CloakedDagger (2967) - - SEP 28, 2017
Bottle 50 cl. Pours deep golden with a slight haze and a small, white head. Sweet, fruity nose - not lagerish at all. Medium body, soft carbonation, again heavily fruity - appears quite rustic and artisanal. Very subdued bitterness. Pleasant drinking - and no way a Pale Lager. 280917 FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 15, 2017
500ml bottle (Stockmann, Riga) (4:4:3:3-:7-=2.1-)Marduk (8622) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 1, 2017
Nice orange, slight mist, tight orangey head, quite persistent, looks like a proper lager. Very milky aroma - warmed milk, sweetish, some berry aspects. Watery sickly sweet malts in the taste, harsh perfumey bitterness. A smooth full palate, but a bit sickly.
500ml flip-top bottle (Stockmann, Riga). Hazy orange color. Tiny size, beige head, stays. Husky, grainy, malty, caramel in aroma. Sweet, husky, honey, floury in taste. Honey and dusty flour in aftertaste. Poor brew. VamboladeTolly (2184) - Tartu, ESTONIA - AUG 1, 2017

Grainy maltiness all the way, some rubbery herbal hops, bit plastic, quite harsh in finish. Light sweetness with moderate to light bitterness. Drinkable, but boring Alusmamuts (2171) - LATVIA - MAY 31, 2017
