is sweet blend and nothing else.

Rune (11372) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2009
Thanks to Elisabeth and Stefan for sharing a 500ml bottle, airborne from Tallinn. Pours a dense and soapy, beige foam. Fragile lacework on the glassware. Copper-brown body. Just a weak smell of nutty malts. Discreet flavour of butter-like caramel added by honey sweetness. Dry in the mouth. Medium bodied (at a rating session in Tromsø, 27.10.2009).

Hansen (8436) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2009
A medium vienna. Light amber colour, clear. Off-white head, mostly diminishing. Aroma is light bread, toasted. Flavor is moderate sweet. Creamy texture, soft carbonation.

larsga (7316) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2009
Medium offwhite coarseish lasting head with excellent cling. Pretty brown body. Papery vegetable aroma with faint fruity notes. Sweet-dryish roasty caramelly papery taste with chalky vegetable notes. Harshish mouthfeel. Hollow-bodied. Unclean, unfresh palate. Dryish papery caramel aftertaste with toffee notes and toasted rice. Weird beer. Has good and bad parts, and is really all over the place. Ɛ.5l bottle from some alkohoolipod, Tallinn.)
