2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from a small market in Firenze. Pours gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is more hoppy than bready. Near med body. Flavor is bready with noble hop. Itís rather clean - thatís a plus - it is somewhat bitter - thatís a plus - but the flavors arenít above average strong. Thatís a minus. Itís drinkable, if nothing better is available.

500ml can (Rimi, Tallinn)
Aroma is ______ (insert words later if some aroma appears). Maybe a hint of something medicinal or menthol. Maybe that was one of our socks. Some ok retronasals, a little estery. However, on swallowing itís utterly awful. Chemical and astringent. I want to scrape my tongue. Very shitty lager. About what I expect from Van Pur.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden colour with a thin white head. The nose is fairly fresh with a bit of light sweet pale malt. A touch of light noble hoppiness along with a bit of sweetness. Itís a simple, but reasonably tasty brew.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is a little skunky with light grass and malt. Pours gold with a decent head and lots of bubbes. Flavor is also a little skunky sweet with some grassy hops and a crisp finish. It was nice on the deck after being out in the heat.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Clear gold color with a nice large-ish white head. The nose is toasty with a nice light malt note and some biscuity qualities, not too husky and a touch of clean hops. The flavor is clean and light with a brisk clean finish, more toast and light umami and hops in the mouthfeel. Light, maybe a little underhopped, but itís very approachable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Bright gold body with a huge white fluffy head. The nose is very grainy with some green beans and also potatoes. The taste is doughy and with a sticky mouthfeel that makes it seem like nearly eating some light bread along with hints of bologna. There is also some old carpet and peanuts in the finish. Lightly carbonated, this one is easy to drink, but not the best tasting.
