FatPhil (9344) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 8, 2010
500ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
4 Bland inoffensive lager aroma. Later some salty tuna brine when swirling.
2 Pale pissy colour, small head
5 Starts a bit weird but quickly improves. Again a pale inoffensive lager, something odd here too - it’s not coffee, but there’s a certain burntness to it. A touch of citrus and a vague bit of caramel too.
2 Thin and fizzy texturally, but the taste does fill the mouth. The finish is actually reasonably hoppy, probably hallertau spalt.
7 Not usually a fan of their pale lagers, but this was crisp, clean, full flavoured, and left a pleasant finish.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle. Pours light golden with a large white head. Nice aroma: a good balance of mild malt and hops, plus a little citrus, plus... Something a little different. Another rater said it smelled of tea, and that’s about as close as I can get. Flavor is pretty malty (like a European lager), with more of the citrus and tea (?). One of the hoppier beers I’ve had in Russia/Ukraine. Sort of creamy on the tongue. A nice, refreshing, solid beer.
