Bottled, 500ml pull off cap, pasteurised from Tesco in Winchester. Gold, carbonated white head. Very grainy, cheap malt aroma leading to a sweet, malty, thin body, poor and watery. Little to recommend.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Grassy aroma. Very pale amber, large head. Flavour is sweetish and very grainy, no hops I can detect. Light bodied, overcarbonated and watery. Finishes grainy. Too watery for my taste.

Bottle. Golden with a small head.Cloying sweetness which wasn’t very pleasant. Very much Euro-fizz but reasonable if you are thirsty and not very fussy.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Funny shaped green bottle with a pulltop cap. I haven’t seen one of these on a can in years and never on a bottle. Smells of sugary hay. Clear yellow, medium snow white head, sudsy adherence to the glass. Typical foreign lager flavor of honey and minimal grain, but not sugar sweet as I feared. Slight tart lemon on the palate. Not skunky at all and only a little too sweet. Не плохо!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml can. From Tallinn, Estonia.
Clear golden colour with medium-size white head. Aroma is some fruitiness, malts, hints of hoppiness and metallic. Some goes with the flavour. Some fruitiness (can’t say what), malts and crispy hops. I wasn’t expecting much of this, but I’m positively surprized.
