2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear and bright golden body with lots of carbonation and a large angel-white head. Aroma and flavour are both bang on what I expected - sweetish grainy malt, moderate level of hops, decently balanced with a quick, grassy finish. A decent and inoffensive middle-of-the-road Eurolager that earns a bit of respect for at least being all malt.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2015 50cl bottle. Faint aroma of washing water from beer kettle. Looks extremely pale, more green that yellow, empty, frothy head and minimum carbonation. Does not have much taste - take any premium lager from Mikkeller, dilute it 1:10 with water and you will have this one. And they dare to charge €1 per bottle for that. I am extremely disappointed. I used to be loyal to Tartu brewery (from the Estonian ones) - 10 years ago quality was much higher. The biggest disappointing, is that A. Le Coq head brewer named this beer its favourite (I secretly hoped it will be Porter or Tõmmu Hiid). I hope they will switch to higher quality ingredients - after all,they do have knowledge, history and technology.
Updated from 1.4 to 2.1 based on aluminium bottle, limited edition. Nice touch for a macro lager. Smoother beer than the bottles in the same pack.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle [500ml]. Pours a clear pale gold with an average size frothy diminishing white head. Some light lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, honey, grain and pale malt along with a hint of vegetal notes. Slightly watery flavour’s the same, with grassy hops, grain, honey and pale malt along with some corn. Average bodied. Meh, it’s as mediocre as it gets but -- at least it’s not foul or offensive.

50cl can from Tallinn Airport. Pours clear, pale golden with a small white head. Lightly grainy and malty aroma with hints of grass. Pretty clean with no off aromas, but not much flavour either. Medium sweet with a very light bitterness in the finish. A bit watery, but easy to drink and I think I can sense some vague hints of hops in it to. Quite decent pale lager.
