2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is definetely not what i exptected it to be. Considering its origin, i would think that taste would be a bit more stronger. It feels really light for German lager. That being said, i do enjoy drinking it. While it lacks strong taste and after taste, it is pretty smooth. It has a big white head that tastes great, but unfortunately it disapears fast. Colour is golden, and while it looks really appealing while the head is still present, colour can be a bit unappealing after head has dissapeared. It has perfect balance between sweet and bitter, and it does not bite your tounge like other beers. Almost at times feels little watery. Very conflicted with this beer, at times i love it and yet i can find so many faults with it.

50cl swing-top bottle from M&S, Camberley. A pale golden amber pour with a loose, fast-fading, white head; sour malty grain aroma; soft, slightly sour, sweet grainy taste; and a lightly bitter finish with an unusual spiciness. Rather good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a crystal clear golden amber with a one- to two-finger bright white dense foam head that retained OK and laced OK as dots. Carbonation high and coarse. Aroma of moderately strong sweet malt and grain with no obvious hops. Taste of sweet pale malt which is a bit stronger than other Helles but taste is a bit bland; very slight bitterness. Light body. Crisp, smooth, soft and light with a slight sweetness on the finish. OK.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle at F-Hoone, Tallinn. Pours clear golden with a modest white head. Mild grainy aroma with slightly fruity notes and hints of grassy and herbal hops. Moderate sweet with fairly low flavour intensity and a mild, but fairly pleasant bitterness. Quite okay as a thirst quencher, but hardly anything special.
