Kauge (754) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 21, 2014
33 cl bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja (Ä 3,70). BB 04.2015. Love the cap with its owl picture! Pours a dark coppery amber colour, head is off-white, quite big with good retention and some lacing. Sweet, somewhat bready malt aroma with herbal-grassy bitterness. Taste semisweet, malty and grainy with a caramelly note. Thin body with crisp carbonation, mouthfeel... dry, grainy and metallic - not very pleasant. Canít say I enjoyed this...
