larsga (7297) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2013
Biggish offwhite head. Clear deep yellow body with strong carbonation. Strawy earthy wet wood and resin aroma with nutty notes. Dry-sweet oily nutty earthy taste with resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish resiny nutty herbal aftertaste with earthy papery notes. Interesting and unusual, and highly drinkable. Definitely has that Lithuanian style to it. (0.5l bottle, from Stockmann, Riga.)

villevav (445) - FINLAND - MAR 6, 2013
Rather dark for a Pilsener, clearly more american style than traditionally German Pils. The taste has plenty of hops and some sweetness that makes it easy to confuse this with a Vienna or Märzen. Nice one!

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2013
Flaske 0,5l. Påspandert og delt med flere under rateseanse på Tårnrommet 10 Jan 13. Lys gylden. Høyt luftig skum som varer en stund. Aroma av gress med innslag av frukt. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er tung fruktig. Litt mandler. I søtligste laget.

Rune (11123) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2013
500ml bottle by the courtesy of Stefan and Elisabeth. Near-white head mostly diminishing over a clear, dark golden body. Sweet malts and sweaty fruits to the nose. Dry apricot taste added by buttery malts. Mid-dry aftertaste. Strange kind of taste, in fact, but drinkable (shared at a rating session, Tromsø 10.01.2013).

Marduk (6331) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 25, 2012
Tap. Clear golden color. Tiny head, stays. Milky, malty, fresh aroma. Fresh, grassy, malty notes in flavor. Nothing special.
Earlier Rating: 7/27/2012 Total Score: 2.9
Draught. Clear golden color. Small head, stays. Sweet, honey, raisins, some fruityness and breadiness in aroma. Hay, grass, hops in flavor. Mellow sweetness. I quite like it.

suurjuust (2854) - ESTONIA - NOV 24, 2012
Hazy yellow, small white head with filmy retention. Nose is sweetish malt with dusty walnuts, caramel and boiled vegetables. Taste is pretty close to the nose, with more pronounced dusty walnut notes and some more boiled vegetables in the finish. Thin to medium body, soft carbonation. Weird balance, not for everyone.

kingstoni (1961) - FINLAND - NOV 7, 2012
Tap. Medium hazy reddish copper color with a thin head. Aroma of honey and caramel. Quite dry. Tastes like a Kellerbier. Lively carbonation.

omhper (23513) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2012
Bottled, from Stockmann, Riga. Hazy golden, mid sized head. papery and sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Mostly unpleasant cardboard, even if I have a very fresh bottle. No bitterness. Sub par lager.

mjs (6466) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2012
(Draught at Brewery Ôlleklubi, 20120704) The beer poured pale golden and a bit hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had diacetyl, hint of grass and some sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were butter, sweetness, malts, mildly grain and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. Too much diacetyl and sweetness for a pils
