Black color, small head, which disappears totally in seconds. Light yeasty caramel aroma. Taste is very sweet and sugary, with caramel and some spices, short ashy finish. Medium body and soft carbonation, too sweetened and unbalanced. Overall not nasty, but doesn’t taste like beer at all, reminds me of Dr.Pepper soft drink.

Pours very dark with a small head. Sweetish and slightly roasted aroma with notes of caramel and coffee. Taste is sweet too; caramel, grain, liquorice and very moderate herbal bitterness. Low carbonation. Too sweet for me. (0,5l bottle, labeled as "Puls, Wild Dark")

Eks ta üks vesine köhasiirup ole. Januga ei kõlba võtta ja nautida pole ka tast midagi.

Bottle, slightly above best serving temperature. Beautiful dark amber colour, fairly decent head. Aroma has hay, a small sour note. Taste caramelly, malty, with slightly artificial herbs. Too sweet. Slightly sour with medium body. Lingering astringency a la Jägermeister. Not my cup of beer...

Bottle. Reddish brown color, small white head. Some malts, vegetables, yeast and caramel in the aroma. Taste is very sweet, artificial, malty and herbal with very weird aftertaste, like liquid mold perhaps. Very bad. Not recommended.

It tastes like a soda with a hint of beer. Sweet and no taste at all. Disappointment.

MartR (356) - Aespa, ESTONIA - JAN 15, 2017
Herbal grassy notes in taste. Bitterness from herbs or hops. Sweet palate as base. Sweet light bodied beers are not something I favor. Feels unbalanced and not clean. Messy brew, but drinkable enough to finish the glass.
