1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle from Rimi Norde Centrum in Tallinn, ah, an Estonian version of this soviet gem... Clear gold colour, medium frothy mostly lasting white head, little lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain, hay and meal with light herbal hops. Taste is initally sweet and slightly acidic, turning into a mildly bitter finish with a hint of alcohol. Light to medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation. Fairly generic lager, the bit of alcohol in the aftertaste while being only 4.6% strong and mild hopping do bring a distinct soviet vibe to it.
