visionthing (3773) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2015
On tap at Beer House, Tallinn. Slightly hazy yellow with a modest, white head. Grainy aroma with mild fruity and grassy notes. Moderate sweet with a rather mild bitterness. Something that reminds me of hay in the flavour. Perfectly drinkable, but hardly a beer I would want to drink again.

jookos (3722) - FINLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Tap@brewpub. Pale golden, hazy. Somewhat hayish malts. Malts, malts, pale malts. Lightish body, round mouthfeel. Same doughy yeasty character as the pils, but without the hoppy note. And less bitters. Feels homebrewed, kilju comes, for some reason, to mind.

laiti (7704) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2014
Draught @ the brewpub
Hayish aroma with grainy malt – feels like a basic kellerbier. Flavour is somewhat sweet with grainy malt and peachy tones. Also some butter. Typical easy-to-drink kellerbier. A Dortmunder/Helles? I don’t think so.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 5, 2013
The head is ok, the body gold-brown and cloudy. It smells malty, yeasty, tannins. The taste is mild, tannins, bit yeasty, malty, less hoppy, sweet, fresh. Nothing special but quite fresh. 10/9/9/8/-/9

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2013
Draught @ Beer House, Tallinn. Ligh hazy yellow coloured beer with some very light carbonation and a small white head. Sweeter light hoppy touched aroma. Medium palate. Finish is light short grainy sweet with a longer bread-doughy touch. Medium Helles.

Marduk (4206) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2012
Draught. More clear than hazy, grain golden color. Not much aroma. Malty, filthy, bready, dead hops in flavor. Bland and dead.

kingstoni (1773) - FINLAND - AUG 22, 2012
Tap at Beer House. Mostly clear light yellow color with a minimal head. Looks like a German Pilsener. Malty aroma with some citrus and honey. Slightly sour malty taste.

omhper (21768) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy pale golden, small head. Grassy nose. Dry and fairly light bodied. Crisp with salty, grassy bitterness. Well drinkable.

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2011
(Sampled in the giant barrel at the brewpub)..Dusty green-gold, level top, milky lace. Fragrant, herbal, bush-at-the-bottom-of-the-garden honeyed pine aroma from 3ft away. Soft limey citrus, lemon rind hints dominated by rich tea biscuit.....cornflakes as the condition dissipates. Crisp bitter finish. Tasty and aromatic, but too heavy on the cornflakes.
