Kobracai (106) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Clear golden colour. Aroma of fruit and grass. Taste is slightly malty but watery. Finish is on sweeter side. Body is medium body and carbonation strong. Better than the weaker sibling but still a bit boring. Cheap on Finnish tax free ferry. Under 1€.

Malty flavours, grains. Palate: Near medium body, average carbonation. Refreshing, mildly dry. Decent pale lager, not bad.

MarkoNm (2311) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 19, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a medium sized frothy head, white in color. Aroma is quite mild, pretty neutral and just some grainy notes. Tatse starts with some sweetness, later nicely balanced by mild bitterness. Nothing great, but drinkable. Light and crisp. Decent.

Splitenz (368) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
I’m sure this is a good "getting piss drunk before the hockey match" type beer, but I just found it dreadful. Industrial, it tasted machinery and blood (metal). Avoid!
