500ml bottle. Pours golden yellow colour. Moderate white head. Maltiness, notes of honey, dust, notes of caramel in the aroma. Caramel at first. Malty in the middle. Slight sweetness too. Slightly bitter, malty finish. Caramelly, slightly sweet aftertaste. Light bodied, medium carbonated, drinkable lager beer. Rather a lager than pilsner. Juks (1111) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 24, 2017

Very nice taste for a pilsener, caramel sweetness is there, also some bitterness. Rather sweet, little bitterness. Maybe slightly too sweet for this type of beer. Reminds a bit Belgian Ale. martjoobolut (5228) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 29, 2016

My Bottom Line: Marduk (8505) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 18, 2016
Herbal hops and straw-like cereals are a bit bothered by this lager’s level of residual sugars.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam tops the very dark golden.
-Carbonation is a bit too intense, even for a Pils.
-Hops are nicely expressed throughout.
-Drinkability is reduced by the high carbonation and residual sugars.
Tap. Slightly hazy light golden color. Medium size, thick white head, stays. Grainy, slightly sourish, faint hops in aroma. Grainy, touch of burnt plastic and faint grassy hops in taste. Faint burnt plastic in aftertaste. Fizzy carbonation. Light body. Carbonation is somewhat problem. FatPhil (17160) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 15, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Tap (Kochi Beer Festival, Tallinn) (5:4:5-:2+:9=2.5)
Pleasant grainy aroma, a little bit mashy. Pale orange, persistent creamy head. Light palate, carbonation crisp, maybe a bit. Light malty body, quite simple. Finish quite bitter with a spiky metallic bite.
Rerate: Tap - same keg (5:4:5:2:11=2.7)
Oooh, better, richer. Nice lager! Still served cold and a bit fizzy for a warm flat fan, but definitely a tasty lager.
