An average "iron curtain" lager; not terrible but not especially good either. This one poured a clear gold colour with a small white head, and no carbonation of note. The aroma seemed to balance hops and malt. Taste was acceptable but not noteworthy, being that of just a basic lager.

yay! Will this be good or a total disaster????
Gots me a nice clear gold beer with a thin white head and thin spotty lacing. Sweet but not overly sweet on the nose, apricots (not sweet), pear, fresh hearty bread and good hops! The taste is also good. Mild hops, some sweet grain / bread. Soft east with the mildest of spice and a touch of bitterness on the finish. Light medium bodied, smooth with good carbonation. The bitterness becomes more evident on the finish when warmer.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 10, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2010 500ml bottle (Limaty)
Clear orange. Floral non-descript aroma. Light lager palate, a touch sweet. odd plasticky taste, but even the iceberg lettuce I’d just had had more bitterness - in fact I could still taste the lettuce after the beer. Worth ignoring.
Rerate: 3 Slightly perfumey, a touch mentholly chemical aroma.
2 Pale, tiny head
3 Pretty potent chemical blast. Later, it’s papery too
1 Fizzy palate, wacky chemical mess. Finish chemical and metallic
4 A real mess, heading towards good old fashioned nasty. Not lacking taste, simply lacking, and lacking a sense of taste.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2009 Draught. Clear golden colour. Very small white head. Lagery aroma. The flavour starts off a little watery, but turns malty before fading away. Low bitterness. Slightly thin mouthfeel. Not exciting, but OK clean. 5 3 5 3 10

Draught at the brewery museum. Mild vinous aroma. Almost clear pale yellow colour. Very small white head. The flavour is mildly citric, but not bad. Faintly creamy aftertaste. 5 3 5 3 9

500ml bottle

I tried this beer on May 20, 2009 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a clear gold colour with a thin white head. The aroma was grainy malt with a hint of hops. The mouthfeel was quite weak, almost watery with mild carbonation. The flavour was grainy malt with tons of metal.

NJBeerman013 (1043) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2008
500 ml bottle. Pours a light golden in color with little to no head. It is a fairly calm beer with little carbonation. It has a grassy aroma and a metallic/grassy hop flavor. It is fairly non-offensive compared to other lagers from the region. Decent but not good.
