Golden with lively head. Notes of yeast, cardboard, little friuit and caramel. Sweet flavour and no finish.

Svesse (7725) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2009
(Can. Thanks to SaintMatty) Golden yellow colour with brief, frothy, white head. Malty nose with bread and tropical fruit. Malty, slightly sourish taste with noets of bread, pineapple, tropical fruit. Medium body, fairly sweet. Some grassy bitterness in the finish (eventually overshadowed by sweet malt). Better balance than the Luksus sampled at the same time, still not very impressive.

5.2% golden colour with head that diminishes very quickly, slight sweet malt aroma, sweet malt taste, not good at all.

Ernest (7247) - 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.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2004
Bottle. Light yellow pour, decent sized head. Syrup like body, but actually a little bit of a malt base there, which was surprising. Could not get much out of the aroma. Taste is standard bad imported Euro lager, insert tinny, corny, grassy adjective here. But I would rate this one slightly higher than most of my failed lcbo experiments, simply because there was a little more flavour in there. Deep down.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2004
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.......

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2005
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!

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - FEB 4, 2007
From a 32cl brown bottle with no freshness date. Pours a pale straw color with lasting white head. Perfumy aroma. Ligth body, well carbonated, very mild hop flavor, little hop bitterness, sweet corn-like flavor (DMS?). Might be better if very fresh.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2008
Pours golden with small white head. Aroma of sweet malt and some hops. Flavour is unbalanced with lemon coming through..leaves a fizzy carbonation on the palate. Strange unbalanced beer.

The aroma is sweet and malty with paper, grass, soap, flowers, and plastic. The appearance is golden with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is typical for the style. Overall a real dud, I don’t want another.
