1.7
Senka (1093) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 28, 2014
50cl can. Simple pale lager - the colder you serve it, the better it gets. It is all about carbonation with this one. Not the best one from Sinebrychoff.

1.7
Leini (2079) - SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2014
500ml bottle. Golden body with a medium white head. Malty and sweet, thin palate.

Lambister (520) - FINLAND - NOV 16, 2013
50cl bottle. Copper colored liquid with giant white foamy head. Sweet malts with hints of butter. Short and boring.

2.1
Tide (4375) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Can from supermarket. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, grain, a bit of hops, cardboard and grass. Bitter finish with citrus and cardboard. Pretty basic bulk lager.

2.2
djoeye (5210) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2013
50 cl alu-can, K-Kilpisjärvi FI. Pours a foamy head, that vanishes on the golden body - deeper colour than usual pale lagers have. Foam leaves a few patterns inside the dimpled mug. Scents of hops, grass, peaches, raspberry bush. Taste of malt, painted candy, citric acid. Grains dominate mouthfeel, and it’s smooth and unusual. Aftertaste bread, syrup, corrugated papers, caramel, lemon juice. Overall unusual with it’s citric syrupy impression, and reminds me somewhat of waiting in a pharmacy, waiting for something nice.
