Light coloured body with fizzing foam. Cheesy aroma. A tad astringent unpleasant in finish. Some drinkability.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours light gold. Hops, malts, but nothing tastes much. I guess it’s easy enough to drink since I had trouble discerning anything special. Ok for thirst or after sauna?

Bottle from a local shop - pleasantly surprised to find Estonian beer in Moscow. Pours a pale yellow with a brief frothy head. Aroma of grass. Grain flavour. It's an identikit Eurolager.

Gul farge med tynt hvitt skum. Lukter malt og ellers ingenting. Vanlig og kjedelig butikk lager. Grei nok en varm sommerdag. Vannete.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Drank from a can after sauna. Just your typical big brewery lager. There should be some kind of special aromatic hops here but I can’t taste them.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Typical standard lager, not much character, just a deeply golden blonde, fizzy, malty sweet ’pils’ with soft mouthfeel and mildly grassy hops in the finish without becoming sufficiently bitter to balance the malt sweetishness. Forgettable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at a Talinn restaurant. Poured a clear straw colour with a frothy white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is malt, light hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a malt hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. A refreshing lager.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle couresy of Jill’s Baltic cruise. Straw coloured with a white head. Pretty bland, even for a lager. Hard to pick out any real flavour other than grain and a little spice.
