1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft, 50 cl. Clear golden coloured beer with nice white head. Nice aroma of hops, grains and some fruitiness. Taste of hops, grains and bad tasting malts, a bit metallic and industrial. Light bitter finish. Disappointing taste, not in accordance with the nice aroma.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
470ml somewhat cool-looking bottle from a store at Torfyanovka, Russia, brewed at Baltika st. Petersburg and labelled as Holsten Premium, but I’ll rate it here as the abv matches and I doubt there is much difference to warrant a new entry.
Clear sparkling yellow colour, small fizzy white mostly vanishing head, small amount of lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and hay with light to moderate grassy hops. Taste is initially lightly sweet and acidic, turning into a lightly bitter but a bit longer than usual cheap lagers finish. Light to medium body, slick mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nowhere near amazing but among the better basic lagers on the Russian market.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, 500ml, not sure where it was obtained. Yellow gold with fizzed white head. Lightly roasted cereal malts up front, a light metallic hint, some damp cardboard, CO2 notes. On the close there is a herby, slightly grassy hop note. It is what it is.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml can. (Penny Markt) Mainz, Germany.
Enjoyed from a can in a park by the Rhine river...
Metal, malt and mild grass in the aroma.
Grassy hoppy and malty flavour.
Easy-to-drink. Not the worst.

On tap and bottled in Germany. Fresh pilsener. Simple beer that you enjoy on a summer stroll . Light and refreshing. Simple as most of the entry level pilseners. Not a bad beer. I actually miss it sometimes.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy but weak white head. A potent hop aroma, on opening the bottle, this soon calms to a mild fruit aroma plus a hint of malt. Dry mouthfeel. A tart hop flavour is matched by a dry biscuity malt flavour, both lasting into a lingering finish.
