Vells (714) - Riga, LATVIA - DEC 18, 2013
Some maltiness, surprisingly fruity for pale lager, kinda seems apple juice added, almost no hops, bread. Sweet with very light bitterness, bit watery. Didnt taste any annoying defects. Its quite plain, but very drinkable as thirst quencher

As the choices in the hotel bar were either this or Newcastle Brown I thought I’d go for the new rate. I am very glad I did not have to pay because it was a typical bland industrial beer. Fortunately the bars and pubs around Helsinki offered many much better alternatives.

Aroma / Appearance - The pale golden body was transparent and bubbled like a glass of yellowy soda. The stiff white head would not collapse even after a few sips. Lemon juice, stale white toast, and a dash of sourness did not make it easy to continue.

Flavor / Palate - Lemony ginger ale was inoffensive for the most part. Mildly sweet dandelions almost gave it character but then the bland finish ruined even that. Within minutes of drinking it I’d forgotten all about it. It might be Finnish but this is basically just a local version of a boring macro.

visionthing (2792) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2013
33cl can from Rimi Hypermarked in Tallinn. Pours clear pale golden with a small, white head. Aroma of malt with notes of caramel and hints of spices and alcohol. Seems a bit maltier than the usual pale lager, but still not a great experience. Medium to light body with average carbonation. Sweet, malty and a bit caramely with hints of honey. Drinkable lager.

Nice color. Fizzy texture, especially in the crown. Light-medium aroma and taste of malt and boiled peas. Good with meat-filled dumplings and lingonberry jam.
