Ickily metallic, notable alcohol, a tiny bit of beer, and some chemical harshness. Ugh.

500ml golden can, 5 % version, kindly shared by djoeye. Dissipating chalk white head. Clear straw coloured body. Modest smell of pale malts. Taste of grain and vegetables. Drying endnots, cardboard impression. Lively carbonated. Most of the content went down the drain (Tromsø 18.03.2014).

2finger tight head, some lacings, pale straw golden body. Aroma; apple, spices, maybe even perfume. Taste; mild watery apple juicy cardboard bread dust grains. Much carbonation. Finish; dust grains. Not so good overall, but maybe the bottle is better? 50cl can 5%, b@Rimi Pärnu EE, enjoyed@RateMeet@Rune’s 18mar2014.

Pours pale yellow, with white fizzy head. Aroma is sweet, malty and fruity. Taste is sweetish too, with distinguishable honey flavor. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Simple and unambitious bulk lager. (0,5l can, best before 14.11.14).

0.5L can. Specifical Viru õlu hop aroma(wet paper). Booring watery beer. Low carbonating. Some paper, woody, chestnut. Tastless end.

Senka (800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 5, 2013
50cl can. On purpose bought a can that was on sale. Smells like tin, stale bread and mold. Pale yellow, clear pour. No taste, no palate, no nothing. It is extremely disappointing, what they made with it - I used to be a full bodied pale lager, with descent taste that you actually could remember. DNB

visionthing (3133) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2012
50cl can (4,7%) from a supermarket in Tallinn. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Lightly malty aroma with hints of honey, flowers and cooked vegetables. Quite sweet and and lightly malty with a very mild bitterness in the finish. Slightly better than Puls Classic, but not a beer I feel like drinking again if other beers are available. Reminds me a bit of a more tropical lager, but maybe slightly more flavour.

Marduk (3215) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 2, 2012
0,5l bottle. Pale yellow color. Small head, disappears quickly. Weak malt, grass, grain in aroma. Sweet malts in body, somewhat bitter ending.
