COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who has once tasted Tõmmu Hiid, will never forget its taste. There is no other dark beer in Estonia that has such a mild taste. It is so light that you can drink it until the early morning hours. This is the beer that is present at all good parties and it will always feature in memories that are passed on from father to son.

jamaty (1248) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 16, 2015
Castaña, bastante oscura, limpia y con un par de dedos de espuma ligeramente ocre. Aroma escaso, malteado. El cuerpo es ligero, algo aguado, y tampoco tiene mucho gas. Lo mejor es el sabor tostado y acaramelado, aunque un poco metálico. Final seco. Agradable, en general aunque se echa en falta fuerza, y contrapunto a la malta.

50cl bottle. Pours clear dark brown with small white head. Aroma almost bland, only light note of bread and carbonation. Taste is sweet, light bitter. Aftertaste almost stops completely after a while. Satisfactory alternative for getting wasted.

Kauge (699) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 14, 2014
50 cl bottle at Sesoon (€ 2,20) in Tallinn, July 2014. Must have been at least 5 years since I last had it. Let’s see. Pours a nice reddish mahogany with a tan head, doesn’t stay long but doesn’t completely disappear either. Both aroma and taste are mostly caramelly and malty, slightly metallic too. Only a hint of bitterness in the short finish. Nose is sweeter than taste. Light body, mediumish lively carbonation. Was served very cold but it seems actually to be a whole lot better when at room temperature or slightly cooler; letting it warm also helps getting rid of some of the redundant carbonation, making the palate nice and smooth. Overall - it is very OK for a macro; years ago it must have been among the most drinkable local beers on the market. Today I’d say it’s really not far from the lower end of the craftier stuff we have in stores, maybe even better than some.
