2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Pale greenish-golden with a stable white head; sweetish corny-grainy nose including a distinctive metallic tinge; pretty bland sweetish flavour, hoppy traces hardly detectable, light to medium bodied; slightly drier and a bit more bitter in the still sweetish-corny finish. One bottle is enough…

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml bottle from a convenience store in st. Petersburg. Clear light yellow colour, large frothy mostly vanishing head, little lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and brad, light floral hops. Taste is initially moderately sweet and slightly acidic, turning into a light bittersweet finish with a chalky feel and a hint of alcohol. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. A bit too sweet to be refreshing like the usual bulk lagers and doesn’t have much character either. Palate isn’t too bad but still better to be avoided.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a very pale yellow with about a finger of white head with a medium retention.
The aroma is sweet malts with some grains as well.
The taste starts sweet, almost a tiny bit too sweet, but continues with a mild bitterness. The finish is slightly metallic, but still drinkable.
Not the best one, nor the worst.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
The beer starts quite sweet, Not very special and not really good. Far to sweet and artificial for a pale lager. The mainpart is subtle still artificial sweet and a bit bready-grainy. The aftertaste is medium, bitter-chemical and unround.
--> a bad example of a pale lager. Not really recommended! --> 4/10/3/4

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 It might be nothing special. It is as well nothing making nervous. Soft combination of malt and a little hops. Somehowe balanced. A feature - weird aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Botella de 500ml. Vaso Lager. Saboreada en jul´12. Color pajizo pálido y apariencia cristalina. Espuma blanca de burbuja mediana y corona que se disipa con lentitud. Aromas cítricos con toques herbáceos. Leve olor metálico. Sabor moderadamente cítrico y paladar granulado. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación media-alta. Malteado suave y amargor cítrico en el intermedio que permanecen hasta el seco final. No tan aburrida ni pesada como la mayoría de las Euro Pale Lagers. Sin ser la mejor que he tomado, tampoco es la peor.
500ml bottle. Lager glass. Enjoyed on jul´12. Pale straw color & crystal clear appearance. White, medium bubbled, froth. Slowly dissipated crown. Herbal & grass touch, citric aromas. Slightly metallic odor. Moderate citric flavor , grainy palate. Light body, medium to high carbonation. Smooth malts & citric bitterness in the middle lingers into dry finish. This one is not boring neither fat as many Euro Pale Lagers. Not the better I´ve ever had but not the worse either.
