DuffMan (7991) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2007
Pretty ordinary pale lager, sweet grainy tinged with very mild green hop aroma. On the sweet side with a bit of boxbard dryness (oxidation?). Anyway, I didn’t find this as bad as some of the other raters, but as far as euro-lagers go, it is in the bottom half.

Great Beer from Estonia! Love the look of the bottle. We have it in USA in 0,3l bottles, perfect for me! One thing tough: never, ever drink it warm!!! Always has to be ice cold.

daniel0017 (408) - Yukon, CANADA - DEC 30, 2006
Faint, almost nonexistent aroma of grass and corn. Clear yellow, flat body with no head and no lacing. Flavor is OK, very boring, normal: Corn, grass, water... Expect nothing more than a watery palate without even a hint of carbonation. Not much positive about this beer... Oh wait, the label is nice, kinda.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2006
Pale with a surprising amount of foam. Another light lager but with some taste of nuts and hops. Not bad, a standard low key lager.

haukur (1430) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - DEC 2, 2006
well, a bit more pleasant than the dreadful Kuld bit still pretty bad. It is a big mystery to me, and a sign of stupidity that we can get two beers from this brewery here in Iceland, none being the porter!

Finn (4710) - Tromsř, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2006
Bottle 0,5l. Pale golden coloured. A shortlived white head. Cautious malty aroma. Sweet taste with some malt.

rederic (3207) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 8, 2006
Pale yellow gold hue, with an off-white head, fresh cut hay nose, with a sweet pale malt accent, faint floral hops note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp sweet pale malt character, with a wet straw accent, toasty note, leading towards a citrus hops bittering finish.
