thewolf (10785) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Clear golden with a super-nice, staying, creamy white head. A truly perfect looking blonde. Aroma is sweetish, citric, doughy. Light herbal. High carbonation, lightish mouthfeel. Flavour has some pilsner-feel to it at first, citric and sugary, but redeems itself with an okay malty sweetness with a finish with a light vinious finish. Average, but truly pretty.

Golden with a lasting white head. Grainy malt aroma with faint earthy and spicy notes. Sweet malty flavour with fruity character and a touch of spice.

jmgreenuk (3580) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle shared with Deanso. Poured a clear copper colour with a thick white head and broken lace. The aroma is strong and malty. The flavour is pretty much the same. The palate is weak and the aftertaste watery. This beer lacks body and flavour.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2004
(Bottled) Golden lager color with a very small head. Very mild aroma with a hint of sweet fruitiness and alcohol. Sweet, honeyish flavor with a silghtly alcoholic feel and almost no hops. Medium-bodied, sugary and alcoholic palate. A paler, lighter and less interesting version of the brune. Reminds me of the Estonian strong lagers.

On tap. Pours a clear golden with a white head and some lacings. Smells a bit of honey. Sweet and malty with strong honey flavors. Slightly lagerish. Light bodied and slightly waterish. The finish isa boring lagerfinish: bitter with a hint of sourness and some gunpowder hops.
