Zarkam (335) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
500ml bottle from a supermarket in Vyborg, enjoyed from a tea glass in a hotel room, light clear gold colour, small white head, aroma is cereal and grass, taste is very balanced, medium body, fairly mild aftertaste with some nuttiness. Actually way better than I expected, nothing interesting really but above the avereage European bulk lager.

djoeye (889) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2013
0,5L bottle 4.8% abv and 12’. From supermarket in Kremenchuk UA. Scents of hay, hay in a barn, hops, mild meadow. Tall fragile head fast diminishes. Leaves some bent patterns inside the mug. Body straw yellow, tiny tiny bubbles. Tastes hops, bitter malts, then sweeter malts, smoked chestnuts. Alright mouthfeel without watery black holes. Aftertaste as rye bread, dark chocolate, and overall a refreshing nice lager, when served chilled!

Serving type: bottle Aperance- Pours a golden yellow with a nice white head and good lacing. The head had an average retention level Aroma- Grassy and grainy. A very very slight skunky smell T/P- Taste is very light to almost nothing. Overall- Drink ability was okay, it was almost like drinking nothing

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 bread, grass, herbs, dough, clear golden, at first small white head, disappears rather quickly, medium bitterness, dry bitter finish with some malty sweetness but the hops stay on top. Good well-balanced beer, crisp and clean

CanCrusher (510) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle 0,50L. Clear, golden yellow colour, with small, frothy white head. Heavy malty aroma of grain and straw, earthy yeasts and cardboard. Light bitter taste turns into light sweet aftertaste. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Decent lager, better than I expect.

Bottle from supermarket in Rethymnon. Pours clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma of boiled vegetables, burnt plastic. Taste is light sweet carbinated water,watery thin palate. Forgettable.

Gurthnar (1227) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle. Aroma rather hoppy, and not very good at that. Clear yellow colour. Stable head. Taste worse than their low alc. Sweet, stale, oxidated beer. Some low ambiguous bitterness. This is really bad.

SVD (405) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2013
0.5L can at home, given by a friend who went to Russia, anyway i don’t see why this beer is given such a low scores... it isn’t that bad, just regular beer, a bit sweet but it doesn’t have anything bad to it...

I reckon they filled the bottles right out of the Neva. This beer is very watery and slightly chemical. Not that good.
