Ernest (6352) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow, thin density of small particles. Aroma is lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly malty (grain), with a note of solvent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Too sweet, with some off-aromas/flavors.

Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from lcbo. Tasted in dimple mug. Appearance is clear yellow, very light in colour. Light white head. Light aroma - corn, malt amd grain. Mass produced macro hints.... Taste is sweet with a nasty malt beverage finish. My day of tasting ’baltic’ lagers ends with a fiz.......

Cheap, corn sweetener aroma and flavor. Not a drain pour but had to wolf it down. Look at the bright side: it would beat any mass-produced Amerikansk malt liquor!

Dorwart (2391) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2003 Very foamy head of pure white bubbles that does not last long. Ok carbonation. Color is a pathetic of light, pale yellow. Typical light malt/hops aroma from imported lagers. Initial taste is metallic and slightly sour and altogether weak. Finish is bitter with minimal hops. Not a very good beer. Try the porter from Aldaris. Much, Much better!

imdownthepub (10651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2004
Bottled, Pasteurised. Pale straw coloured with carbonated head. Saved for the Latvia v Holland game, sweet malt mash with corn notes and a false hoppiness. Doughy, yeasty, but not disgusting.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2004
Golden coloured. Weak aroma. Sweet flavour with notes of hay. Boring, bland and light.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2004
Clear golden beer with a white head. Mild aroma with hints of maize and hops. Hoppy and citrusy flavor with a good bitterness. Quite flavorfull for a pale lager.

mabjork (674) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2006
Canned. Golden colour with minor white head. It has a seet and malty aroma. The flavour contains a strong taste of malt, kinda sweet with a bitter finish.

hazy pale gold under a medium sized frothy white head. sweet corn flakes aroma. light bodied. not as sweet as the aroma would suggest. sharp biting carbonation. tastes similar to bud heavy with some corn syrup.
