Iznogud (1199) - CROATIA - FEB 24, 2015
Canned, 500 ml from Konzum, Zagreb. Pours clear yellow with short lasting white head. Sweetish malty, hay, grass. Drinkable, but that’s about it.

ruigo (1374) - PORTUGAL - FEB 19, 2015
Relatively neutral, nothing special but not so bad. Drinkable, I guess, with a couple of friends in summer.

SarkyNorthener (2549) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Can from WB Stores, West Bromwich. Golden beer with medium foam head. Aroma of sweet corn and cereal grain. Taste is slightly sweet malts, cereal grain and some hop bitterness. Drinkable.

Brainiac (170) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 6, 2015
0.5l can. Aroma weak, very carbonated. Little hops, waterish body. Short aftertaste. Good for just drinking.

panzerwolf (127) - FINLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Pours pale yellow. A small taste of malts, hay, but overall is left rather watery, leaving no real impression. Metallic kind of bitterness that’s not really too pleasant.

martjoobolut (1132) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 25, 2014
0,5L can (I think the ABV was around 4.5%). Pours clear golden with white head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is sweet, malt, grains, maize. Flavor follows the nose. Body is watery. Overall: bad.

ljthiessen (566) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
Can. Clear pale yellow pour, small white head. Aroma of apple juice and cereal grains. Not a bad lager, a little fruity, grains, not too much cheap corn flavour. Mediocre euro lager.

Diabobale (252) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 11, 2014
Una premium lager di largo consumo soprattutto nell’europa dell’est. nulla di eccezionale

Vells (824) - Riga, LATVIA - NOV 10, 2014
Plain luscious malty, very light grassy hops, bit citrusy. Feels way too thin, but as I am thirsty, this one goes down quite well as thirst quencher - no unpleasant side effects. Light sweetness, with light bitterness in finish. Drinkable

YantarCoast (288) - Moscow, RUSSIA - NOV 8, 2014
Russia-brewed version. ABV is 4.8%. Pours pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is malts, grass and metal. Taste is similar. A bit boring, but I wouldn’t mind drinking a few on a hot summer’s day.
