2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber color, cloudy off-white head. Aroma of brewing mash and rye bread with honeyish notes. Sticky mouthfeel. Medium-bodied. Leaves your mouth dry, some woody hops and light spices (cardamom). Not a bad brew, but doesn’t right hit the spot. Kind of märzen-style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2007 Draught (Beer House, Tallinn).
Huge thick creamy head. Pretty lively. Unexceptional premium lager, but as good as any German example. Being unfiltered, it looks great - as dark as a dark Marzen. Aroma was definitely beery, but a bit non-descript, and the taste was just a tasty balance between malt and hops. Quaffing beer.
