wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, - OCT 23, 2011
Copper glint and a mild caramel aroma backed by grains with a touch of lemon. Sweetish malts take the lead, outpacing soft bitterness and scratchy carbonic acidity. Nimble body and sugar-creamy texture.

DraftDodger (884) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2016
Helsinki 23/5 2016. 50 cl can from S-Market. Very red can with a howling rooster. Pours clear golden yellow with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam with lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is sweet. A little caramel in there togethers with wet cardboard. Quite grainy apart from that with some lightly sour notes. Low carbonation and slightly thick palate. Taste has okay balance between malty sweetness and bitterness. Fairly unpleasant bittersour aftertaste with some burnt rubber thown in. Not an altogether pleasant experience - but I like the red can with the rooster.

orange, reddish colour with a small head. ARoma is very weak. Some malty sweetness and a bit of hop bite in the taste. Basic stuff.

TET (2460) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2015
A nice, copper colour, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has malts and bread, some caramel. Overally mild. Taste has bready maltyness, fresh wood, some bitterness in the end and that’s mild and herbal. Almost medium bodied, could be smoother. Very malty, should be more complex and more aromatic.

Marduk (5380) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2015
500ml can (Kamppi). Clear dark amber color. Small size, beige head, stays. Faint orange marmalade, sweet, flourish, malty aroma. Papery, caramel, biscuits, dull hops in taste. Biscuits in aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Soft bitterness.

FatPhil (12779) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 23, 2015
500ml can (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Very caramelly aroma, some herbal hop hints. Simple sweet malty body, undergrowthy bitterness, hint of mushroom. Simple, but quite drinkable. Palate fullish and sweet, but a bit dead.

nihtila (2614) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2015
13.3.2014. Copper colour, medium head. Not very tempting aroma, metallic bulk lager with some cereal and slightly hoppy aroma. Basic taste with slight grassy hops. Slight British style but with bulk lager taste.

panzerwolf (249) - FINLAND - JAN 28, 2015
Was kind of surprised it wasn’t too bad. A taste of malts and hay, a little bit of sweetness and a very brief bitter bite.
