HammerTroll (194) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 16, 2014
Clear golden color with small (or no) head. Bready nose, malty aroma. Watery texture, thin body and flat carbonation. Good for a price, around 0,5€ per 0,5l. (Holsten brewed in Croatia with 4,2% ABV, 2,0l plastic bottle)

kuekuune (2) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 24, 2014 does not count
Almost no aroma. Head is plentiful but not lasting long. Fist taste is interesting mix of various flavors which goes down to malt at the end. In all this is drinkable beer but leaves a bit too messy first impression.

bergenbrewing (24) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
Nice clear golden color. Fluffy white head drops away quickly. Crisp and clean flavor and mouth feel. Always a sure thing.

Senap (278) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2014
En traditionell tysk lager. Ganska maltig, begränsad beska. Hm, det finns betydligt intressantare i klassen.

Muggus69 (1108) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2014
OLD NOTES OCT 9, 2003 Quite a sweet yeast smell. Very clear and carbonated when poured into a glass, yet head died quickly (I blame my glass for that though) Quite a bitey hop taste, lingers a bit afterwards. Not really much else to it. A bit watery. Not a bad flavour actually. Missing alot from your standard European style lager.

hens (493) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - FEB 5, 2014
0.5L can, 4.5% abv, brewed in Saku brewery, Estonia. Another 0.69.- € cent surprise, actually shitprise. It seems another under license barrel flush. Clear golden, tiny hat. Metallic hop aroma. Watery, metal, hop and yeast flavor. Watery, malty finish. Booring metal taste beer.

Senka (348) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 22, 2014
50cl can. 15 years ago, this brew alongside Löwenbrau, were considered indeed as fine premium lagers (in Estonia t.i). Nowadays, it is actually hard to find them on the shelves. Decent beer. Was one of my "to go" beers 12 years ago. Pale malt, some distinctive hops, clear water - simple, not over-encumbered taste.

androman (187) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2013 Bought in the local supermarket. Golden transparent color, white head, high carbonation. Fine bitterish taste but nothing special. OK with a dinner.

Tide (1469) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Can from supermarket. (4.5% ABV). Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, grain, malts, salted crackers and a bit of grass. Bitter finish with citrus and grain. Decent lager.
