Bottle. Pours clear and yellow with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Light aroma of grain, perhaps carboard. Flavor is slightly sweet grainy. Light bitter finish. Surprisingly rich mouthfeel.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle, bought in Riga. ABV is 4.5%. Pale golden colour, large and lasting white head. Pleasant fruity and flowery aroma. Relatively sweet pale lager flavour, light bodied and thin, hints of fruit and honey, low bitterness. Far from exciting, but not offensive either.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light lager, but very well hopped, making it very refreshing. Quite similar to a North German pils like Jever. For once the commercial description describes the actual beer and not something the marketing detp has cooked up!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
568ml can from an offie in New Malden, 5%, 75 year edition. This was part of a ’buy 6 for Ł5’ deal. How anyone in the supply chain made any profit is beyond me. Anyway… this is golden yellow, clear, pretty much still, small foamy white head with nice lacing. Aroma is lemon juice, jif, estery bubblegum. Wasn’t expecting the frutiness. Body is medium, soft carbonation, smooth. Taste is gummy bears, soft malts, simple sugars, biscuit, a little citrus, touch of spice towards the finish. A bit weird and estery for the style. Almost has some saison character. Pretty interesting.

500ml can. Very pale yellow color. No head. Malty, corny aroma. Weak aroma. Malty, hop extract, corn in taste. Another typical macrolager.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle, ABV 5.0% from a Polish shop on Oxford Road, Reading. Straw with a ring of white head and light carbonation; the aroma is light and floral to start with some deeper herbal notes; the taste is similarly light and floral with a ceral body; and a soft, gently bitter finish. Not at all what I was expecting, a refreshing refined lager, rather than a brash Eastern European one.
