sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2004
(Bottled) Golden lager color with a very small head. Very mild aroma with a hint of sweet fruitiness and alcohol. Sweet, honeyish flavor with a silghtly alcoholic feel and almost no hops. Medium-bodied, sugary and alcoholic palate. A paler, lighter and less interesting version of the brune. Reminds me of the Estonian strong lagers.

RichardGretton (4639) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2002
Frothy lagerish head initially, which soon fades from this amber beer. Very malty and lightly bitter flavour and aroma that is a bit too sickly. Not a very good biere to garde in my opinion.

On tap. Pours a clear golden with a white head and some lacings. Smells a bit of honey. Sweet and malty with strong honey flavors. Slightly lagerish. Light bodied and slightly waterish. The finish isa boring lagerfinish: bitter with a hint of sourness and some gunpowder hops.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2006
Clear light golden body with an average white head. Fruity aroma with a bit of spices mixed in. Very pleasant sweet taste, not full on in flavour but I enjoyed this better than the Brune.
