MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Bottle. 1PT. 09 oz. Pours pale yellow with nearly zero head. Aroma has a vegetable quality to it, lightly unpleasant at times but with enough hoppiness to save it and a sweet maltiness that comes through once it gets enough air. The palate is fairly good, medium carbonation, medium in body. Flavor is somewhat sour cabbage, some carrot, mildly bitter but after a sweet and malty front. Finish is light and almost okay, it leans towards something nicely hopped and fairly dry but gets screwed up with a couple off flavors I can’t define. Good bitterness, good palate, everything else is lacking. It gives me that malt liquor type corn flavor I’ve grown to hate. Better than the last few beers off the same shelf though. Just a touch more hops might have covered up all that vegetable yuckiness. I guess I got quite a ways to go before I kill the eastern bloc section at Topp’s because I’ve not even gotten through the first half case. Hope this one will continue a streak of unskunks.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Bottle.Small very fizzy white head that quickly dissipated, spotty amounts of lacing, fast rising carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. Nose was hoppy, semi-sweet and some grassy notes. Flavor was hoppy, bitter, semi-sweet, and somewhat harsh tasting.Mouthfeel was spritey and medium in body.Did not enjoy the taste of this beer due to it being somewhat harsh tasting, boring nothing exciting about it IMO and not one that I recommend spending your time or money on.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Bottle at tashi’s Lithuanian Fighting Lager tasting, 5th Oct 2008. Another generic Baltic lager. How many more can I take? Not offensive, just very dull. Aroma is not so good.

Vells (620) - LATVIA - NOV 29, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2012 Clear light golden with medium to thin white head. Lacing OK. Aroma.. thers not much of it.. water, bit malt and bit hops. Nose very poor. Light bittersweet. Theres nothing much pleasant about this beer thou at least theres nothing much unpleasant. If your aim is to have a looong night and get drunk with cheap beer.. go ahead. Good for refreshing purpose.

visionthing (2570) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
50cl can from Riga Airport. Pours clear pale golden with a short lived white head. Lightly fruity aroma with pale malt and hints of cooked vegetables and hops. Medium sweet with a mild, but somewhat decent bitterness. Still a fairly standard pale lager. Utterly boring, but drinkable.

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2006
Bottled. An anaemic pale gold coloured beer with some beige bubbles for a head. The aroma is corny with some buttery notes and doesn’t draw you in. The taste is thin, with just a little grassy hop. Inofffensive but very dull.

On Tap. Thin white head, diminishes fast. Clear golden colour. Aroma is sweet and fruity, little bit metallic. Taste us mildly malty and little bit bitter. Pretty thin.
