UPDATED: FEB 10, 2012 Bottle. Pale yellow body with a minimal head. Aroma has some breadiness but the taste is watery and overcarbonated like many other Estonian macros. At least it’s better than their over-marketed "Premium". 2012 Re-rate: Very pale yellow/green body. Raw and grainy aroma. Taste is light but rubbery. I used to like this beer in the past but now it just has been declining and declining... to the point that it’s now possibly worse than Premium.

(Draught) Poured very pale golden and clear. Head was medium sized, white and it disappeared quickly. Aroma was mildly grassy and metallic. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, metallicness, sweetnes, hint of grain and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter.

kschep (1706) - DENMARK - JUN 10, 2010
strong lager, a lot of malty sweetness - the relative lightness of the taste is somewhat off-putting since the sweetness could use some heavier base

Russo (1678) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JAN 4, 2010
Bought at some local store in Tallinn. Pale yellow lager with head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is weak with notes of malt. Flavor is kind watery with some bitterness at finish. With this name should be the best Beer in the World. :D. Just kidding.
