FatPhil (15154) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2016
500ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut and ultimately his secret santa SinH4!
Bready, floury, a touch creamy lactic aroma. Just at its BB, so not as fresh as it could be, but not off at all. A touch of nuttiness too. Light refreshing palate, but carbonation a bit high. Very herbal hoppiness, a touch strawey. Malts lower than I expected given the breadiness of the aroma. Lacticity quite obvious too. Good thirst-quencher. Finish has an excellent bitter bite, quite a citrussy little tingle. Would love to try a fresh one straight from the tap, this has clearly passed its peak.

martjoobolut (3681) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle, bb 30.12.2016 (thanks santa SinH4). Pours golden with whiteish head. Aroma is sweet, malty, grainy, some butterscotch. Flavor is sweet and bitter, hoppy, grains, malt, some fruits, slight butterscotch. Finish is dry bitter. Overall: ok, like the hoppiness, would like try the fresher version.

Marduk (6903) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2016
500ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Clear dark golden color. Medium size, bubbly white head, stays. Grainy, hay, grassy hops, buttery, papery and sourish in aroma. Grainy, nice hops, very mild rubber, sweetish in taste. Bitter rubbery band-aid in aftertaste. Almost something like medicinal too. Very crisp palate. Solid, but this band aid is kind of ruining some things a bit. Slick mouthfeel. Solid brew.

anstei (1699) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 17, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2016 Bottle, courtesy of SinH4, many thanks! Bought 1 month ago, rather too old for this beer. Pours clear golden. Aroma is lightly fruity with flowers, light aroma. Body is medium with a lively carbonation. Incredible drinkability, super smooth and interesting throughout. Great beer, even if too old.

derA (56) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 14, 2016
pleasant malty smell, typical grain nose of well-made lager beer with a hint of corn, hop smell cannot be separated seems to have faded mostly on this bottle already, drinking experience is excellent, lively carbonation, perfect balance between sharp bitter byte and cracker-like malt finish which lasts a lot longer than other examples of the style.

Zlotta (2614) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2016
0.5 l bottle, best before November 2016, from pivnizub, many thanks Guenther! Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, very dense and foamy, stable, white head. Very grassy, moderately floral and a little fruity aroma of fresh grass, citrus and some grains. A bit sweetish, quite grassy, moderately floral and a little fruity taste of fresh grass, citrus, a touch of butter and hints of grains, followed by a medium long, yeasty, moderately bitter, rather grassy and a bit dry finish. Medium body, very smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Really tasty Lager with a very smooth and almost silky palate, drinks incredibly easily.
