labeerinthum (544) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 11, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso rimanda all’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una scarsa tenuta, con bollicine medie a carbonazione media. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Le bollicine sono poche e fini. La carbonazione è persistente. Il colore è giallo dorato brillante. Il corpo è rotondo. L’amaro è moderato. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva. Il finale è pulito e dissetante. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. Al palato arrivano sentori di pane, orzo e cereali.

LazyPyro (570) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2016
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Clear light yellow piss colour with a thin smooth white head, becoming patchy. Aroma of sweet malts and grassy hops. Flavour is hoppy and also sweetish malts. Very watery texture. Easily drinkable but lacks flavour.

phfyysik (714) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 18, 2016
Clear light yellow colour and small top. Aroma is sweaty a little bit, some hay and lemon also. Feels little bit old and broken. Flavour is very light, watery, mild bitterness, some malts. Quite dry and a lot of carbo. Can replace more expensive water in some occasions.

rosenbergh (10399) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2015
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.

nordic (423) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUN 22, 2015
Can 0,5. Light yellow color, no head. Malty aroma, weak. Taste like usual lager, salty, little bitter. Did not like it.

dnicolaescu (1983) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 23, 2015
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.

Grumbo (1366) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle from Rasputin’s Food & Wine, Ipswich. Pours a clear golden colour with an average sized white head. Aroma of hops and grains. Light sweetness to taste. Thin texture. Unremarkable.
