Bottle: Clear, bubbly gold with a small, off-white head. Corn, grain malt aroma. Taste is pretty much the same... Semi-stale grain malt, grass. Probably not bad if fresh... But I don’t foresee a trip to Estonia any time soon to see for myself.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Rated on 7-20-2012 (Bottle) This beer forms a medium sized very fizzy white head that mostly diminishes, yellow as the sun transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is malt, corn and sweet. Ditto for the flavor. The mouthfeel is semi-lively and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer’s flavor did not overwhelm me at all as evidence by the numbers I gave it. It lacks character, aroma and flavor. This beer I do not recommend trying.

Pours golden yellow with a white head. Sweet malts on the nose, some pilsner malts aroma. Not memorable.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with average white head. Malty aroma is mild but easy to pick up. Some grains also here. The taste is sweet at first, folloed by very moderate bitterness. Drinkable, but average.

Thanks Natko! Clear golden yellow body with a medium sized lasting white head. Malty, slightly grassy taste, meh. Empty malty, slightly eggy, slighty sourish, slightly vegetabley (perfumey) taste with some light malt bitterness. All of this is damn subdued making it drinkable if you really wish to punish yourself for some reason. Meh.

Shared a 33cl can from ScanShop (Luxembourg). Pours a clear light straw colour with a thin white head. Aroma is malty and grassy hops. Average carbonation and light watery body. Taste is light, but slightly more bitter than sweet. Resembles more a pilsener. Overall, a common refreshing lager.
