3.13/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pale straw colour, big foamy head that settles pretty fast, to a fairly thin head, loads of carbonation going upwards.

S: Fair amount of hop, some sugar, hint of grass

T: very sweet, hardly any hop, a little bit of malt, something floral at the finish; overall not much there, nothing bad, although for me too sweet.

M: A little thin, and undercarbonated, on the plus side fairly dry,

O: It's a descent beer, nothing great (I actually start to doubt that I will ever find that great lager), but I can enjoy it. A friend of mine grew fond of this beer while living in Latvia and I can see why, it's probably a descent session beer.

Bottle at Peculiar Pub, New York, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a slight amount of carbonation. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving some patches of patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of fruit stand out in the smell - apples seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste has flavors of apples and pale malts along with hints of corn adjuncts.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't have very interesting flavors, but the taste is inoffensive and no skunk is perceptible despite the beer coming in a clear bottle.

Served in a bottle at Peculier Pub in New York, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some hints of lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a couple of small patches of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of sweet corn adjuncts with lighter aromas of pale malts and some light fruit (apples - almost like a cider).

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of pale malts with some corn adjunct lending it a light amount of sweetness. There are also some light flavors of apple. No hops are perceptible.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Kind of surprising that there is no skunkiness to the taste or smell of this beer considering it came in a clear glass bottle - overall a decent offering for the Euro Pale Lager style and inoffensive (which is not something I can always say about this style and/or Eastern European mass produced lagers in general).
