500 ml bottle from Estonia

Pours pale clear golden with strings of small carbonation bubbles rising, thick and soft head that slowly fades to dense layer, patchy downsliding lacing. Aroma is lemony hops with sweetish malt.

Taste is lemony and herbal bittery hops, some malt and significant bitterness in the aftertaste, sweetish residue remains on the lips. Mouthfeel is light with medium or slightly above medium carbonation, very faint alcohol warming.

Overall, a light and a little above average hopped pale lager. I can not decide whether I like this beer or not - on one hand the maltiness is not that pleasant, on the other - it is very nicely hopped...

Pours a clear apple juice colour with a creamy one finger head that stays and no lacing,the smell is herbal grassy hops and wet hay,the mouthfeel is lightbodied and almost water thin and has tastes of lemon zest,honey,barley,grassy hops,lemongrass and finished with a sweet hint of corn and overall its very average and probably would not buy again cheers.
