26.01.13: Bottle 0. 5 l, Saku, Estonia.
Jasnozłote piwo z grubą, puszystą pianą. W smaku lekko wodnisty, typowy, koncernowy lager. Goryczka jest ale słaba, orzeźwia, da się wypić, szczególnie w lato.

Pale golden blonde pour with a thin head and light lacing ... Aroma of bread and spent malts ... Taste is crisp and of bready malts .... Simple and malty .... Sweet stuff went good with pizza

reggiedunlop (3493) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has mild skunky grass and straw...very mild! Flavor is very minimal but skunky and grassy. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a dry skunky/straw finish. Very boring and bland.

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 29, 2014
Jul ’14. A 0.5 l can. It poured pale yellow body with small head. Weak hay and some malt in aroma. Flavor was extremely weak and watery as well, showed some malty notes and eggy off-notes. Thin, needless to say, but pleasantly malty and even lightly herbal finish saved it completely. To conclude - this is a watery, almost bland everyday macro pale lager.

Can@ScanShop. Bičre blonde de type pils: robe paillée avec mini col. Le nez est métalique, senteurs de grain fluet, petite acidité, pas d’amertume. La bouche est assez douce mais sans rondeur, trčs aqueuse avec des arômes vaguement mielleux, en tout cas fort soyeux, le tout trčs fluet et sec. La fin est vaguement acerbe trčs courte. Pas trop mal.

Bottle. Strong barley malt and light lemon aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Lightly sour lemon and barley malt flavor. Standard - not horrible.

Patrickctenchi (5078) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2014
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 (4424) - 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.
