Brainiac (218) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 3, 2013
on tap. Very yeasty aroma with green tea strings. Little sweet in taste, little malt.

villevav (506) - FINLAND - MAR 6, 2013
Rather dark for a Pilsener, clearly more american style than traditionally German Pils. The taste has plenty of hops and some sweetness that makes it easy to confuse this with a Vienna or Märzen. Nice one!

larsga (7608) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2013
Biggish offwhite head. Clear deep yellow body with strong carbonation. Strawy earthy wet wood and resin aroma with nutty notes. Dry-sweet oily nutty earthy taste with resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish resiny nutty herbal aftertaste with earthy papery notes. Interesting and unusual, and highly drinkable. Definitely has that Lithuanian style to it. (0.5l bottle, from Stockmann, Riga.)

ectuohy27 (1212) - ESTONIA - JUN 15, 2013
A very, very, very good PL. Aroma made me not expect much, but the palate is quite surprisingly rich--yeasty, of course, but with some neat almost chocolate malt notes, plenty toasty as well. Fantastic for the style, another nice outing from Bruveris

MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2014
On tap at Brewery Õlleklubi in Tallinn, Estonia where it was listed as "Design Pilsner" on the English menu and "Hansa Zeldzaam Desing Pilsner" on the Estonian menu. Brewery Õlleklubi tries to look like a brewery, but its house beers are mostly rebranded Latvian beers. Clear, sparkling, bright amber with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of pilsener malt, floral hops, caramel and bread. Taste of caramel, pilsener malt, floral hops, black pepper and toffee. Medium body and medium carbonation with a clean and nearly crisp mouthfeel. A sweet, but otherwise respectable pilsener. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Один из лучших лагеров что я пил. Цена хорошая. Можно брать смело

2.9
suurjuust (3612) - ESTONIA - NOV 24, 2012
Hazy yellow, small white head with filmy retention. Nose is sweetish malt with dusty walnuts, caramel and boiled vegetables. Taste is pretty close to the nose, with more pronounced dusty walnut notes and some more boiled vegetables in the finish. Thin to medium body, soft carbonation. Weird balance, not for everyone.

2.9
phfyysik (1369) - Tartu, ESTONIA - NOV 7, 2016
Pours golden with light white head. Aroma is fruits, malty sweetness, some perfume, freshness. Taste is fruity, sourish, citrus, flour, some hay. Very different and nice lager. Good beer!

2.8
kathouse (1928) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Golden amber with a light thin head. Aroma has malt sweetness and grassy without being too vegetal from the hops. Light body. Finishes fairly clean.
