Senka (722) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2015
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.

DSG (6471) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle shared at Beer Market Jaffa. Clear yellow with a white head. Grainy aroma with hay, some corn and light grassy hops. Slightly sweetish flavor, grainy, with a bit of corn and a drier, mildly bitterish finish with a light hoppy note. Pretty light-bodied. Pretty dry, clean and easy-drinking.

CanCrusher (679) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle 0,50L. Pale golden colour with frothy, white head.Green bottle skunky aroma with some grassy hops, hay and grain. Moderate bitter taste with nice grassy bitterness and long lasting aftertaste. Light to medium body, watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Better than I expect.

Erzengel (3978) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 20, 2014
The beer starts smooth and grainy. Not very deep, but a bit sharp. The mainpart is malty-grainy, still a bit sharp and a bit unround-bitter till the end. The aftertaste is medium, grainy-sharp with a undefined bitterness.

Pours clear golden with big white head. Crispy grass aroma with a hint of malts. Mild but well-balanced taste. Slightly malty at first but dryish finish. Decent bulk lager. (0,5 l can, 4,7% abv. version)

MarkoNm (920) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 25, 2014
Another Russian beer. Pours a quite pale golden color, clear, with a decent white head of average retention. The aroma is pleasantly malty and grainy, easily picked up by the nose. The taste is slightly sweet at first, followed by a very nicely balanced body and a pleasantly bitter finish. One of the nicer Russian pilseners I had.
