phfyysik (1367) - Tartu, ESTONIA - SEP 29, 2016
Can 330ml. Compared together with Puls extra lager. Pours yellow with huge head. Actually can explodes a little bit. Aroma is dusty, malts, some sourness, grain, light vegetables. Taste is metallic, sourish, malts, some grain and very light sweetness. Much more sour and metallic than Puls extra Lager. Drinkable.

330 ml can. BB 23/06/17. (Super Alko) Tallinn, Estonia. Golden color, small white head. Bread malt, sweetness and alcohol in the aroma. The flavor is sweetness, bready malt and booze. Really boozy for a 5.2% brew. Bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl can from Calle, Tallinn. Pours clear pale golden without much head to speak of. Grainy aroma with hints of cooked vegetables, some orver-ripe fruits, caramel and syrup. Fairly sweet with faint acidic notes and just a hint of bitterness. Rather unpleasant pale lager - even quite cold.

330ml can (Alkoporssi, Tallinn)
OK, maybe I’m still riding the boost bus from last night, but this isn’t a bad beer at all. Right on opening there’s a lot of sweet bready grains, it even reminds me of some of the breadier non-alcoholic beers, it’ssuch a malt bomb. Fullish palate for a lager, but that’s just the residual sugars talking, it’s otherwise a bit watery and dull, but does have a pleasant level of carbonation.Taste very malty,obviously, but has a vanilla softness and almost an almondy nuttiness. Finish is quite drying, hops are dry and sticky and powdery. Strangely, there’s almost something bramling-cross-ey about them. Does a good job of keeping the boost a-buzzin’ at 11 in the morning. Having said that, just occasionally, I did get a strange waft of alcohol in the mouth,which I don’t like so much. Not the disaster that all these haters claim it is!
