1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
0,5L glass bottle, ABV is 4,5%. Pale golden body, small flat head. Aroma has grains and CO2. Dry chalky taste with mostly grains. Short sourish finish. Too watery - if the body was fuller then it would probably be somewhat drinkable but now you get a combination of blandness and weird sourish off-tastes which is not a recipe for a good lager. Very bland and therefore bad.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(16.9 oz bottle, Vavilon, St. Petersburg). "Off-malt" aroma, same in taste, albeit with a fluffy white head. Short, off-hop finish. Very much unenjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale golden color with a fine white head. Looks ok. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an average carbonation. Decent balance between sweetness and bitterness. Herbal hoppy and a bit wort-ish malty flavor. Decent thirst quencher in the sun.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle from Stockman, Tallinn - shared with Cunningham at the Tallinn beach sessions. Fruity, buttery and somewhat grainy aroma. Goes down fairly easy on a hot day at the beach. Sweet, grainy and not much flavour, but drinkable enough when it’s cold.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Clear pale yellow beer, white head. Sickly malt in the aroma, industrial hops and water. Flavor is thin, malts, paper notes. Nasty finish with oily paper, malt, and mildly acidic grain. Ugh.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pale yellow color with small unsteady head. Aroma of malt with unpleasant notes. Taste is lightly malty sweet, papery and some unusual notes again, artificiallight bitterness. Finish is short. Bad one.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml bottle - thanks Marduk!
Desperately pale yellow, brief white head. Sweetish pale lager aroma, some jam, strawberry and raspberry. Thin palate. Lots of papery retronasals. Some seetness, some chemical metallic aspects. Finish has some dirty oily rags, maybe fusel alcohols, and other horrors. Afanasty.
