Creamy. One beer with itneresting feaures, different taste than other lagers but still within the boundaries of the regular stuff. Nice head and colour.

500ml bottle. Very pale yellow (Lovibond 3). Good sized head lasts fairly long. Lacing is ample. Aroma is quite repulsive - like a wet dog. Tastes rather mellow with initial sweetness and hops to balance out. Im impressed with the balance but there's nothing really special about this.

hmmm. Estonia. This night is getting worse and worse. This beer just tastes like fermented shoe leather. No taste, bad aftertaste and surely a big hangover tomorrow. No good. Really watery colour.

Big can from Blaisure. Thin straw body w slight head. Nose is hay, water and metal. Taste is thin corny malts and slight sweet. Not offensive, as some are, but not much going for it either.

500ml from my local lcbo. Typical golden pour, next to no head. Aroma of wet grass, cardboard and corn. More sweet corn and cheap cereals in the finish with next to no bitterness. Lcbo, why?

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500mL bottle, showed up unannounced at my local likboe. Pours a pale yellow with a small white foam. Aroma is of your standard pale malt syrup with peppery hops. Flavour has that odd ’East Euro’ malt character that I can’t quite describe, but is a little grainy. Nutty, and with some quick, peppery hop zing in the finish. Not a whole lot going on, and yet another in a long, long line of pointless beers the LCBO seems to feel the need to shower us with. Where’s my Aldaris Zelta?

0,5l can and bottle. Pale yellow color. Small white head. Metallic, grainy aroma. Light sweet watery body. Somewhat bitter ending. Nothing premium about it.

Pours very light yellow almost grey colour. Not much to the flavour either. very light grain flavour with little to no finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Second Estonian beer for me (Saku Originaal being the first one) and both came in a 500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a yellow colour (light golden) with a white head that hand in there and delivers decent dirty lace. The nose is grainy with cereal malt and what seems like corn (but not sure). Notes of dirty hay and citrus eventually come out. Medium-bodied with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Mild grass mixed in with the malt, all-in-all light, kind of different but not overly weird. Drinkable, maybe a touch better than the Saku Originaal.
