Metalchopz's rating

Metalchopz (2210) - Cantley, Quebec, - DEC 14, 2011
Originally rated November 2005. This Estonian lager pours a rich yellow colour with a decent white head. Retention and lacing is lacking. Carbonation is pretty active, slow and medium sized bubbles. The nose is sweet with grain malt, but the taste is not that close (or bad for some). Bitterness, light touch of a pils, is found throughout with some corn (or grain) slowly showing in the aftertaste. Production date on back of label is written: 040805 1023253 011. Not a bad lager, well balanced between a pilsner and a pale lager.

Marko (3896) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 23, 2014
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.

ruigo (1027) - PORTUGAL - MAY 26, 2014
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.

Braastad (384) - FINLAND - APR 5, 2014
Suprisingly, a grassy hop aroma like that of a pilsner. Flavor doesn’t follow through. Mildly malty, even more mildly hoppy. But OK balance.

mmather (145) - Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2014
Nice foamy head, great clarity. Palate and flavor a little thin for this style of pils although the hop levels were fine. Good but not spectacular.

Senka (422) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 7, 2014
Pint can. Pours clear golden, with creamy head. Aroma of fresh water and hop extract. Texture is what makes it good. It is not there every batch, but sometimes it is really enjoyable.
