500 ml can. BB 08/05/16. (Prisma) Tallinn, Estonia.
Clear golden color with a big foamy white head.
Grassy hops, mild bitterness and dry grainy maltiness in the aroma. Could be worse... The flavor however is very bland and watery... mild grassy hops, mild bitterness and some maltiness. Tastes like it’s been watered down. Watery and dry. I read some of the old ratings from 2001/2002 and it’s possible that this used to be quite nice Pilsener.

BOTTLE 50 CL by Efes Moldova. Bottled March 2015. distinct herbal hops aroma, wormwood, somewhat dusty. The taste is also hop dominated with a bit of malt sweetness. The hops are somehow dusty and stale, reminiscent of a plastic container. Light astringency in the mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from WB Stores, West Bromwich. It’s a tough, cement-mixing, weight-lifting world. This is a wine gum, fruit gum lager. The swaying meadow grasslands hop is grassy pleasure. Enjoyed the hurting juice. Rather a good EE lager I reckon.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
When first released, it had more of everything. Latest bottle sampled couple a days ago was just not enjoyable at all. It was served at right temperature, and with a decent food, but it did not save it. Simple, thin, slightly carbonated. A bit dry.
