500ml can, shared by djoeye. Bubbly, airy white head resting on top of a clear, pale golden body. Modest smell of grass and grain. Moderately flavoured with pale malts, sweet apples and some bland citrus. Mild bitter endnotes. Slightly floury palate. So and so(Tromsø 26.03.2014).

0.5L can. Light hop and mostly corn aroma. Rubber, metal, fruit candy, tiny malt and yeast. Metallic finish. Totally crap. Never again.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
500ml can from Tallinn, clear gold colour, small fizzy head with only remnants of it left after a few seconds, virtually no lacing. Aroma of grain, cookie, a hint of grass along with some hints of solvent and chalk. Taste is initially slightly sweet and acidic turning into slightly sour and bitter finish with a metallic feel. Medium body, lively carbonation oily texture. Truly wonderful, boring and bad at the same time, reminds me of the kind of very cheap East-European lagers that I got my first ever 2-day hangover from. Still possible to drink, but wouldn’t recommend.

0,5l can. Very pale yellow color. Thin white head, has some white bits in it. Quite disgusting. Typical pisslager. Nothing to talk about. Never again.
