omhper (26039) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2012
Bottled (PET) at PBF. Clear pale golden, brief head. Rotting fruits and boiled vegetables up front. Sweetish with light-medium body. Heavy carbonation dilutes the overly fruity garbage flavour. Crap lager.

TBone (18669) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2012
Plastic bottle 1ltr (PBF, bottled 05/2012)
Clear golden color, small white head. Green apple in the nose, unclean notes. Light bodied. Lots of cardboard, sweet apple. Not so much diacetyl for PET bottle! But still fail.

FatPhil (17511) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2011
500ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
3+ Hmmm, it’s that Moscow taste - reminds me of Afanasy Zolotoe. There’s something not right about it, but it’s hard to pinpoint. I can imagine an industrial process that takes malted grain and returns this, but I’m not sure I’d call it ’brewing’
1 Clear glass bottle, and pale fizzy lager with a scummy head - there’s only one score in town for that kind of mother.
2 Sickly, sweet. Not sickly sweet, just sick sickly, and sweet sweet. Not bland enough to be something I’d ever want to drink in any circumstance. Oh christ, it reacts badly with the Haldirams Nimbu Masala snacks I’m eating, and there’s clear puke in the taste now in the retronasals. Experiment repeated - oh fuck, that’s puke, I nearly gagged *real* hard.
1 Pissy fizzy pale lager, was never going to be above 2. But that puke continues in the finish.
4 I’m now instating the Nimbu Masala test as a vital component in any pale lager tasting, the way it isolated the puke was astonishing. Originally, I thought this was a crap 1.4, but with that much puke it’s invited itself to an elite band of "there’s no way a sane human being should ever want to brew or drink this". It’s a good job Russia doesn’t have an alcoholism problem, as this beer will clearly have no market, and die out soon.

DSG (15519) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle. 4.8%. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of cereals, graininess, a bit of paper and some metallic hops notes. Sweetish grainy flavor with some slightly metallic bitterness. Light to medium-bodied.

2.1
Mariusz (12352) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2012
Pale yellow, white head. Weak aroma. Bready cardboard flavor with some hops.

1.6
Erzengel (9893) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 20, 2014
The beer starts smooth and mild. Not much of aroma - mainly sweet-grainy. A bit like a "gold-beer". The mainpart is sweetish-grain with no other aroma. nearly no bitterness, easy to drink. The aftertaste is sweetish and smooth.
4/12/4/4

1.9
Quack-Duck (9543) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2012
bottle. Clear golden colour, small white head. Strange aroma, slightly beery. Malty base, grainy, smooth palate at the beginning, then turning very dry. Hardly any hops detectable, despite the dry mouthfeel.

1.6
ogivlado (8446) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 16, 2012
Bottled 500ml. -Fancy clear bottle. Golden coloured medium sized white head, some corn in the nose. Sweet malty, cardboard and corn with hint of grass in rather short and watery finish. Not good.
