   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
Nordcore (1698) - Lyngen alps, - MAR 14, 2013
Can 33 cl. Clear golden, with a shortlived white head. Aroma of malt and straw. Medium bitter taste with a short malty end

Olorin (64) - Graz, AUSTRIA - DEC 8, 2017
330 ml can. Pale golden colour, medium head with low durability, nearly no lacing, soft carbonation. Nose is cereal, a little bit hoppy. Flavour is medium sweet, light bitter, watery. Short finish. A beer without any character.

Cornix (198) - - AUG 16, 2017
Can. Clear yellow color, white head. Aroma and taste are malty, sweetish, grainy, no hops detected. Pretty bland and boring. 1,8

Tezminator (304) - AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2017
Aroma of yeasty something. Taste is mildly sweet. There is some mild fruit. I really did not enjoy this one.

330ml can. This is a really crappy beer. There’s not much more that can be said about it.

Jalanhalaaja (2) - SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2016 does not count
Very much C02, nice thirst killer. Nice golden apperance. Good at approx 8-10 degrees celcius. Some taste of apple, citrus and honey.

Kobracai (200) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Clear golden colour. Aroma of fruit and grass. Taste is slightly malty but watery. Finish is on sweeter side. Body is medium body and carbonation strong. Better than the weaker sibling but still a bit boring. Cheap on Finnish tax free ferry. Under 1€.

Marduk (8622) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 12, 2016
330ml can (M/S Star, Tallinnk). Pale yellow color. Medium size, foamy head, disappears. Sour, malty, corny, cardboard in aroma. Malty, perfume, papery, cardboard in taste. Struggle in aftertaste. Very highly carbonated. Nope.

Dermi (1199) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2015
33 cl, bottled (BB 27.04.16). Pours clear amber with a decent white head, decent bubbles. Aroma: Sweet, grainy malt. Negligible notes of hops, leaves. Taste: Medium sweet, mild pleasant bitterness. Malty flavours, grains. Palate: Near medium body, average carbonation. Refreshing, mildly dry. Decent pale lager, not bad.

MarkoNm (3011) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 19, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a medium sized frothy head, white in color. Aroma is quite mild, pretty neutral and just some grainy notes. Tatse starts with some sweetness, later nicely balanced by mild bitterness. Nothing great, but drinkable. Light and crisp. Decent.

Kavu (5249) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2015
0,33l can from a friend. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma is metallic malts. Flavor is grainy malts with metallic alcohol. Drinkable.
