FatPhil (9363) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 29, 2011
500ml bottle (Stockmann, Riga)
4+ Simple light lagery aroma, touch of huskiness, but pretty bland.
4- Very bold caramelly red, small white head.
5- Simple bready taste, with some bitter huskiness too.
3 Unexceptional palate, pleasant carbonation. Not too thin, not to sweet or heavy. Finish is fairly bitter with noble hops, a touch biting occasionally, assisted by the carbonation. A little grassy perhaps too, and definitely there’s some minerally aspects too.
9 Fairly unexciting, but a fairly full flavoured lager. Would massively benefit from being unfiltered and fresh.

heavy (2133) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 21, 2012
0.5 l bottle Cuso sent away, thanks! It poured clear red-brownish body with medium sized, slightly off white head that went down fast. Biscuit and caramel aroma. Bitter hoppy and sweet toasted malt flavor, herbs, toast and caramel with a touch of metal. Lighter to medium body with quite long and sweet finish, but not particularly good. I have expected more of this one.

Marko (3947) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 21, 2012
Courtesy of Cuso, thanks! Poured a nice dark bronze body with a small, slightly off white head. The nose is extremely light, malty, with notes of coffee. There’s a light bitternes first in the taste, herbal, and the mouthfeel reveals a light case of overcarbonation. Caramelly notes. Generally hardly unpleasant but distinctly unimpressive.

DSG (5829) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Zvika’s place. Thanks Ariel. Nice clear deep red. Aroma of malt, cardboard, a bit of butter. Sweetish flavor, malty, a bit caramelly, a bit toasty, with a bit of buttery hints. Light to medium-bodied.

Bottle @ home. ambrata carica limpida, con schiuma beige fine abbastanza persistente. aroma poco intenso di malto, caramello e ed un lieve sentore erbaceo da luppolo. Gusto amabile, di caramello e malto, quasi thč nero zuccherato. Poco amara. Non molto corposa, abbastanza carbonata, rotonda, poco calda. abbastanza armonica, non molto carbonata.
