4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful beer, nice big foamy head. Yellow with some orange notes and leaves lacing behind. Scent has sweet malts and grapefruit, very hoppy scent for a lager, but promising for a hophead like me. And what a taste! An explosion of hops, there is grapefruit and citrus and at the end there is this dark pine forest lingering in my mouth. But there is still some sweetness in it that does keep this beer on lager side, because it almost turns into American Pale Ale with those american hops. But awesome beer anyhow!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color ámbar turbio, espuma crema densa y duradera. Aromas lupulados cítricos. En boca es ligera y tiene un rico sabor lupulado afrutado, con un final amargo equilibrado. En realidad, trae al paladar sabores conocidos pero en formato lager. Un buen trago.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber-gold. Medium soapy head with some retention. Nose is a nice blend of tropical fruits, warm maltiness, hints at caramel. Fruity, citric-hoppy taste with malt, blackcurrants and caramel. Hops, water and grapefruit in the finish, hoppy-bitter aftertaste. Body on the thin side, medium carbonation, slightly dry palate. Seems pretty sessionable.

Amber, off-white head. Hoppy nose with malty notes. Taste is resiny, citrusy hops with some malty notes. Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation. On the thin side, but somehow the thinness works quite well with the hoppiness. I agree with the "APA meets pilsener" comment.

Light refreshinly fresh citrusy pale ale no great depth pineapple and lychee tones with a smooth bitter finish. I was expecting a lager but its a hoppy USA style pale ale. Would be perfect for summer BBQ

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn) (7:4:5:3:11=3.0)
Looks great, tight creamy bubbles, forms a huge frothy persistent head. Good colour for a pils, not too pale. Slightly blackcurrenty and citrussy aroma, some plasticness too. More plasticky taste, alas. Slightly watery palate, pleasant carbonation. More blackcurrent in the taste too. Nice pils, a bit nettley. Does go downhill after the aroma, alas, but definitely not bad.

sweet mango and peach aroma. crisp carbonation. light palate, simple sweet malts, and tasty fruity hops. finish is mostly fruity, but just a touch bitter too. very easy drinker, good for the strength.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Drink Baar, Tallinn) (7:4:7:3:13=3.4)
Really nice fruity hop aroma, sweet and syrupy. Cloudy orange, persistent head. Medium palate, a little watery, but with a fullness of taste too. Quite harsh carbonation. Improves after an agressive swirl. Finish is packed with whole hops. Lovely.
