3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The appearance is slightly caramel and amber in color, with a rich and persistent rocky head. It looks good, but not like a lager.
The aroma is characterized by soft, rounded malts and a very slight hint of lemony hops.
The taste is light, but with caramel and buttery hops being apparent. The hops taste a bit more like yuzu than I would have expected.
The mouthfeel is soft, with light and small bubbles.
Given that this beer had won a Gold Medal for lager style at the 2010 World Cup, I had high expectations. All in all, it was pretty good but not completely spectacular. That being said, I can still enjoy a number of these.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear amber color. Medium size, white head, stays. Bit sourish, mild hops, faint caramel malts, some breadiness in aroma. Burnt herbs, caramels, malty, bit milky and roast in taste. Mild bitterness. Hard to rate. I canít say there is something wrong with it, but dunno if I want to drink it again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Lovely sharp citrussy hop aroma, almost pils-like itís so crisp. Looks a nice orange, persistent tight head. Fairly dull taste compared to the aroma. Simple bready malts. Hops quite bitingly bitter, but nicely noble. Again, this is more pils-like than just a vienna. Late finish in fact is quite acidicly bitter.
