ccex (891) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2013
500ml bottle pours a clear yellow with moderate white head. Aroma is grainy, malty, cardboard and grassy. Taste has a bit of hoppy bitterness. Body is thin with average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. If you enjoy pale lagers, this one is definitely worth a $1.49 try.

330ml can. Light clear yellow, white überthin head. Some malt and hops but mostly watery. It feels like the canis giving more aromas than the brew.

thellgren (228) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2012
0.5 bottle @ Eckerö Lines ferry boat. The bottle was not cold enough for my taste. A lager for hot summer days when you are thirsty. Otherwise, it don’t have much to offer.

56,8cl can from Tallinn Airport. Pours pale yellow with a white head. Very light malty aroma with hints of cooked vegetables, green apples and grass. Sweet, watery and almost flavourless with a very light bitterness in the finish. Very uninteresting, but pretty drinkable if thirsty.
