FatPhil (15079) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 5, 2013
400ml bottle (Rimi, Tallinn)
Pours a rich gold, with a huge persistent tight, almost rocky, head. Does have nice aromatic noble hops in the aroma, with some soft sweet malts behind that. Typical lagery palate, a bit watery, with some crisp carbonation. Taste does have a fair bit of barley to it, I dont think its an adjunct lager at all. Quite a good Czech pilsner hoppiness. Make this unfiltered, and this would actually be good.Finish does have some bitterness, more than most A le Coqs. This is a good tasty lager.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2014 400 ml bottle. E/J. BB 28/03/14. From Estonia. Thanks a lot Thomas!
Clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Grainy malt, Play-Doh, fresh mint and mild hops in the aroma. The flavour is pretty much the same, grainy malt, alcohol (surprisingly much for a 4.8% brew), boring grassy hops and vegetably elements. The bottle and the label gives an impression that this is something else than your average Baltic lager. Well, it isnt.

Also tasted as Grāfs fon Zīverss Lager.
