Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2009
Clear golden body, with a few white patches and no lacing. Pleasant and fresh aroma of hops, grinded corn and newly mown grass with hints of citrus. It gives a very inviting appearance. The beer feels refreshing and crisp, tasting of apple, hops and celery, but also due to a delicate carbonation. I would have loved a lingering finish, however- this was a bit abrupt and I felt a bit put of by that. On the other hand, that leads to frequent sips and eventually a better turnover. (Shared with Stefan 24.Oct.09 at Hell Hunt, Tallinn)

Draught at Hell Hunt. Golden colour with a thin white head. Weak malty aroma. The flavour is malty with a hint of grass and citrus. Quite close to normal macro lager.

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2009
Thin white head quickly disappears. Pale yellow body. Caramelly straw aroma with apple notes. Dry apple, caramel, and straw taste with grassy notes. Mid-bodied. Dryish herbal chalky apple aftertaste with mealy notes. Quite a bit of sulphur. Decent. (0.33l draft at HH.)

Nekronos (4101) - Xalapa, MEXICO - AUG 20, 2008
Veyr nice, but nothing special either. The place is ok, not so expensive as many Estonian bars but still a normal lager.

SaintMatty (6805) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2007
Draught as Hell Hunt Hele in Hell Hunt, Tallinn- Golden in colour, not much aroma at all and quite grainy and a slight apple scent. Citrus in the taste with mild bitterness and not much aftertaste. Disappointing.
