Ungstrup (29171) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2012
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of cardboard, honey, and some malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of cardboard, malt, and wet hay, leading to a dry finish.

yngwie (13214) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle. A small, white head forms over a clear, golden body. Lots of butterscotch in the nose, with pale malts, some generic fruityness and a little caramel. It’s rather thin on the palate, nice carbonation. The flavor is more on the toffee side than the butterscotch side, but still it isn’t very pleasant. A little bitterness in the end. Certainly not a very pleasant one. 120218

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2012 Tap (The Brewery, Tallinn) (6:2:4:2:8=2.2)
Nice grainy aroma. Dry palate, drying even. Vey messy in the mouth. Golden, fizzy head. Sharp carbonation. Finish sacchariny. gets way worse as it warms. Tick this one quickly...
Rerate: Tap (ditto) (5:2:4:3:9=2.4)
Sweet corny grains. Vegetal, odd bitter tang. More corniness.
Earlier Rating: 9/7/2010 Total Score: 3
Tap (Alus Arsenals, Riga)
6 grainy aroma, but also slightly vegetal.
3- Light gold. Initially large fluffy head, settles to a ring.
6- Slightly vegetal hoppy first taste, but a full malty body too. A little milky.
3 Full smooth palate, pleasant carbonation. Big vegetal hoppy finish.
12 Very solid flavoursome lager.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 18, 2011
On keg at the Alus Arsenals beer restaurant in Riga. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma of lemon, bready yeast, caramel and barley. Similar flavours with a little lemon linger. Very thin with a foamy mouth-feel, very low carbonation and light CO2 prickle.

BeerSkull (1234) - SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2011
Sweet malt aroma with a strange flavoring similar to stale honey. Sweet malt taste with a weird flavor (probably honey) and a dull bitterness in the aftertaste. Rather distasteful!
