Marduk (2794) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 1, 2013
500ml bottle. Golden yellow color. I love smell of Saaz in the morning, but not in this kind of artificial way. Sugary, citrus also in aroma. Mint, peppermint, grainy notes in flavor. Mild bitterness turns into disgusting repulsive puke very quickly. No thanks.

Tap at Klub malých pivovaru. Medium white full duration head. Colour clear golden. Aroma yeasty, grassy, earthy, Taste a bit watery, yet quite drinkable. Light hoppy bitterness, very light malty. Uninteresting. OVERALL acceptable session beer, yet not very good. Watery.

BlackHaddock (3905) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2012
Green 500ml bottle, best before 13th June 2008, drank on a wet and cold Jan night 2008 in Shropshire. Poured into a small (0.2 litre) Veltins Pilsner stemmed glass three times. Looks OK, light golden hue to the body and a white foam head which tries to stay with you, but can’t manage the whole experience. Pilsners have no huge aroma, this one had a sweet smell, real candy sweet, too sweet for me. The beer tasted sweet too, dry and sweet are the two main features this beer has. Not a lot of anything to sing about in the mouthfeel stakes, watery for a 5.0% beer and no great redeeming factors for me to pontificate about. Just another lager to add onto the huge list trying to sink us British under a sea of imported tosh.
