Can, bought in Austria. Hoppy aroma, some yeast notes. Plesant bitterness in finish, quite good.

Quack-Duck (8596) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 26, 2015
bottle from Heinrichs 3000 Kornwestheim. Clear pale yellow with a tall and long-lasting white head. Good hoppy aroma, quite aromatic, grassy and slightly citrusy. Light and elegant malty base delivering some aromatic hoppy flavours, grassy, with a touch of hay. Much much better than expected. Not your average German macro Pils, this is quite fragrant and aromatic, not just dry and bitter.

Lore (1476) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 19, 2015
clear bright golden colour, huge, ok white head; aroma and taste of grains, some grass and herbs and cardboard; not really good...in fact, not good at all

inbirraveritas (1350) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 3, 2015
Canned, 0.33 l. Clear yellow one with a medium sized white head on it. Sweetish, grainy nose and aroma escorted by cardboard and wet grass, mouthfeel is thin. Dry, dusty/grassy finish...

pityu (20) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 12, 2015
Canned - Pale yellow colour, small quickly disappearing white head. Malty aroma with a little grassy hops. Thin watery body, average carbonation. Easy drinkable, but not good at all, a typical european mass produced lager.

suurjuust (1805) - ESTONIA - JUN 30, 2015
Clear pale golden, fluffy white head. Nose is grain with mild sweetness, some paper. Flavor is grainy malt, mild sweetness and a low dose of hops plus dirty grass clippings. Not undrinkable, but the dirty grass takes it down a peg or two.

thirstyrabbit (1433) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 27, 2015
Can. The design looks nice. Typical light golden body with a minimal head. Grainy aroma with a low level of sweet hops. Sweet grainy taste with some dried bread in the finish. Watery and underhopped. But no major off-tastes. Good enough for gulping but nothing to analyse here.

Marduk (3991) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 24, 2015
500ml can. Clear pale golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Malty, papery, corny aroma. Malty, starchy, hop extract, papery taste. Hop extract and malty aftertaste. Watery mouthfeel. Not first class horror, but quite bad.

Kauge (696) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 17, 2015
Can. BB 27.08.2016. 4.8%. Pale, clear yellow colour. Actually, I see a lot of tiny floaties. The head’s big initially, bright white, bubbly, leaving some lacing. Grassy on the nose, also grainy with an off-putting plasticky note. Artificial. Tastes almost horrible... very grainy, kinda sweetish, with a grassy and plasticky mid-taste. Unenjoyable dirty-grassy-bitter sensation in the finish. Crisp on the palate, body lower side of medium. This ain’t no good! I can’t believe this hop extract brew is rated higher than the surprisingly well-done Wolters Pilsener I just had (19 overall points vs an underrated 15).

FatPhil (10892) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 23, 2015
500ml can (Maxima, Tallinn)
Very bland pale lager aroma, a touch sweet. Very pale, brief head. Extremely bland taste. Watery palate, a bit fizzy. A huge load of boring nothing, but not actually bad.

Tac (148) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Pours thick head and golden body with nice lacing. Aromas of some corn, cardboard and mud, boiled vegetables. Taste is bland, cardboard. Low in malt, mildly sweet and bitter. Poor beer. Maybe bad batch after all.
