altonbrownd (3933) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Tall can from Blaisure! Light golden body with big head. Nose of corny malts with slight metallic feel. Taste is hoppy, with caramel and malts coming through as well. Metallic, but okay. Another Pale Lager from somewhere else.

Rocking the Estonian ticks. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A sweet sort of sticky dirty nose. Fizzy, somewhat sweet malts, maybe a hint of pils malt, not much here. Watery, minerals, metallic. Not great.

Gangstergafje (308) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2015
The beer has a pilsener appearance. The color golden yellow and the beer is very clear. There is a small layer of white foam on top of the beer. The beer has a bready smell, not that good. There is also some malt and some hops. The taste is just simpel beer. Bread, hop, barley, nothing special.

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.
